Outside Lands 2023, Day One in Pictures

The Outside Lands Music Festival, a San Francisco staple for 15 years, kicked things off on Friday, August 11th, in Golden Gate Park. Paige has been photographing both behind the scenes and in front of the many stages at OSL for all 15 years to document the bands, the crowds, and the staff.

Highlights included Interpol performing their seminal album Turn on the Bright Lights in its entirety, a joyful set from DJ Diesel (aka Shaquille O’Neal), and the tour kickoff for Janelle Monae.

Our gallery also includes coverage of Willow, Nation of Language, Becky Hill, Nation of Language, Raveena, Samia, and Yaya Bey, Taper’s Choice, La Doña, as well as some street photography portraits of the many fans.
