San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music, Food, and Arts Festival is filling Golden Gate Park to the gills this weekend, with over 200,000 people attending. Featuring food, beer, and wine from local restaurants and music from dozens of artists such as Elton John, Kendrick Lamar, and the Black Keys, it’s the place to be if you’re in the Bay Area.
It’s also a popular event to get scalped, faked, or stolen tickets for, as evidenced by a rash of police busts, which even ensnared a musician slated to play. Artist Fantastic Negrito was caught with a man trying to sell counterfeit all access passes, and wound up having his set at the fest cancelled.
That didn’t stop a swarm of determined young hopefuls from having a go at it, however, as evidenced in the below video.
Who needs technology or a fake ticket when you can just charge the fence line and hope for the best? Of course, the downside is that when you’re caught, and with the new encrypted wristbands required to pass from one event area to the next you likely will be, even if you make the initial perimeter, you’re gonna be out way more than a ticket cost what with fines and bail.
