4 Foolproof Ways to Sneak Booze Into Outside Lands

JOE STARKEY

Outside Lands is almost here, and while we're all excited about finally getting to see Robert DeLong live, we're a little less excited about how much booze costs at this festival. Unfortunately, booze is one of A LOT of things you are not allowed to bring with you into the park.

Coincidentally, we wrote this article about four ways to sneakily hide booze in everyday objects that would pass inspection and be allowed into the park. But we definitely in no way endorse doing it, because that would be against the rules. So check out these nifty hacks, fellow rule-followers, and definitely don't use them to bring alcohol into Outside Lands. Or something.

You will need:

STEP TWO: Fill with booze of your choice.
