LIVE, IN PHOTOS: Outside Lands 2018

Eleven years after its debut, the Golden Gate Park extravaganza continues to push away the fog.

Not unlike the music of James Blake, Outside Lands has blossomed into a multi-faceted event—teeming with arena riffs, SoundCloud beats, and furikake waffle fries—from the promising kernel of emotional indie rock it was forever ago in 2008.

Along with weed, women and artists of color jolted new life into the festival, including but certainly not limited to its fiery headliners, The Weeknd, Florence + the Machine, and Janet Jackson. Revisit the electrifying experience of a few of these artists’ sets in the extremely live photos below.
