Essential California Music Festivals Guide

The 2018 California summer music festival season just ended so it must be time for the 2019 California summer music festival season to start. How far are you willing to go for a music festival? Zero miles? We can’t help you. But if you’re willing to go at least a few blocks there’s probably a music fest happening nearby. If you’re willing to travel all the way to the desert there’s definitely something for you. Once again, we’re starting to pull together a guide to 2019’s California music festivals starting in San Francisco heading to Los Angeles and beyond. This list is clustered by the distance starting from San Francisco (sorry, we’re SF-centric) and heading down the coast (admittedly, this format is a little confusing so we’ll probably arrange it by festival date at some point in the future). It’ll be updated as new music festivals and performers are announced. If it’s still in 2018 and you’re reading it, breathe deep, friend, we have some work to do.

Festival Fatigue? Outside Lands 2018 Fails to Sell Out

Outside Lands, the annual music festival in Golden Gate Park, has failed to sell out with only one day remaining before the big event.

This is unusual for Another Planet Entertainment’s premiere San Francisco weekend festival. Looking all the way back to 2013 the event has always sold out in advance of the weekend. 2015 saw tickets gobbled up in record time.

Outside Lands 2018 Releases Single Day Lineups

If you’ve been chomping on your wallet wondering which day of Outside Lands would be the best single day ticket investment we now have your answer. The Golden Gate Park summer music festival has released the daily lineups. Good luck deciding because each lineup is a doozy.

Outside lands 2018 Lineup

Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. If we were to put money on which day would sell out first we’d put it all on Sunday. Only three acts stand between Janet Jackson and Janelle Monáe possibly stepping out onto the same stage together. Crazier things have happened at Outside Lands, so we will keep our fingers tightly crossed for an epic duet.

Outside Lands 2018 Adds Janelle Monáe, Billie Eilish, and more

If you were wondering how Outside Lands would recover from the loss of Huey Lewis and the News we have some good news! San Francisco’s biggest music festival announced Friday it would add Janelle Monáe, Billie Eilish, Saba, and Hobo Johnson.

Outside Lands New Lineup

The four new acts will join a bill featuring artists like Janet Jackson, the Weeknd, Beck, and Florence + the Machine.

The music festival, hosted in Golden Gate Park, takes place between August 10-12. The day-by-day lineups haven’t been announced but our money is on Janelle Monáe landing on the same day as Janet Jackson because we’re all secretly hoping the two will share the stage (and can we please get Grimes on the bill?).

Check out videos from the new additions below and to find out more about Outside Lands and other California music festivals see our Essential California Music Festival Guide.

Outside Lands 2018: Huey Lewis cancels tour due to hearing loss

Seeing Huey Lewis and the News would certainly have been one of the high points of attending Outside Lands this year. The band, steeped in decades of perfect pop hits, always create a rambunctious, must sing-along party atmosphere whenever they perform. Unfortunately, the 67-year-old rock frontman of the band has canceled the tour due to hearing loss. Continue reading
