Parking can be a real pain in SF, depending on where you're staying, and can get expensive. I'd consider this option.
Megabus roundtrip LA from/to SF useful. One way rates are ranging from $23-$41 during OSL weekend, depending on time and date.

Just going to jump right in here, out of the blue, and try revamp some underrated artists discussions. Heading to Outside Lands for the first time from CO, but have been to Bonnaroo in '12 and went to GovBall earlier this summer. Top 5, must see non-headliners are:
1) Foals (unreal rock show)
2) Rhye (the hype is warranted)
3) Twenty One Pilots (these guys are intriguing, great lyrics and good dance beats)
4) Atlas Genius (want to see how their great album translates live)
5) Midi Matilda (awesome local SF band, dance party)
HM) Yeasayer, Lone Bellow, Foy Vance, Tallest Man on Earth, MS MR
Also is it just me, or did the Wild Feathers just get added to Sunday without a peep? Saw them open for Ryan Bingham, solid southern rock act.
Based on some historical schedules, it seems like J5 will play on the Sutro, up against the opener for Phoenix (Grizzly Bear?), in between the YYYs and NIN sets.

Great list, Twenty one pilots is definitely in the top for me and Foals is up there too. THe only one i'm not too familiar with is Rhye but I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about them. I'd also have to add Gary Clark Jr., Tallest Man on Earth, and MS MR to my list
This one got me thinking, What's everyone's Top 5 bands that you want to see. Mine are:
1.) Twenty One Pilots
2.) Head and the Heart
3.) The National
4.) Vampire Weekend
5.) Tallest Man on Earth
1) Paul McCartney
2) King Tuff
3) Yeah Yeah Yeahs
4) Kurt Vile & The Violators
5) Dillon Francis
is anyone else leaving early sunday to watch breaking bad

2) The National with Kronos Quartet
3) Yeah Yeah Yeahs
4) Vampire Weekend
5) Gary Clark Jr. (always rips it)
No D'Angelo only because I bet he goes up against Macca and as such I'm not getting my hopes up. Seeing Yeasayer night show so I'll probably skip them at OSL, but otherwise they'd be on here. Unlike Coachella where I mostly get excited about Mojave type acts, I think I'll be at the main stage for much of OSL.
2) The Head and the Heart
4) The National
5) Vampire Weekend
at this point ive heard too much about the national to keep ignoring them. wheres the best place to start?
1. The National
4. Hall & Oates
I hadn't considered the Yeasayer -> Band of Horses -> National -> Macca scenario, but that'd be pret-ty-cool. I'm also starting to convince myself YYY's -> Phoenix -> NIN is a possibility, having remembered that Beck/Foo Fighters/Neil Young had the same billing last year. Could Jurassic 5 be the counter-programming to NIN?
They likely won't get 20 songs at OSL, but should get at least an hour. Also, agreed with travelfan; I think their most recent is their best, though that's possibly because it's the freshest in my ears.
1. Paul McCartney
2. Grizzly Bear
3. Yeah Yeah Yeahs
4. The Tallest Man on Earth
Also really looking forward to Phoenix, Yeasayer, and NIN.
Oh shoot, I meant Alligator instead of Boxer, although I personally like Boxer better. Whatever.
I think the argument for starting with Trouble Will Find Me is that it is their sound perfected. Small portions of their earlier releases can verge on being overly maudlin and occasionally shmaltzy, which is easily forgiable if you like their sound as a whole, but that has been a constant criticism of the band. There isn't one section of Trouble Will Find Me that hits that pitfall, so if you dig that sound, go explore Boxer/Alligator and you'll get it in a bigger context. My personal take.
And for the record, I think my three favorites on Trouble are Don't Swallow The Cap, This is the Last Time, and Sea of Love. Maybe Fireproof and Demons too. Just an all around fantastic record.
UHM, The Wild Feathers and Social Studies are on the lineup now? I fucking adore Social Studies... but is that just night shows or...?
Update: Just checked Social Studies twitter and they'll be playing the festival on Saturday. FUCK YES.
