5 Reasons to Attend San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music Festival 2010

If you’re in or around the San Francisco area this weekend, you’re going to want to come to the 2010 Outside Lands Music Festival at Golden Gate Park.

And in case you haven’t heard about it or if you don’t know who’s going to be playing, we’ll give you 5 excellent reasons to make your way out to Golden Gate park for what is going to be an amazing weekend.

The festival kicks off on Saturday morning with the first acts going on at noon and ends Sunday evening. For tickets and more information, check out the Outside Lands official website.

Ever heard of Freelance Whales? The Devil Makes Three? Garage A Trois? No? Well how about My Morning Jacket, The Strokes, Wolfmother, Kings of Leon, Nas, Damian Marley, Social D, Phoenix, Chromeo, Gogol Bordello, Cat Power, Slightly Stoopid or Empire of the Sun?

Any of those ring a bell?

Who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to see My Morning Jacket cover The Band’s It Makes No Difference

The only downside of this lineup is that you’re going to have to miss some amazing performances because, despite their best efforts, there’s not enough time in the day for a few of these great artists not to overlap.

A taste of the bay area is an understatement when it comes to the restaurants that will be catering to the Outside Lands crowd.

From Namu’s, to Grumpy’s, to Spicy Pie’s and El Huareche Loco’s, there are over 25 restaurants dealing the best of the best of San Francisco — the perfect compliment to the 23 beers you just drank.

Puke it all up. Rinse. Repeat.

Wine Lands anyone? At Outside Lands 2010, 26 local wineries will be supplying the sauce. Who ever said you can’t chug wine at a wine tasting?

Look out for me, I’ll be the one pounding wine in my beerbong.

Oh, and if you’re not so refined, just stop by one of the many beershacks to keep yourself evenly saturated all weekend, and always, always, always remember to pregame.

We all know the loose-stereotype San Francisco women tend to portray — hot, happy, friendly and free spirited.

Mix in some live music, some delicious alcohol and a few inhibitions, and you’ve got yourself a weekend to remember that you won’t necessarily remember.

Need I say more?

If you’ve never been to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the third most visited park in the United States, you need to check out this sprawling, stunning, natural 1.5 square-mile spread (yes, that’s 20% larger that NYC’s Central Park).

From waterfalls to fairgrounds, from forests to lakes — Golden Gate Park is the perfect setting for what is going to be one of the greatest festivals of 2010.
