Outside Lands Drops Food and Drink Roster

The 78 restaurants at this year's festival represent approximately one for every musical act.

You already knew Gorillaz, Metallica, and The Who are this year’s Outside Lands headliners, but now it’s time for the real news. Like Metallica, who last performed in 2012, Rich Table’s porcini doughnuts with raclette sauce are coming back.

The festival dropped its full list of eatin’-and-drinkin’ options for its 10th go-round, and it’s bigger than ever: 78 restaurants — or, approximately, one for each musical act — more than 40 wineries in Wine Lands and 28 breweries in Beer Lands, plus A Taste of the Bay AreaCheese Lands, Outside Clams, Choco Lands, Cocktail Magic, and the return of the wacky, wonderful GastroMagic Stage, whose full lineup is still TBD. 

Marlowe‘s Anna Weinberg curates this year’s A Taste of the Bay Area, which means one thing for sure: the Marlowe burger. Joining the lineup for the first time are Tartine Manufactory, FOB Kitchen, Smitten Ice Cream, Alba Ray’s, Dabba, Little Star Pizza, Fearless Coffee, Boba Guys, and Cheese Steak Shop, along with food trucks Lady Falcon Coffee Club and Jackrabbit.

Dave McLean of Magnolia Brewing Company put together this year’s Beer Lands, with a Northern California-centric list of breweries including newcomers Altamont Beer Works, Alvarado Street, Black Sands Brewery, Laughing Monk, and Oakland United Beerworks. If you’re a serious music-festival fan and you ride the circuit every summer, you’ve probably thought, “Jesus H. Christ, enough with the fucking Heineken, already.” You’ll be glad to know that, while that Dutch equivalent of Coors is represented on the Polo Grounds, Outside Lands partners with Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. for some great default options, like Pale Ale and other specialty brews.

Meanwhile, Wine Lands head honcho Peter Eastlake brought in Ravenswood, Failla Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and Japanese sake on tap from Bushido. There’s also “The Back Wine,” a mini-golf course with wine from Cannonball.

Outside Lands takes place in Golden Gate Park Friday, Aug. 11 to Sunday, Aug. 13. See the full music lineup here. The full food lineup is below.
