Like many of our foremost institutions, the Outside Lands 2012 music festival is a concept taken from our ancestral European homes and perfected in the cauldron of American ingenuity and diversity. Offering an option in every extreme, each summer we consume our tunes through a series of traveling roadshows, temporary tent cities, and city park spectacles, upping the ante with each go around. Genre specific, openly eclectic, drugged out, and family friendly, in an age of polyculture, no individual taste is left unaccounted for, no market or demographic untapped. We even have a gathering catering to crime committing clowns.
