Outside Lands in San Francisco

READY TO CONQUER DAY 1 OF OUTSIDE LANDS
As you know music and food are my two great loves, so I flew over to San Francisco, a city obsessed with food and so rich in musical history, to check out the Outside Lands music festival. 65, 000 people a day showed up to Golden Gate Park to enjoy the musical stylings of Jack White, Santigold, Stevie Wonder, and many more, while gorging on stellar food truck offerings like bacon funnel cakes, fried chicken ‘n’ waffles, and pork belly buns.

Keep your eye out on MTV News (Mon-Wed at 6:30pmET) for the individual artist interviews, starting this Monday with David Cross, and in the meantime, the Outside Lands wrap-up is up on the News site.

Here's some photos of the bands I caught up with and performances (and food) we were able to catch in between:
