A metropolis of cuisine and beverages alike, Outside Lands is the perfect place to tantalize your taste buds, heighten your palate, and learn all about what is most mouth-watering in San Francisco. In celebration of this culinary exploration, we welcome the return of the GastroMagic area. GastroMagic is the home for awe-inspiring and intriguing events framed around culinary moments.

GastroMagic would not be complete without the return of Big Freedia and her troupe, beckoning hungry fans to bounce, twerk and shake for beignets. Beats will be dropped behind culinary wizards, and an ever eclectic, star-studded stage will dazzle – look for Action Bronson, Jarobi White of A Tribe Called Quest, Roy Choi, Chris Cosentino, Chris Bianco, Anna Weinberg, Jennifer Puccio, and Stuart Brioza. Some of San Francisco’s top tastemakers hit GastroMagic in the way of Woodhouse Fish Co., Belcampo, Pacific Cocktail Haven, Trou Normand, Guittard Chocolate, Humphry Slocombe, and Tacolicious. From funk to soul, the audience can also get down with local musicians and entertainers, including Mustache Harbor, Jazz Mafia, and Beatz n Pieces. Descending on San Francisco from other parts of the country are rapper Boyfriend and alt-pop/hip-hop artist K.Flay, American folk band Joseph, and D.J. Williams’ Shots Fired, a side project from Tiny Universe’s talented guitarist, and an all-star lineup by D.J. Williams' Shots Fired, a side project from Tiny Universe's talent guitarist. Finally, GastroMagic’s appetite for humor stays strong with Jay Larson of Comedy Central and The Late Late Show and Matt Besser, Upright Citizen Brigade (UCB) co-founder and The 420 Show creator.

Like every good kitchen, GastroMagic shares its works in progress; during select programs, the first guests to arrive will indulge in the performance's creation at GastroMagic’s Tasting Table.

See below for a taste of the current GastroMagic lineup.

Linguistic lampoon, gastronomist, and the talented artist behind the upcoming Blue Chips 7000, Action Bronson is in the building. So come chill and please both your ears and your stomach as you chow on some of Mr. Wonderful’s bites from his upcoming cookbook.
Back from the crescent city, please welcome the return of Big Freedia, aka the "Queen of Bounce," and the Queen of the GastroMagic stage. She's pairing with Brenda's Soul Food for the 4th annual bounce show, so twerkers be ready to move for those beignets.
Come enjoy a bundle of legends in this nostalgia-filled arrangement. Chef Roy Choi, one of Cali's hottest chefs and food-truck innovators, will be providing the eats and demoing some mouth watering Kalbi and spice-filled Kimchi, which will either have you breathing fire of spice-filled delight or your lips shivering in awe from its bountiful taste. Joining him, both Dan the Automator and Del the Funky Homosapien make your knees pop with that old-school flow. Don't miss this, who knows when you'll have another chance to re-live those glory days.
Little did you know, master MC Jarobi White, an original member of the legendary rap group, A Tribe Called Quest, is also a master chef. Paired with SF's Chris Cosentino and the Jazz Mafia, they will be bringing the funk and a bunch of goodness...just as long it's not high in cholesterol.
Come and get it while it's cold! The Bay Area's dazzling duo crafters of unusually flavored creamed delights, Humphry Slocombe, will be serving a limited edition flavor with their Instant Hard-On chocolate topping while comedian Matt Besser destroys the last piece of your funny bone that you have left. Besser will be performing his iconic stoned spectacle 420 show so gear up for an afternoon of uncontrollable laughter fueled by a dank strawberry ice cream to that dry-mouth.
Move around, tap your feet and be amazed. You might even learn a thing or two while you're at it. San Francisco's own B-Boy dance crew, Beatz n Pieces, are set to perform along with a dirty downbeat. That's not all though. Prepare for a battle of the butchers with the Bay Area's Belcampo.
Get ready for a K.Flay Fiesta as local fave Tacolicious crafts a limited edition mouthwatering cheese paradise in honor of the alt-pop/hip-hop artist, K.Flay. Come through, grab a bite and wash it down with some genre-defying vibes from the lady herself.
Dock up at the GastroMagic stage with your captain's hat and get ready to groove.

It wouldn't be the same without feasting on bites from the ever-indulgent Woodhouse Fish Co.

Straight from New Orleans, multi-dimensional artist Boyfriend takes her show from the Boudoir to the Kitchen, giving a whole new meaning to her big room banger 'Marie Antoinette' in which she commands the listener to "Let Them Eat Cake!". Joining Boyfriend onstage will be SF's one and only Guittard Chocolate who will be creating a cake sculpture in real time that lucky audience members just might get to taste.
Step aside Soul Train line, re-imagine the Cafeteria Line. The Animals will be in the House, while D.J. Williams’ Shots Fired belt out the classics. Audience members will get a chance to walk the cafeteria line, showing off their soulful moves and taste-test some cafeteria faves by SF chef Richie Nakano. "Guess what I am?!" Guitarist D..J.
