Outside Lands also features attractions that focus around food, wine, and art, and there is a separate music lineup for the wine lands section of the park. There are also areas that offer separate entertainment, including a sports lounge, an arcade/bar, and various food and art vendors.
The festival is designed to utilize several strategies of being eco-friendly, as well as to educate the public about eco-friendly movements.
