The agreement, which will now go before the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for final approval, extends the contract to 2031. Outside Lands, which highlights the City’s music, arts and culinary offerings, draws more than 2 million visitors and contributes an estimated $66 million annually to San Francisco’s economy.

“Outside Lands has become part of the cultural fabric of San Francisco, and we are happy our partnership will continue,” said San Francisco Recreation and Park Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg. “Hosting the festival provides invaluable support for Rec and Parks, enabling us to maintain our open spaces and offer scholarships to our top-notch recreation programs.”
