Outside Lands To Feature Sit-Down Forest Feasts + Off-Site Food Events This Year


If you’ve already gotten your Outside Lands tickets for this year, (and for those who didn’t they’re sold out. Maybe next year), OL is bringing you a new glamping experience that well exceeds last year’s standards.

As announced this week, there will be a series of sit-down Forest Feasts available to festival-goers that don’t conflict with prime-time headliners’ shows, catered by the fine folks at Trestle in North Beach. And these will all take place in a “secluded forest lounge,” presumably up the hill from Hellman Hollow.

This will be a prix fixe situation from executive chef himself, Jason Halverson (named Chef of the Year in 2015 by Eater), with four courses and two options for each course. These include a falafel salad, corn soup, saffron risotto, the restaurant’s popular garganelli Bolognese, Ora king salmon, a braised shortrib, peach cobbler, and chocolate mousse. And pairings from Wine Lands curator Peter Eastlake from Wind Gap, Preston Farm and Winery, and Fount. 

“We’re thrilled to recreate Trestle for gourmands and festival-goers of Outside Lands this year,” says Ryan Cole, partner of Hi Neighbor Restaurant Group, which owns Trestle, Stones Throw, and more. “This is a first of its kind dining experience and we want it to be memorable and unlike anything that’s been done before.”


// The Forest Feast will run you $175 per person including Champagne, dinner, wine pairings, and you can make reservations here. There will be two feasts per day, August 5, 6, and 7, at 2:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., with a limit of 48 people at each seating. While all the more, being an Outside Lands ticket-holder. duh.
