San Francisco welcomed Outside Lands festival-goers with a mini heat wave.

Though the festival site barely poked into the 1970s, it felt steamy on day one, with locals like Spelling and ODIE cheering loudly early in the day. Friday is always the least busy day of the weekend, and as such, early in the day entry was relatively smooth (with plenty of vendors selling clear bags outside the party, for those who forgot).

But as with all music festivals around 2022, the style was as apparent as the music. The early crowd was skewed college age and clearly dressed for temperatures above the expected maximum temperature of 69 degrees. No specific trends as fun as cow print were overwhelmingly apparent, and without the Halloween weekend, the timing of 2021 festival costumes was few and far between.
