    Well you're probably spared of a Pearl Jam appearance since they played last year. Oh wait, am I just making a foolish assumption here...

    Unless there is something that you have to see that you won't be able to see anywhere else I would say skip it.

    I don't know, waiting three hours in the sunset to take the N back to civilization isn't always worth it to see Tenacious D.

    I attended this in 2008 when Radiohead played and I've not wanted to go back . . and, I happen to live about 1.5 hours away. It's not really set up well. Half the stages are on one side of the venue and then you have to walk through a long corridor (for lack of a better term) where a lot of bottle-necking occurs in order to get to the other stages. The lines were INSANE to order drinks or food or to use the restrooms. In fact, I think we actually skipped drinking that day because of it. It's cold (I know, it's SF), and the grounds aren't lush like Coachella's. I remember there being some technical problems too, and it just wasn't well organized. Now, having said all that, I guess all of these issues could be chalked up to it being the first year of the festival and maybe by this year they will have ironed out the kinks, so to speak. That's just my honest opinion of the festival, of course. Maybe you will go and have a really good time. I guess nothing quite compares to Coachella.

    the scenery itself is incredible...

    the lineups have been just ok overall but decent for a city festival

    the vibe is more of a city party type of vibe compared to what you get at coachella or the Roo......

    if you are going to see some bands and have a good time then for sure go...

    if you are looking for a coachella type of experience, then skip it... its more of a city vibe and to each their own at that point...

    The Chemical Brothers are playing a live show at the Hollywood Bowl on Aug 29, so if that's the Outside Lands weekend, I hope that they would get booked.

    i really hope they focus on getting a better lineup.... they have to step it up this year or its gonna be goodbye!!


    to improve their festival they should go for bands like Arcade Fire, My Morning Jacket, Soundgarden and others and they would have a great turnout.. but they have to improve the lineup...

    Would the Chem Bro's really get booked for this? I see them doing the Fox Theatre (like Underworld last year). Arcade Fire might get me to actually buy a ticket to this festival, though.

    8/16: Anthony Naples, Maxmillion Dunbar @ f8
    8/18: Man Man @ The Chapel
    8/23-8/24: FYF Fest
    8/30: Peaking Lights @ The Chapel
    9/3: Bear in Heaven @ The Independent
    9/24 - 28: Decibel Festival
    10/5: The War on Drugs, Cass McCombs @ The Fillmore
    10/18-19: Treasure Island Music Festival

    Scoop's limited intelligence prevents him from learning from his mistakes, so I would say it is likely.

    Also, what exactly is the point of this thread right now? The dates haven't even been announced yet, and "Outsidelands" is two words.

    The best part of that was when scooper actually thought that picture of Jason Mraz was Blackswan.

    That would be a shame if it was really the case. I feel that festivals are the best medium for Arcade Fire shows right now.

    They've gotten too big to play 3,000 capacity theaters.

    They're probably big enough to play arena-sized venues, but do we really want to see Arcade Fire do an arena tour? Not very "indie" is it...

    Do they hate playing outdoors in general? If not then Arcade Fire sounds like a bunch of assholes. Why in the fuck wouldn't you want to play festivals other than to be different? Just about every band in the world (who don't mind playing outdoors) seems to love playing festivals.

    This will probably happen. I'll call Iggy & the Stooges performing Raw Power. And I really hope they get Roger Waters to play the Wall. I will more than likely be back to this festival. Golden Gate Park is my favorite place.

    I think the lineup's have been great. The first year was ridiculous...Radiohead, Beck, Primus, the Black Keys, Black Moutain, and M.Ward...just to name a few. Um, WEEN last year

    the vibe is more of a city party type of vibe compared to what you get at coachella or the Roo......
    I couldn't think of a better city to party in.

    if you are going to see some bands and have a good time then for sure go...

    Partly just that they're sick to their collective asses of them. They've said as much a few times, that they're just burned out on festivals. For Neon Bible, they played something like 30 fests in just over a month.

    It's kinda cool to go to a festival now and then, but dragging your carcass from one stinkey field full of drunks to another for weeks on end - and then getting up on stage and throwing yourself at them every other day - probably gets a bit tedious after a while. Changing rooms and portacabin showers lose their novelty quite rapidly. That was the one thing I learned from working at little local events, as soon as the act touches down on the airport tarmac until the moment they leave, nearly every second is accounted for. Between getting set up, giving interviews, doing photo shoots and all the bussing from one to the other, bigger bands have to to a lot of horrifyingly lame soulless stuff between every actual set they get to play.

    There's a big difference between festival shows and your own shows, too. I know one of the things they always say they love about playing is the exchange with the audience; that's a lot more difficult to generate from the festival stages they play now. It was fine back when they were in stinky little tents with no security guys; but now they're on big huge stages, with big huge safety trenches full of bouncers and photographers, and then the crowd.

    More than anything, I have a hunch that given how many of them there are, and how many of them are married, dating or related to each other, they'd rather not do something that simultaneously puts them all in a constant state of discomfort and forces them into confined space together. I'd imagine it's kind of like sharing a flat in a submarine that smells like portaloos.

    In summary; I think that having to deal with the general inherent stresses of the circuit is worth less to them than the paycheck. I think that's a shame - I love to hear thousands of people sing along with those songs - but I think I can kind of see their reasoning.
