Outside Lands 2021 Moves to Halloween Weekend, Expands LineupPhotos by Luke Gilford, Jason McDonald, Neil Krug Music News Outside Lands
After pivoting to Inside Lands in 2020, San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival is planning a return to Golden Gate Park in 2021, shifting from their traditional August dates to Oct. 29-31, Halloween weekend. The fest’s “special Halloween edition” will feature headliners Lizzo, 2021 Grammy winners The Strokes, Tame Impala, Tyler, the Creator and Vampire Weekend, and has added acts including Glass Animals, Lord Huron, Flo Milli, Kaytranada (another recent Grammy winner), 24kGoldn, Claud, Bartees Strange and Brijean.
“We have been eagerly anticipating our return to Golden Gate Park for over a year now and although we have to wait a few months longer, we couldn’t be more excited to present an epic Halloween edition of Outside Lands,” said Allen Scott, President of Concerts & Festivals at Another Planet Entertainment and Co-Producer of Outside Lands, in a statement. “The shift in dates allows us to work collectively to determine any new safety measures necessary to implement during the festival weekend. We ask fans to use this time before the festival to continue exercising common sense COVID safety practices and we look forward to being together again soon.”
Would-be attendees with COVID concerns can consult the fest’s health and safety page here for more information on the measures they’re taking. Current ticket holders’ tickets will be honored for the fest’s October dates; those unable to make the new dates can request refunds until April 17. More ticket info is available here.
