    Looks like The National and Daughter are set to play Friday. They're playing the Greek on Saturday and the Hollywood Forever Cemetary on Sunday.

    Food, Wine and Beer lineups are all out. Wise Sons and Blue Bottle look like great additions to the food options. Beer and wine look stellar as usual.

    Is the national a band that could have an after show? Probably not on the same day they are playing the festival... First year going, what are some past aftershows? Tough to get tickets to like Lollapalooza?

    Uh if they're playing Outside Lands on Friday, then L.A. Greek on Saturday, then Hollywood Forever on Sunday, I highly doubt they are playing an aftershow.

    Night shows aren't limited to the weekend. Last year they went Wednesday-Sunday.

    Although, to your credit, "aftershows" would imply they occur immediately after the festival. Night shows have traditionally occurred during the week leading up to the festival and after the festival days themselves.

    I'm definitely fan of the pour-thru style coffee served up by Philz and Blue Bottle, but festival crowds do them no favor. It's a mess. They have the same dis-interested, too-cool-for-school (so became a coffee pourer instead?!) staff working the polo fields and the line is stupid long. I hope some of the Blue Bottle folks attended a year or two, saw how slow things were at other coffee vendors, and roll to Outside Lands with 50-60 of those pour-thru set ups, constantly have 25 gallons of water heated, and the coffee pre-measured for the filters.

    There are some good looks adds in the food line up. Nopalito comes to mind. Never had a bad dish from that joint. Was hoping for Lagunitas Brewing to join the Beer Lands this year, but it's still a solid group. Can't wait for some Mad River suds.

    Yup, Nopalito's totopos con chile definitely stood out to me as a must-eat this year.

    I never had Philz at OSL but had it at a regular store of theirs. I'm not a real coffee drinker but my brother sort of forced me to have it. I can honestly say that it was the best cup of coffee I've ever had.

    Also is anyone else sort of thinks the Beerlands line up is just sort of Meh? I mean yeah some good ones but overall not to exciting IMO. What would you guys recommend from it?

    I just bought my tickets!

    My girlfriend and I don't know too much about it and was hoping some veterans could give us some info.

    Firstly what are the major differences between Coachella and OSL? Amount of people? Size? General attitudes? Weather, etc. Even just a few general things you like about OSL would help just so we know what we're getting into. Also curious on food prices, is it similar to Coachellas $7-$9 mediocre meals? Alcohol prices?

    first off with food, i'd argue that a lot of it is much better than coachella's, for about the same price

    Expect cold weather and the food is delicious. Also, expect the place to be super overcrowded. (or feel like it)

    Its not Coachella. Sound systems suck, the crowd sucks , you see half the bands youd see at Coachella. It costs the same. Basically you get great food and beer at expensive prices in a cool park setting. Calm down or you will be pissed, The sound is atrocous and the fans are the worst ive seen at ANY music fest. I'm talking chatting about how much they like sigur ros while sigur ros is fucking playing. Worst fest crowd ever. people sneak in, its crowded as shit. Sorry to all the OSL fan but it is not worth the cost unless you are a local. Sorry to rain on your parade but this is honesty.

    I would argue that Lollapalooza is worse as far as the crowd goes. To play off roboto's example while at OSL you hear people talking about Sigur Ros during Sigur Ros, at Lolla you would hear people talking about their Wednesday night at the local bar and oblivious to the fact that a music fest is going on. More stoned folks than drunks at OSL and stoners aren't as loud and obnoxious. I would agree that the sound isn't so great and it will feel crowded and you will do a lot more walking.

    roboto isn't wrong. I enjoy it despite the flaws.

    Hate to say it but most of what Roboto says here is pretty spot on. I go every year, and every year I keep thinking Superfly will make the necessary changes to improve the fest. But they don't. It's still a great time, but its best to know what you're getting into ahead of time. The absolute worst part is the sound, if they could just turn it up you wouldn't hear all of the idiots constantly talking about how organic everything is, and how they can't believe somebody would step on their precious blanket. Man, SF people are the worst festival goers on the planet!! Even worse than the Sahara bros we deal with every year.

    In conclusion, the food and drink is great, the city itself is a blast and the lineup is very strong. But the sound, the over crowdedness due to people laying out their fucking blankets, and the people in general that never shut the fuck up are awful!!

    Some things aren't as good as Coachella. Others are better. But they're completely different festivals, so stop comparing and just go have a good time.

    My only significant complaint about OSL last year (my first, as an eight year Coachella vet) was that people don't dance enough. And that's their problem, not mine.

    People don't dance enough at Coachella either. I don't really give a shit either about people not dancing(and if you say sahara, stop, that isn't dancing anymore it's fist pumping). What I hated at Coachella the last two years wasn't people not dancing, it was those same people pointing and laughing at people who were dancing. It happened to me several times, so I went over and grabbed them and made them dance(some times it worked, other times people got pissed off).

    I would have a better time if it didn't feel as crowded and the sound was better.

    Id say the sound was just as bad at Coachella this year, as it was at OSL last. The sound at OSL is entirely dependent on your placement, and just like any fest, the best sound and vast majority of passionate fans are up close. I went for the first time last year, and spent a good portion of the first day finding quality sound spots, and was good to go the rest of the weekend. Its a little bit colder, and more people just hanging out and getting baked. I dont know what this dance talk is all about, maybe I'm the one being pointed at, but when I'm at festivals I'm there to have a good time. Talking during a set is far more annoying than dancing, and we all know there's no shortage of that. Food and deserts are top notch. I dont drink, but my GF and her friends loved the wine and beer. My only complaint.... if it is going to be as crowded as it is, can we please get some video screens on the other stages?
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    It doesn't cost the same though. I paid over $100 less for passes than I did for Coachella.

    Plus I don't have to pay for a place to stay for OSL so I'll be spending hundreds less. (Cool story).

    You dingbats keep suggesting that the majority of the crowd at OSL is made up of actual SF residents and not the outlying cities.
