Other Outside Lands news includes "s" tent. Named for San Francisco's infamous Barbary Coast district, the tent will be hosted by San Francisco's theatrical-circus/variety group Vau de Vire Society and will showcase the finest local rock, cabaret, circus, variety and comedy acts. The tent itself is the world famous Victoria Spiegeltent, on loan from Belgium. The turn of the century "magic mirror tent" or "spiegeltent" is anything but a conventional circus tent, as its walls are made of oak-framed mirrors and ceiling adorned in stained glass.
The complete Barbary lineup is below:
The Yard Dogs Road Show
Vau de Vire Society
The Madd Vibe Orchestra
Eric McFadden Trio
Fou Fou Ha...with Kitten on the Keys playing Madame/Hostess
Zap Mama and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears have also been added to perform at the festival.
