Before you fasten your seat belts for another three-day festival at Golden Park this weekend at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, check out this revealing report on where our Outside Lands dollars end up. The report also tells how increased rental fees in SF Parks such as Golden Gate Parks are rising fast, at the expense of smaller, more niche events.

Put on your dancin' emojis, it's time to get down.
Good lord, did we have a ball at LA’s FYF Festival this past weekend. Add the brilliantly curated festival to the top of your West Coast Festival bucket list ASAP, trust us. To sum it up in terms we can all understand, it’s basically the Treasure Island Music Festival of LA, minus the surrounding body of water, Golden Gate Bridge view, and add in 90 degree weather.

Are you guys alive? Last weekend was bonkers, and there’s no end in sight to the SF live music parade.
Not going to Outside Lands but still need your live music fix? Or, headed to Outside Lands and need to start getting pumped? In either case, you might want to just camp out at the Independent this week.
We’re only one week away from Outside Lands week, but we wouldn’t classify this busy week as the quiet before the storm. Prepare for some noise.
