Those of you who refresh the Outside Lands web page every ten seconds may have noticed that the last remaining ticket options — a small handful of single-day passes for Friday, and $495 weekend VIP packages — were no longer available this morning. According to a giddy press release from festival organizers, this year's event is entirely sold out, trumping last year's impressive-but-not-quite-capacity sales. "Please do not come to the festival unless you have a ticket," the press materials warned, adding that a significant portion of ticket sales will benefit San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department. Outside Lands is also a boon for the local economy, generating more than $67 million last year, according to a study by San Francisco State University Professor Patrick Tierney. This year's complete sell-out augurs an even greater windfall.
