SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – Big names in music and huge crowds are on tap this weekend at Golden Gate Park for Outside Lands. While people are not supposed to bring outside alcohol, a group of attendees said they made some unorthodox plans to get around that rule.

Josh, who did not give his last name, told KPIX 5 that the venue’s size helps hide hard alcohol.

“I’ve got about four or five friends who buried their Maker’s Mark about three days ago,” he said.

Josh said they buried the whiskey with a GPS tracker on it. On Friday, they waited for a large crowd to show up at Outside Lands. Then they used an app on their phone to find the tracker and start digging.

“I’m ready to go drink that Maker’s Mark right now, I’m telling you,” Josh said.

The event’s organizers said they have never heard of such a thing, and didn’t give it much thought.

“That’s a new one,” Gregg Perloff of Another Planet Entertainment. “That one I haven’t heard before… I’m not going to spend a lot of time worrying about that.”

Josh said he and his friends have been doing this for a couple of years.
