You've got to love a festival that offers an "eager beaver" pass... That's the deal with Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival, which takes place Aug. 28-30 in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.
Among the headliners will be Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Incubus, Black Eyed Peas, M.I.A., Modest Mouse, Jason Mraz and a hundred or so other rock, hip-hop, world music and electronic bands you've never heard of.
So what separates Outside Lands, which is brought to you, in part, by the same folks who put on Bonnaro, from the 20 or so other major music festivals this summer? Outside Lands boasts big talent, but also is probably the only festival to offer dim sum and wine tastings.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on April 19, but Visa cardholders can take advantage of the "eager beaver" advance VIP ticket package which includes massage services.
