Although barely poking into the 70s, the festival grounds felt steamy the first two days of Outside Lands, with locals like Spelling and ODIE drawing big cheers early in the day. Saturday’s crowds packed the venue after slightly smaller crowds on Friday, and as such entry was relatively smooth early in the day (with plenty of vendors selling clear bags outside the fest, for those who forgot).

But as with all music festivals circa 2022, the style was on display as much as the music. The early crowd skewed college-aged, and were clearly dressed for temperatures above the expected high of 69 degrees. No specific trends as fun as cow print were overwhelmingly clear, and without the Halloween weekend timing of 2021’s festival costumes were few and far between.
