Music festivals are no longer just “music festivals.” In addition to showcasing the industry’s top names, several of the country’s renowned annual celebrations have begun to draw some legit food talent. Just look at Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas, which features an entire culinary advisory board and includes 40 of the best chefs in the U.S.
San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival is certainly no exception to the ongoing trend. The seventh annual event this past weekend was headlined by Kanye West, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Killers and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. There was definitely some loud music going on. Equally as loud, however, was the lineup of food on offer. Courtesy of Food Is The New Rock, which covers – you guessed it – the convergence of food and music, here is a gallery of 10 of the weekend’s most impressive grub items.
