Taken at Outside Lands 2011
In case you couldn’t tell, we’re HUGE music fans. In fact, we were still anxiously awaiting the start of Coachella when we purchased tickets to Outside Lands. And despite air-conditioned bathrooms and desert heat, there is one thing this festival has that Coachella never will-San Francisco.
Bay Area based, Another Planet Entertainment is responsible for this three-day event that manages to satisfy the City’s diverse music tastes. While it may seem odd to have Metallica and Norah Jones play the same festival, it works.
It’s officially April, and that means your news feeds and twitters are about to be inundated with “OMG COACHELLA!!” countdowns proceeded by “BEST WEEKEND OF MY LIFE!!!” recollections.
Since the mayhem surrounding last year’s sold out festival, Goldenvoice capitalized on indie hysteria and decided to make it two weekends. However, if you weren’t willing to fork over nearly 300 dollars in June without seeing the lineup, and were not hovering the purchase button the day more tickets were released in January, then you missed out on the most amazing experience yet again. Or did you?
