Ah San Francisco, home to The 2 Bandits HQ & Outside Lands Music Festival. Outside Lands was born in 2008 & is held in beautiful Golden Gate Park. What makes Outside Lands so special compared to its California fest competitors like, Coachella or FYF, is rather than a stifling hot desert (just asking for heat stroke) or smoggy downtown LA, we get a change of scenery and hop around stages that are surrounded by woods and forestry. History of Golden Gate Park goes back to the 1860s, in SF’s Gold Rush days, the area was part of the “great sand waste” and considered “outside lands”. Great name for a festival that knows its history.
Tons of rad, bandit-esque artists have played the fest throughout the years including: Radiohead, The Strokes, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Cat Power, Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, Portugal. The Man, Arcade Fire, Beirut, The Joy Formidable, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Hall & Oates and leading up to this year’s excitement: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Kanye West, The Killers, Lykke Li, Haim, The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, Jenny Lewis, Warpaint, Spoon… just to name a few of our faves.
We’re SO excited to share a booth with our sister brand CAMP Collection (shopcamp.com)! Come visit us by the main stage and score some killer deals on samples, exclusives, and classic Bandit pieces!!
