San Francisco welcomed Outside Lands festival goers with a bit of a heat wave.

Although it was barely looking back to the ’70s, the festival grounds felt steamy on day one, with venues like Spelling and ODIE receiving huge cheers earlier in the day. Friday is always the least crowded day of the weekend, and as such the entrance was relatively quiet early in the day (with plenty of vendors selling clear bags outside the festival, for those who forgot).

But like every music festival around 2022, the style was on display as much as the music. The early crowd was skewed toward college age and clearly dressed for temperatures above the expected high of 69 degrees. No specific trend was as fun as cow print was overwhelmingly clear, and without Halloween weekend, 2021 festival costumes were few and far between.
