NO LATER THAN August 6, 11:30 a.m.. One-day tickets for Saturday have exhausted but day passes are still available for Sundays.
August 6, 9:30 a.m. San Francisco’s Outside Lands are usually full. Not this year. Day tickets are still available for Saturday and Sunday.
If you’re hesitating whether to grab a last-minute ticket, my advice after spending the day there on Friday is to go, even if you’re not overwhelmed with the lineup and only know a few bands playing (see our recommendations here). The best part of my day was discovering artists I didn’t know existed, like Zambian artist Sampa the Great who delivered a viscous whirlwind of jazz-infused hip-hop, rap and Afrobeats; and Fay Webster who soothed her audience with whispered, amorous indie-country ballads while playing guitar.
