San Francisco greeted Outside Lands festival-goers with a small heat wave.

Although it barely got its start in the 1970s, the festival grounds felt steamy on day one, with locals like Spelling and ODIE drawing big cheers early in the day. Friday is always the least crowded day of the weekend, so entry was relatively smooth early in the day (with plenty of vendors selling clear bags outside the festival, for those who forgot).

But as with all music festivals around 2022, the style was on display as much as the music. The early college-age crowd swerved, and they were clearly dressed appropriately for temperatures higher than the expected high of 69 degrees. No specific trends as fun as the cow print were so obvious, and without the timing of the 2021 Halloween weekend, 2021 festival costumes were few and far between.
