The Outside Lands Music Food Wine and Art Festival kicks off this Friday August 12th in San Francisco, California. This is my favorite concert series of the summer. Way too fun! I went a few years back and in addition to the stellar bands and delicious food and beverage vendors, Eco Lands knocked my socks off. What makes Eco Lands so cool is that it’s 100% powered by alternative energy. Outside Lands sets the tone for sustainable events and encourages concert goers to help decrease the festival’s carbon footprint.
A few suggestions for a rockin good time at the festival:
- Ride your bike– There will be on site valet services. (Plus you won’t have to circle around the city trying to find parking.)
- Bring a refillable waterbottle– Cut down on plastic waste and bring your own stainless steel bottle into the venue. Check out the Eco Lands page for all the deets on their refillable water program.
- Stroll over to the solar stage– Solar in cloudy SF? Who woulda thought? I guarantee when you hear the jams coming out of solar powered amps you’ll be just as shocked as I was.
