Macca won’t be the only McCartney at Outside Lands.  His son James McCartney is also on the lineup.

Of course, there will be plenty to munch on during this yearly extravaganza of music, food and drinks.  The world’s only gourmet music festival will feature the Bay Area’s finest cuisines and is expanding the menu options in 2013.

Not only a major destination festival, Outside Lands has built a rep for itself when it comes to giving back to the community and has raised more than $6 million benefiting the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.  Plus, an economic study revealed that the festival generates more than $60 million annually to the San Francisco economy.
