Join us for the 4th annual outtasight, flower-powered night under the stars as we kick off summer with the Psychedelic Photosynthesis and Surrealistic Summer Solstice Jam. Spread out a blanket for an amazing night of free, live music, and psychedelic visuals in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park at the iconic Conservatory of Flowers on Wednesday, June 17, 2020.

The flower-powered celebration is free and open to all ages. A variety of food trucks from Off the Grid will be available.

Nightly Illumination

The outside of the Conservatory of Flowers will be illuminated at dusk, and continue to run as a loop throughout the night. The best viewing areas are on JFK Drive and in Conservatory Valley. Parking is available along JFK Drive.

Nightly – Sundown to midnight.

FREE – This is a public art installation and occurs outside the Conservatory.

Developed in partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, the light art installation, initiated by Illuminate, the nonprofit arts group behind The Bay Lights, together with Obscura Digital, a world-renowned creative studio specializing in large scale light-based art, uses gobo projectors to transform the all-white landmark with a series of exquisite scenes inspired by the rare tropical flowers within this national landmark.

The Surrealistic Summer Solstice is produced by Dawn Holliday with the musical direction of Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz.

The Conservatory of Flowers and Recreation and Park Department is grateful to the event sponsors, and numerous civic leaders and organizations for supporting the event.
