Outside Lands extends its lease for concert in Golden Gate Park 

An Outside Lands co-producer said he plans to stay in Golden Gate Park, “for the next 20 plus years,” even though its lease with the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department expires after its fourth three-day festival in August.

The lease agreement came with an extension option for an additional two years, an offer that Another Planet Entertainment plans to utilize it.

“Now here we are in our fourth year,” said festival co-producer Allen Scott, VP of Another Planet. “But we plan on doing this festival for the next 20 plus years.”

The City will collect $1.05 million for rent and $1 per ticket or 10 percent of sales this year.

Scott said that they already have the headliners for all three days set and will probably release the lineup by the end of the month.

He said they initially wanted to start the festival as a two-day event then progress to three days, but Radiohead in 2008 came to them and wanted to perform so they lined them up for Friday.

Three days were one too many last year, but not this time.

But a tight-lipped Scott would only say that he’s “excited” about this year’s lineup.
