To Our Outside Lands Community We would love nothing more than to be with you this August, listening to our favorite artists in Golden Gate Park and celebrating the best of the Bay Area for our 13th consecutive Outside Lands. After lengthy discussions with local and state health authorities about the impact of COVID-19 both in our community and throughout the world, we believe it is in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety that Outside Lands not be held in 2020. In what has been a disappointing year for concertgoers and the music industry alike, Outside Lands is looking to the future. We all miss the much-needed community and positivity that comes with our annual celebration in San Francisco and we look forward to bringing the music back in 2021. We are filled with excitement, hope, and anticipation as we announce our lineup for NEXT year’s festival, returning August 6-8, 2021. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, June 25 at 10am PT. We can’t wait to be back in Golden Gate Park with you, enjoying the best in music, food, beer, wine, art, cannabis and more for what we know will be our best year yet. The health and safety of the Outside Lands and San Francisco communities have always been and will continue to be our top priority. We are in close contact with local and state officials, working together to create the safest possible environment for you, our fans. For those Eager Beavers who purchased 2020 passes, we encourage you to hold on to them as they will be honored for the 2021 festival. Passholders choosing to rollover to 2021 will be treated to exclusive contesting for upgrades, giveaways and more throughout the coming year. If you are unable to attend the new date, you have until July 24 to request a full refund. We thank you for your patience, love and support. – The Outside Lands Festival Team Link in bio. #OutsideLands

While Outside Lands’ 2020 cancellation comes as little surprise, following a flurry of cancelled or postponed festivals (including, most recently, the rescheduled Coachella), their lineup for 2021 truly gives music fans something to look forward to. Joining the acts listed above are Brittany Howard, Vampire Weekend, Khruangbin, Kehlani, Nelly, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Earthgang, Beach House, Sofi Tucker and Tyler, The Creator, among many others.

Tickets will go on sale for the newly-announced dates tomorrow, 25 June at 10:00 am PST, while passes for the 2020 festivities will be honoured for the following year.

In a statement on Instagram, festival organisers wrote, “We would love nothing more than to be with you this August, listening to our favourite artists in Golden Gate Park and celebrating the best of the Bay Area for our 13th consecutive Outside Lands.”

They continued, “In what has been a disappointing year for concertgoers and the music industry alike, Outside Lands is looking to the future. We all miss the much-needed community and positivity that comes with our annual celebration in San Francisco and we look forward to bringing the music back in 2021. We are filled with excitement, hope, and anticipation as we announce our lineup for NEXT year’s festival…. We can’t wait to be back in Golden Gate Park with you, enjoying the best in music, food, beer, wine, art, cannabis and more for what we know will be our best year yet.”

Organizers also shared that ticket holders who choose to hang onto their passes for 2021 will be “treated to exclusive contesting for upgrades, giveaways and more throughout the coming year”. Those seeking a refund will have until July 24 to do so.
