Music festival to net park more than $1M

Golden Gate Park will receive more than $1 million in donations from the weekend’s Outside Lands Music Festival.

The park was guaranteed to receive a donation based on how many people attended. About 150,000 attended, which contractually translated to a $1,050,000 donation, according to the contract with the festival’s organizers.

The festival, which featured 65 musical acts ranging from Tom Petty to Rodrigo y Gabriela, wrapped up its third and final day of events Sunday night; clean up started early the next day, said Elton Pon. He said concert organizers have until Wednesday to clear off all fences, stages and other items — and complete a litter cleanup.

Officials will then look at the several acres used and assess the damage to turf and grounds.
