Outside Lands announces dates, Eager Beaver tickets

Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly Productions and Starr Hill Presents, in a partnership with the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department, are proud to announce the third annual Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, confirmed to take place August 14 – 15, 2010 in San Francisco’s historic Golden Gate Park. Benefiting the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department and celebrating the four pillars of Bay Area culture – music, food, wine and technology — there is no other festival that honors its home city to such an extent, making Outside Lands one of the most unique and enjoyable events in the country. The artist lineup for the festival will be announced on June 1. A limited quantity of lower-priced Eager Beaver tickets will go on sale on May 7 at 10am PST.
