SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/MP3.COM) – All week, you can grab free songs from some of the best acts performing at this year’s Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco, only at

Outside Lands opens its fourth year running with a diverse line-up few other festivals could match. Demonstrating three different takes on rock music, Phish, Muse, and Arcade Fire close out Friday, Saturday, and Sunday respectively, following 20+ acts that range from R&B (the goddess Erykah Badu), dubstep (Eskmo), trip-hop (Phantogram), and dance (Major Lazer). Suffice it to say, if Outside Lands were a person, she would have that iPod whose shuffle could make everyone at a given house party smile.

It only helps the festival’s cause that it brings gifts beyond music: Outside Lands is more than just live music, it is also a festival of art, food, and wine. If there was ever a more winning combination than this quadfecta, we as mere mortals have yet to experience it.

The Spotlight will run through these non-music, Bay Area treats throughout the week, so keep checking as you plan your festival itinerary.

For now, back to what they do best: free music. From today onward, download songs from OK Go, Deadmau5, Best Coast and more. They also have a few tracks that will ONLY be available for 24 hours. Mark your calendars to enjoy as much free Outside Lands music as possible.
