Outside Lands Announces 2019 Culinary Lineup

Don't worry: Nombe's ramenburgers and Rich Table's porcini doughnuts with raclette are coming back — and almost all the cool new arrivals are in G.A.

Coachella makes you drink beer inside designated alcohol zones that feel like those free-speech quarantine areas from the height of the Bush administration, and the only thing edible at Lightning in a Bottle were the giant “Killa Dillas” that you have to wait a long time for.

Outside Lands, by contrast, has really good food, every year — and 2019 is no different. Thirteen years in, the music, art, and food festival that takes over Golden Gate Park every August announced its culinary lineup, and the results are quite reassuring. With more than 200 individual items from 80 restaurants/food trucks/food carts, 46 wineries, 31 breweries, and six cocktail bars, you couldn’t possibly get to it all. But as in years past, they’ve helpfully organized things into Wine Lands, Beer Lands, Cheese Lands, Woodhouse Fish Co.’s Outside Clams, Cocktail Magic, and a GastroMagic stage, plus A Taste of the Bay Area.

Tanya Kollar, curator of A Taste of the Bay Area, has thrown in a few fresh Bay Area additions this year, including hamburger and quinoa burgers from Causwell’s, Dungeness Crab and Lobster Fries from Chef Smelly’s Creole and Soul Food, Toscano Sloppy Joes from Guerra’s Quality Meats, vegan chili cheese fries from Henri’s + KronnerBurger, chorizo pulao from Rooh, Aleppo Chicken Pita Sandwiches from Noosh, Carioca Rice Donuts from Pinoy Heritage, and fresh Mini Doughnut Sundaes from Hookt Mini Doughnuts.

Over at Beer Lands, Admiral Maltings’ Dave McLean has roped in Woods Beer Co. and worked with Sonoma Springs and Local to create special-edition beers just for the festival, using Admiral Maltings’ own malt. Returning favorite Sierra Nevada Brewing will bring back Hazy Little Thing IPA and Outside Lands Saison, too. Anything that keeps us free from Heineken’s clutches is more than welcome!

Under Peter Eastlake’s guidance, of Wine Lands’ 46 options, 42 are from Northern California — and half of them are in the $10-$14 range. Because Outside Lands aims for zero-waste and the eco-minded Paul Simon is Sunday night’s headliner, there’s even more of an emphasis on biodynamic wineries than in years past. It’s Cocktail Magic that’s changed the most, with 15 Romolo heading up a new lineup that includes Comstock Saloon, RadHaus, Starline Social Club, The Snug, and The Treasury. The GastroMagic stage, which got moved to the far end of the festival footprint and seemed to have a slimmed-down presence overall, will announce its schedule later in the spring.

See the full list of culinary attendees musical acts (both of which are subject to change) below.
