San Francisco welcomed its Outside Lands festival goers with a mini heat wave.

Though it was barely hammering into the ’70s, the festival grounds were muggy on the first day, with locals like Spelling and ODIE raising big cheers early on. Friday is always the least crowded weekend day and therefore market entry was relatively smooth at the start of the day (with many vendors selling clear bags outside of the festival, for those who have forgotten).

But as with all music festivals around 2022, style was presented just like the music. The early crowd skewed at college age and were clearly dressed for temperatures above the expected 69 degree maximum. No specific trends as fun as a cow’s print were overwhelmingly clear, and without the 2021 Halloween weekend, festival costumes were few and far between.
