Only 12 days a year they’ll be on. And they’re off by 10pm. I live close by. It’s all the pissed off families of kids who have moved in there recently who applied and didn’t get accepted. Honestly it is.

I remember when I lived in the Outer Sunset and people were up in arms because of the “noise pollution” from Outside Lands. I was like, it’s once a year for three nights. Go outside and listen to some good music for free on your porch and chill.

environmental reviews seem to be the last resort for NIMBYs in this city?? too many shadows... or too bright of lights apparently.

lets not forget this is our future generation and kids outside our city have this. would love to see more successful SF natives grow up here

So ridiculous. It's a school....doing school things. And it's only for 15 nights/​year and they are off by 10:00pm.

If neighbors didn't want to hear noises from a school then they shouldn't have bought a house near a school. WTF.

I grew up in the outer sunset (48th ave and Moraga, what up!) I currently live near soccer fields with stadium lights in another district.

I see nothing wrong with this at all. NIMBYs gonna nimby.
