Juxtapoz @ Outside Lands 2017: Outsider Art, Nychos and Metallica

August 14, 2017

In the iconic misty fog of a San Francisco summer, we spent our weekend at Outside Lands Music & Art Festival, putting on a live-painting event and sculpture park in our annual "Outsider Art" installation.

The line-up of painters was stacked this year: Nychos, Apex, Amandalynn, Greg Mike, Balloonski, Sam Flores, N8 Van Dyke, Joey Colombo, DEB, Ian Ross + Max Ehrman, Griffin + Gus Cutty, Renos and Chris Jehly. For the music line-up, despite the disappointment in A Tribe Called Quest's two-day cancellations, Gorillaz (read our cover story here), Metallica, Solange, Fleet Foxes, the Who, Lorde, Little Dragon, Warpaint, Belle & Sebastian and Action Bronson held down the fort quite nicely.

Take a look at some of the action in our gallery above, from sights at our booth, Metallica headline shots and some of the people we met along the way. All photography by Mike Stalter.

Thank you to Jeben Berg and all the artists for their hardwork and painting all weekend. Thank you to Lagunitas for the beer! Thank you to JanSport for hanging out! And thank you to Outside Lands for all the support!
