Outside Lands rocks Golden Gate Park

August 23, 2008 7:39:24 PM PDT
At least 60,000 people are expected to crowd into the polo fields in Golden Gate Park.

ABC7 News spoke with one woman from the East Bay. She told me it took her two and a half hours to get to the park, because many of the busses were too full to stop.

Many people are still trying to get in to the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival even though it's another sold-out night.

Today there are 26 bands on six different stages. The headliner tonight is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Ticketholders were encouraged to take public transportation, but many found it was a rough and long road to Golden Gate Park.

"We all took public transportation and we got passed up by many, many, many, many busses that were already loaded up from Market Street," said East Bay resident Susan Campodonico.

Police reported some car break ins after the event let out last night at 10 p.m., that's at least 60,000 people walking in nearby neighborhoods.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are scheduled to stop playing just before 10:00 p.m. tonight. There's still one more day and tickets are available. Jack Johnson is the headliner for Sunday night.
