The Key Details

Golden Gate Park is a large area of greenery located in the heart of San Francisco that takes up the majority of the city’s west portion. We highly recommend taking public transportation to avoid having to circle around for street parking, which will most likely be sparse. Outside Lands offers a convenient pre-paid shuttle that picks up festival goers from the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium at Civic Center, which is only a few steps away from the Civic Center BART station. The N-Line Muni Metro is also an option since it runs between Civic Center Station and the Sunset District, which is only a few blocks away from the festival’s southern entrance.

Single-day tickets range from $199 for general admission to $2,199 for those who desire entry to the Golden Gate Club. 3-Day General Admission tickets start at $449 and can cost up to $4899 for the exclusive Golden Gate Club Outside Lands experience. Tickets are now available for purchase at

The Lineup

We’re the most excited for this year’s lineup, which features headliners Kendrick Lamar, Foo Fighters, and Odesza. The diverse lineup also includes Lana Del Rey, Odesza, Megan Thee Stallion, the 1975, Janelle Monáe, Maggie Rogers, Fisher, Ethel Cain, WILLOW, Alvvays, Father John Misty, Lil Yachty, Alex G, and Shaquille O’Neal.

Sets You Won’t Want to Miss

Kendrick Lamar. The American rapper and songwriter is most known for his progressive music and socially conscious song lyrics. His latest album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers is raw, authentic, and packed with meaning

Lana Del Rey. Along with most of the world, we’re all big fans of Lana’s latest project Did you know that there’s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd. The American singer-songwriter’s ninth studio album is melancholic and moody, leaning on piano as the main instrument in a lot of the tracks. Lana’s set will be a refreshing break from the more energetic hip-hop, rap, and pop acts.

Maggie Rogers. Maggie Rogers is on the rise having recently completed the first portion of the North American leg of her “Feral Joy” tour. She’s now touring all around Europe and will be making a few more stops in the U.S. before flying to San Francisco for Outside Lands. Maggie is known to be an incredible live performer and we are excited to catch her set this year.

Ethel Cain. Singer-songwriter Ethel Cain, affectionately known to her fans as “Mother Cain,” released her debut studio album, Preacher’s Daughter, in 2022 and has since gained a cult following on social media. Ethel’s music can be described as ethereal and atmospheric dream pop with undertones of Christian music and Gregorian chants. Her hit song “American Teenager” is one that we are very excited to experience live.
