2021 3-Day Ga, VIP, Payment Plan & Golden Gate Club Passes On Sale Now

After a series of starts, stops and rescheduled dates and teases, Outside Lands has announced its intention to move the 2021 festival to Halloween weekend for the first time ever, shifting from their original August 6-8, 2021 dates that were announced last June.

3-day passes are currently for sale, plus Payment Plan 3-Day pass currently starts at $150 down with two additional payments. There has been no announcement made about 1-day passes yet.

How Will Outside Lands Be Allowed by SF & CA?
It’s unclear at the moment what the COVID protocols will be and exactly how the festival will be allowed by the city. The current city and state restrictions only allow for large outdoor events at “permanent venues” with assigned seating only even when San Francisco enters the yellow tier. So either the restrictions will need to change, the park will need a waiver, or the event will require San Francisco to enter the as-yet-defined “Green Tier” which would allow for more large live events. (Please note there are new rules being implemented on April 1, 2021 which are unclear if the location needs to be a “permanent venue” or not.)

To ensure Outside Lands will be the safest possible environment for fans, staff, artists, and the world at large, festival producers Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly, and Starr Hill Presents have announced Outside Lands 2021 will shift from their traditional August dates to October 29-31, 2021.

New to the 2021 lineup are some exciting artist additions including Glass Animals, Lord Huron, Flo MIlli, Kaytranada, fresh off two GRAMMY wins, and San Francisco’s own 24kGoldn.

“We have been eagerly anticipating our return to Golden Gate Park for over a year now and although we have to wait a few months longer, we couldn’t be more excited to present an epic Halloween edition of Outside Lands,” said Allen Scott, President of Concerts & Festivals at Another Planet Entertainment and Co-Producer of Outside Lands. “The shift in dates allows us to work collectively to determine any new safety measures necessary to implement during the festival weekend. We ask fans to use this time before the festival to continue exercising common sense COVID safety practices and we look forward to being together again soon.”

The safety of the festival remains a top priority and Outside Lands producers are working closely with local and state officials to determine this year’s safety and security measures.
