No Outside Lands experience is complete without a little night show action. Here’s our picks.
Thursday: California Academy of Sciences’ after-hours Nightlife party has joined forces with Outside Lands once again to kick the fest off with performances by lo-fi indie darlings Alvvays and SFAppeal favorite GRMLN.
What: Alvvays and GRMLN at the California Academy of Sciences
When: Thursday, August 6; doors: 6pm
Where: California Academy of Sciences: 55 Music Concourse Dr

Friday: Kick it up from the psych folk ease of a night at the Academy of Sciences and keep the party going from day one of Outside Lands on through the night. Metz’s heavy-duty rock and Speedy Ortiz’s ferocity will have you dancing the whole night through.

Saturday: Yeah, it’s the middle of Outside Lands. And yeah, this isn’t exactly in the city. But Lindsey Stirling is such an impeccable performer and the Greek Theatre is such an iconic location that it’s more than worth your time to venture out to Berkeley.
