As 7x7.com readers were the first to know, Outside Lands' resident authority, Ranger Dave, has joined the Twitterverse and is eager to reward loyal followers. Yesterday marked Dave's first venture out into the streets of San Francisco, tweeting clues along the way regarding his mysterious whereabouts. He promised one lucky fan two 3-day passes to the must-see festival in Golden Gate Park, August 28-30, and he didn't disappoint.
At 1:16 PM on Monday, June 1, the lively cartoon ranger tweeted the following: "Ranger Dave is hitting the streets tomorrow. He will have 3-Day passes on him. Find Ranger Dave first and get two free!"
Get ready to follow another hot celeb in the Twitterverse. Somewhere among your daily feed of Ashton Kutcher tweets, you can now get updates on all things Outside Lands from the one and only Ranger Dave. He's the uber-cool park ranger who first broke news of this year's hot O.L. lineup (if you haven't gotten his ridiculously catchy tune stuck in your head yet, check out the video at http://www.sfoutsidelands.com/index.php). Make sure to follow Ranger Dave's tweets at http://twitter.com/sfoutsidelands and get all the latest news on this year's can't-miss music extravaganza in Golden Gate Park, August 28-30.
As if you needed more reasons to attend this year’s Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, the organizers have gone and added even more artists to the already packed lineup. Taking place in Golden Gate Park August 28th-30th, the second annual, three-day extravaganza features headliners like Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Incubus, Black Eyed Peas, M.I.A., Jason Mraz, Modest Mouse, and TV on the Radio.
A tricky little peel back ad over at SF Gate reveals a partial list of this year's Outside Lands Festival Lineup. If you don't have time to hover around while it unfurls, here it is: Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Incubus, Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz, M.I.A, Mars Volta, Thievery Corp, Modest Mouse, Ween. Definitely some heavy hitters in the music game (circa 90s-early 00s). Where are the newcomers who had us drooling last year? Coming soon we hope.
We're feeling a little post-festival depression, coming off of a whirlwind week of Noise Pop. So the announcement of this year's Outside Lands dates comes at a perfect time. The festival, which was a huge success last summer (minus the dirth of cabs) is going down this August 28 - 30 in Golden Gate Park. Mark your calendars. The festival will once again benefit the San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department, which could use a little boost these days.
