SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— The organizers of Outside Lands say the music festival has been a major economist boost for San Francisco since it began six years ago. San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department received an impressive assessment at a meeting on Thursday from Greg Perloff, the CEO of Another Planet Entertainment, which produces the three-day music festival.
Perloff told the commission about 200,000 people attended this year, reaping $80 million in economic benefits.
“All the hotels in town were sold out. In fact, they were so sold out that a lot of the artists and managers and agents who are coming in could not even find a room in town,” he said.
