August 6, 9:30 am San Francisco’s Outside Lands usually sells out. Not this year. One-day tickets are still available for Saturday and Sunday.
If you’re on the fence about whether to snag a last-minute ticket, my advice after spending the day there on Friday is go, even if you’re underwhelmed by the lineup and only know a few bands playing (see our recommendations here ). The best part of my day was discovering acts I was unfamiliar with, like Zambian artist Sampa the Great who delivered a viscous swirl of hip-hop, rap, and Afrobeats drenched in jazz; and Fay Webster who soothed her audience with whispery, lovelorn indie-country ballads while playing guitar.
