The second annual Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival has come and gone, with all of its unpredictable weather and unending media sharing. That aside, Outside Lands was truly an event for everyone: locals, tourists and the community of music and art appreciators at large.

Well representing San Francisco’s growing industry of mobile food, OSL was catered by many local eats, such as Philz Coffee, Bonny Doon Vineyard (Santa Cruz) and Burger Meister. A variety of vendor booths gave festivalgoers a sense of San Francisco lifestyle, whether it be one of the many green coalitions or simply a Bay Area-based clothing company — all of which were perfectly complimented by outstanding live background music. And not to forget the music, well, the photos say it all:
