OUTSIDE LANDS 2012 DATES ANNOUNCED
We are proud to announce the 5th annual Outside Lands taking place August 10 - 12, 2012 in San Francisco's historic Golden Gate Park!
With incomparable vision marrying music, food and wine in a fashion unlike any other festival in the country, Outside Lands is an annual tradition for San Francisco and the Bay Area community and has become one of the most popular summer events in the country. The San Francisco Chronicle noted, "Outside Lands is not just a rock concert. It's an all-encompassing concept - a miniature city that rises in the middle of the park and bustleswith great local food, beautiful people and nonstop music from every imaginable genre..." After the festival's 4th annual appearance in SF, Rolling Stone said, "This was the year that Outside Lands finally became the festival it always promised to be - which is to say, one of the greats." EAGER BEAVER TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY A limited quantity of Eager Beaver 3-Day tickets will go on sale this Friday, March 16th at 12PM PDT for only $165!

I saw that o FB a few days ago too and was going to make this thread but totally forgot!! I'm trying to make it this year. At least a day pass and combine it with a trip to see my sister. Now that I know the dates, I can think about it more seriously!
Ooh! They do clues too? I hadn't caught that. 5 days until I know if I am "visiting my sister" that weekend.
Haha I'm in the same situation. My sister lives an hour drive from the park, so if I decide to go it will be under the guise of visiting her. This festival is incredible and I hope the lineup matches last years. OSL 2011 was one of my favorite festival/music experiences that I've had yet. Excited for the lineup!
"In the darkness hundreds of glowsticks streaked the air like tracer shots in war. Giant inflatables bounced over dozens of light sabers pointed skyward. Stuffed animals impaled on sticks danced above the hot crowds, puppeted by someone just given ecstasy by a friend made seconds before."
