Dear Golden Gate Park Neighbor,

We at Outside Lands care about Golden Gate Park and the surrounding communities. In our first 9 years, we’ve donated over $17 million to San Francisco’s Recreation & Park Department to maintain and preserve the most beautiful urban park in the country. We recognize our event has an impact on the neighborhood, and we work hard to mitigate the impact. In an effort to communicate as much information in advance as possible to you, consider this letter a planning tool in regards to the Festival.

Another Planet Entertainment and Superfly Presents, in association with San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department and the City of San Francisco are producing the 10th Annual Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park (Polo Field, Hellman Hollow, Marx & Lindley Meadows), taking place on Friday, August 11th - Sunday, August 13th, 2017.
