    Default Outsidelands Festival Coming Back?

    And looking for a promoter! Could Goldenvoice decide to step in?


    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/...entry_id=32752

    Three-day rock show may return to Golden Gate Park

    SFC

    Crowds arriving on the third day of Outside Lands in August.

    Whether you loved it or hated it, if you live in the city you probably have an opinion on August's three-day, Outside Lands festival, which brought big name acts including Radiohead to Golden Gate Park.

    The Recreation and Parks Department was thrilled by the event, which brought $815,000 into their coffers and allowed the agency to showcase its crown jewel. Now, the department is looking to sign on a promoter to produce a similar event, in August, for the next three years -- with the possibility of a two-year extension. The idea? To create a new revenue stream for the city's parks; to "create an iconic event" representative of the city and its main park, that provides economic benefits for the region; and to generally call attention to the parks system, which is in dire need of cash.

    With that in mind, this time around, Rec and Parks is looking for a minimum payment of $1 million in rent, plus a percentage of revenues (i.e., food and beverage sales) from the event. Additionally, the department plans on tacking a $3 fee onto each ticket that will go straight back to parks. The parks department commission will consider the issue Thursday; if they decide to move forward, applicants would have until Dec. 19 to submit their proposals.

    The first time around, the biggest issues for neighbors surrounded parking and transit. One of the most outspoken groups was the Planning Association for the Richmond, whose members literally live next door to the park. In a letter sent Nov. 5, the group outlined a handful of concerns about future events. The parks department appears to have acquiesced to some of their demands, such as setting an attendance limit (80,000 per day), but won't end the Sunday night concert until 9 p.m., two hours after neighbors recommended.

    We expect Another Planet Entertainment -- which broke new ground last year both by talking the city into letting them throw the concert and by cutting the department into a percentage of ticket sales -- to apply for the contract. It also seems likely that Live Nation -- thought to be the world's biggest promoter-- will jump at the chance.

    So I guess this means that the Bonnaroo people (I forget the name) will not be producing this festival? Fuck livenation... let GV do it.

    Superfly. Thats it. I guess this means they are offically out. Maybe they are going back to Vegoose. Their website last year indicated Vegoose 09 may be a possibility.

    The festival circuit can go on just fine without this sad excuse for a music festival.

    I hope that application submittals are approved and that APE or another promoter steps up. For a first time event, I think they hit a home run. The real test will be to see if they can improve upon some of the minor mistakes from year 1. I thought GG Park provided a perfect setting for a festival and I really enjoyed all 3 days I spent at Outside Lands this year.

    Yeah because the sound completely going out several times during your headliners is just an out of the park homer, one for the records.

    You got some low standards there to think it was amazing. Make the stage set up better and get a better PA.

    The worst part was the sound problems had to do with demand on the generators so it just came down to poor planning by the organizers.

    As easy as it was to sneak in this year. I will probably not buy a ticket next year.

    OSL definitely needs some help. I loved the lax security though. GO GV!

    I'd love for OSL to come back. It has a lot of potential if they work some kinks out.

    I don't know about GV doing it, but perhaps AEG in general will pick it up and do something with it similar to Rothbury.

    With Livenation at the helm they will probably accidentally light the park on fire or ask the city to turn off the public transportation before and after the festival.

    After Pemberton I have no faith in them doing a better job.
