Though we’re down with Coachella as much as the next girl, it’s not the only music festival worth frequenting—in fact, a slew of other weekend jaunts (Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, to name a few) are giving the SoCal behemoth a run for its money. While Coachella has become more about the parties and see-and-be-seen culture, other festivals are still very much focused on the concert-going experience. Enter Outside Lands, San Francisco’s answer to a mega music fest. On account of a killer lineup and the fact that it’s still in the Golden State, we couldn’t be more excited to watch our favorite artists kill it up in the bay this weekend. So how does one pack for the temperate weather? (Remember, this ain’t the desert.) Layer, layer, layer. Here, 3 days worth of on-point outfits to channel your best fan-girl style.
