When and Where: August 9-11; Golden Gate Park in San Francisco

The Scoop: Going into its sixth year, Outside Lands has quickly grown into one of the most sought-after music, food and wine festivals on the West Coast. Featuring a mix of legendary acts, festival veterans and up-and-comers, there will be something for nearly everyone. Follow signs to Outside Lambs, our favorite spot for indulging in savory dishes like lamb poutine.
Insider Tip: Dress warmer than you imagine August to be and bring layers. Golden Gate Park can be 10-15 degrees cooler than other parts of San Francisco and temperatures drop more as the sun goes down.
Escape From Your Escape: The festival is located in the heart of San Francisco, so there will be plenty of time to explore the city by the bay. Check out our MF City: San Francisco Guide for where to stay, workout, eat and drink.
