Outside Lands Food & Drink

Outside Lands returns this year on August 9-11, and with it, seven distinct food and drink experiences we all know (and love): A Taste of the Bay Area, Wine Lands, Beer Lands, Cheese Lands, Outside Clams, GastroMagic and Cocktail Magic.

At A Taste of the Bay Area, 80 Bay Area restaurants, trucks and pop-ups are coming to feed you. Familiar faces like Humphry Slocombe, Koja Kitchen, Little Skillet, Sorrel and more are back for another year (watch what we found people liked and didn't like last year), but some of the Bay Area’s most interesting pop-up restaurants are also joining in on the fun.

Pinoy Heritage, a Filipino venture by Francis Ang, will be serving Sisig Fried Rice, Pork Lumpia and Carioca Rice Donuts. Oakland’s Chef Smelly’s Creole and Soul Food is bringing their Famous Surf and Turf Fries, Dungeness Crab and Lobster Fries and Impossible Burgers to the table. For fans of the KronnerBurger, Oakland’s chef Chris Kronner is reviving his “burger to believe in” at Henry’s + KronnerBurger.

Hawaiian cuisine has been having a moment in the Bay Area, so Outside Lands is paying tribute to the craze. James Beard award-winning chef Sam Choy brings his Poke to the Max truck to the festival with a menu of Poke Rice Plates, Pork Belly Rice Plates, Korean Fried Chicken and Spam Musubi. On the other side, Michael Mina, Michelle Karr-Ueoka and Wade Ueoka are taking the Trailblazer Tavern to the VIP area. For those lucky ticket holders, the Trailblazer team is serving up Kalua Pig Steam Buns, Kimchee Fried Rice and Umami Kettle Chips.


Also in VIP, Omakase, another Michelin-starred restaurant, will serve a Chef's Selection of Assorted Sushi while their VIP neighbor A16 cooks up wood-fired bianca pizzas and wood-fired salsiccia pizzas.

For thirsty attendees, Beer Lands features 31 Northern California breweries like Woods Beer Co., Altamont Beer Works, Alvarado Street and Lost Coast. Dave McLean, Co-Founder of Admiral Maltings and Founder of Magnolia Brewing Company and Alembic Bar, will team up with at least two breweries, Sonoma Springs and Local, before the festival to make different special edition Outside Lands brews for the Beer Lands menu—each beer will use Admiral Malt.

In terms of vino, Outside Lands has 46 wineries between Wine Lands and the VIP area! More than half of the wines on the Wine Lands menu will be priced at $10-14 per glass. One of the more interesting offerings is No Fine Print, produced by Pat Corcoran (Chance the Rapper’s Manager) and Tim Smith (Skrillex and Zedd’s Manager).

No word on the GastroMagic lineup yet, but last year will be hard to top with celebrities and chefs like Vice’s Matty Matheson and Eddie Huang, Bill Nye, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” competitor Shangela and more.
