Future of Outside Lands Uncertain

In today's edition of the Examiner, Ken Garcia wrote an interesting piece on the "Inside Drama Behind Outside Lands." According to Garcia's article, there's a power struggle inside the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, which oversees any requests for giant festivals in Golden Gate Park like Outside Lands. That struggle is putting into question whether Another Planet will be a shoe-in to promote the giant three-day festival for the second year in a row, or if the bidding process will have to be opened up so rival promoters Live Nation could throw their hat in the ring, which it sounds like they're anxious to do. No matter who gets the ok to use the space in the end, planning for the outdoor concerts will need to start soon in order to lock in talent in our current festival-rich environment. -- Jennifer Maerz
