With the 10th annual Outside Lands festival still fresh in the memories of music fans, it would take a really special occasion to re-instill open-air-fest enthusiasm in Bay Area folks.

Parachute Days, coming to West Marin on Saturday, Aug. 26, is shaping up to be such an occasion. Crowdfunded and initiated by some of the area's youngest, brightest and most creative minds, it's a day of music, food and community that organizers hope will become a tradition.

Behind the festival is a team of five, led by Gabe Korty. With a photography degree from California College of the Arts, Korty used to be a part of an artists' collective called Session Space in Oakland. These days, he lives in Point Reyes Station, keeping himself busy with woodworking, sculpting, writing music and shooting film.
