Key Details

Golden Gate Park is a 1,017-acre park located on the west side of San Francisco, stretching from the center of the city all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Parking in San Francisco tends to be scarce in the neighborhoods surrounding the park and especially during the festival weekend. We recommend taking public transportation or opting in for the festival offered prepaid shuttle that picks up attendees from Bill Graham Civic Auditorium at Civic Center. 3-Day General Admission tickets start at $465 and single tickets start at $199. Other ticket options include GA+, VIP, and the exclusive Golden Gate Club Outside Lands experience. To learn more about ticket pricing and purchase a ticket, visit sfoutsidelands.com/tickets.

Sets You Don’t Want To Miss

KAYTRANADA is a DJ, producer, and musician who draws from a wide range of influences including hip-hop, R&B, funk, soul, and house music. Being able to seamlessly blend these genres together is what makes KAYTRANADA stand out among other electronic/dance acts. His latest album, TIMELESS is a perfect example of that and features other well known R&B and hip-hop artists like Childish Gambino, Anderson .Paak, SiR, Thundercat and PinkPanthress. Alongside his production & visual effects, this set will be sure to leave you as a new fan if you aren’t already. 

Singer-songwriter, Chappell Roan is on a meteoric rise and we’re so excited that she’ll be performing at Outside Lands! Known for having extravagant drag-inspired ensembles and out of this world makeup, her music is the embodiment of queer joy. She recently gained a lot of new fans while opening for the first leg of Olivia Rodrigo’s tour, as well as her appearances at other festivals this year including Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Governor’s Ball. If you aren’t already familiar with her music, her energy on stage will leave you dancing throughout the entire set.  

Daniel Caesar is a dynamic R&B singer-songwriter who released his third studio album, Never Enough in April 2023. Straight off his world tour last year, Outside Lands will be his first festival appearance within this album cycle. His voice sends chills down your spine, making you question how a person can even sing like that. You may recognize his bigger hits like “Get You (featuring Kali Uchis),” and “Best Part (featuring H.E.R.),” off his debut album Freudian, but trust us when we say his entire discography is worth the deep dive into. 

Chris Lake is a DJ and producer who just released “Summertime Blues” with Sammy Virgi and Nathan Nicholson. He frequently collaborates with last year’s sub-headliner FISHER, and as a producer, he’s topped industry charts over and over again. His music will elevate you to another world and his ability to create a range of different beats from chill to hype drops creates a dimension that sets him apart from typical tech house sets.
