Outside Lands is the biggest of seven San Francisco events to allow attendees to sell and partake in cannabis on location as part of a new legislation. The city's test program will allow the organizers of each function to set up consumption areas.
In the case of the festival, whose 2019 edition will take place from August 9th-12th at Golden Gate Park, revelers will be allowed to purchase and consume marijuana in a 21+ area called Grass Lands. "Grass Lands spotlights the celebration, education, and integration of cannabis products into daily life," reads a post to the event website. "We invite you to stop by and explore interactive activities, live music, talks and more."
Outside Lands has taken place annually since 2008. In addition to rock, hip-hop and pop billings, electronic music's presence on the lineup has grown parallel to the EDM boom of the past decade. Among the 2019 edition's headliners are Kygo, Flume and RL Grime.
