Fourteen years after we built the original Outside Lands iconic windmills, One Hat One Hand partnered with Iron and Bloom to design and build a new future-forward version. This 80-foot-high state-of-the-art windmill was unveiled at the 2022 Outside Lands Music Festival in Golden Gate Park.


Festival attendees at the 2022 Outside Lands could view the windmill up close to see the inner workings of the mechanisms and see through the windmill. Designed for ‘Magical Realism’ this piece functioned as a beacon for the festival, critical wayfinding and a fun selfie photo spot.
