We at Outside Lands care about Golden Gate Park and the surrounding communities. In our first 14 years, we’ve contributed over $31 million to San Francisco’s Recreation & Park Department to maintain and preserve the most beautiful urban park system in the country. Additionally, we recognize our event’s impact on the neighborhood, and we work hard to mitigate that impact. In an effort to communicate as much information in advance as possible to you, consider this letter a planning tool in regard to the festival.
Another Planet Entertainment and Superfly Presents, in association with San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department and the City of San Francisco are producing the 14th Annual Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park (Polo Field, Hellman Hollow, Marx & Lindley Meadows), taking place from Friday, August 5th – Sunday, August 7th, 2022. Event hours are 11am - 10pm on Friday and Saturday and 11am - 9:40pm on Sunday.
The festival is working closely with all San Francisco Agencies, especially Recreation and Parks Department, SFPD, SFFD, SFMTA, and SFDPH to produce a safe, healthy, smooth, and successful event for San Francisco.
If you have any inquiries before the festival weekend begins related to road closures, site restrictions in Golden Gate Park, or other general concerns, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we’ve done in past years, we will have a Community Hotline to respond to any issues that may affect you during the festival. The Outside Lands festival hotline will be available from 10:00am – 6:00pm on Thursday, August 4th and from 10:00am – 11:00pm on the festival days (Friday August 5th – Sunday August 7th). The hotline number is (415) 965-8001.
To help alleviate vehicle congestion in your neighborhood, we strongly encourage patrons to take alternative means of transportation to the festival, including MUNI, private shuttles, biking, or walking.
We will have two dedicated tow trucks and one Parking Control Officer on each side of the Park to quickly respond to any blocked driveways or any other parking issues related to the festival. SF Rec & Park has printed signs alerting attendees to not block driveways, which may be obtained at the front desk of SFPD Richmond Station at 461 6th Avenue. If you need to have a vehicle towed, please call 311.
To ensure safety and security of public and working crews, we would like to make you aware of roads and locations that will be closed for the duration of event load in and load out. To provide a safe, alternative bike route, there will be a two-way bike reroute created on MLK.
SFMTA rules state that it is OK to park in the street and block one’s own driveway as long as the driveway does not serve more than 2 tenants. Any multifamily units of 3 or more cannot block the driveway.
During Outside Lands, SFMTA will enforce blocked driveways on a complaint basis only, giving a better cushion for residents. Please note that vehicles may never park over the sidewalk.
