Lineup Experiences

The Mission (formerly known as Eco Lands) is Outside Lands’ cause-oriented space within the festival, dedicated to helping patrons discover, learn more about and get involved with local, difference-making organizations. Each year, The Mission is transformed to raise awareness about a specific cause and this year’s focus is on violence prevention. The cause is selected by the festival community, ensuring that it resonates with the values and concerns of the attendees. While The Mission has a new focal point each year, it will continue to house all of the cause-based organizations involved with Outside Lands Works, and we will continue to invest in music and arts education programs and foster the long-lasting relationships with non-profits we have worked with year after year.
