Vegan Survival Guide to Outside Lands

Eat, drink, and be merry thanks to our list of all the veg-friendly food at San Francisco’s hottest music festival.

Outside Lands tickets? Check. Sunscreen for sweaty day-dancing and a fleece for chilly evening sets? Check. A comprehensive guide to all of the vegan-friendly festival grub, beer, and wine you need to stay fueled throughout the weekend? Keep this list handy over the weekend, and you've got that, too. Here’s our guide to all the healthy, fried, and everything in-between dining at San Francisco’s biggest music weekend of the year. Fuel up at any of the 21 veg-friendly food vendors and then groove (cruelty-free, of course) to Lana del Rey with a Sauvignon Blanc in-hand, or get all the feels from Radiohead while sipping an IPA.
