So OutKast is in Toronto on August 4th, so let's wildly speculate where they will go next!
Check out my concert photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/ameeps/
1 - Arcade Fire - Forum

I'm not very good at the festival guessing game but these are the current summer tour dates for Arctic Monkeys...pretty sizable gap right around Outside Lands. They also have a handful of dates with Tame Impala...now wouldn't that be amazing?!

Tame Impala is probably not going to be there as they played the main stage two years ago. Not a good set, unfortunately, as the sound was pretty terrible and the lead singer did not seem into it.
Well the Bonnaroo lineup just punched me in the face
Also everyone take note that Cut Copy was billed higher than Chromeo on the bonnaroo lineup
Adding these artists to the "realistic" wishlist:
Chance the Rapper
Lake Street Dive
Elton John might be a nice "4th Headliner"
Would like to see Bobby Womack from the Roo lineup at OSL
My baseless, useless guesses on what overlaps from Bonnaroo:
The John Butler Trio
The Naked and Famous
Carolina Chocolate Drops
9/12: Shifted @ Mercer
9/24 - 28: Decibel Festival
10/3-5: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival
10/4: Ought @ BoH
10/5: The War on Drugs, Cass McCombs @ The Fillmore
10/18-19: Treasure Island Music Festival
I'm really surprised Bonnaroo re-booked Kanye after the 2008 debacle. I was one of the few that waited until 4:30am for his less-than-stellar performance (that I ended up walking away from after 15 minutes because it was THAT BAD). At that point, having previously witnessed his selfish 2006 performance in which he again showed up late and performed half an hour into Sigur Ros' set, I was sticking around just to witness the meltdown, and, at least in that respect, I wasn't disappointed.
Not even considering his numerous PR issues, I have zero respect for the guy. I pray he doesn't come to OSL.
I think it's time Crystal Castles make their debut Outside Lands appearance =>
9/18- CHVRCHES, Fox Theater
9/20 & 21- Beyond Wonderland
9/22 & 23- Katy Perry, SAP Center
10/2- Savoy, Indy
10/3-10/5- TBD Festival
10/10- Snoop Dogg, Shoreline
10/18-10/19- Treasure Island Festival
10/14- Kill the Noise, Catalyst
10/24- Little Dragon, Fox Theater
11/1 & 11/2- Day of the Dead Festival
11/6- Bassnectar, Montbleu
11/7- Bassnectar, Memorial Auditorium
11/9- Hardwell, Bill Graham
11/10- Foster The People, Menorial Auditorium
11/25- London Grammar, Fox Theater
I don't think 'Ye would be a fit for OSL, but he is pretty damn big in the Bay. getting him & Kendrick would expose the Fest to a whole nother market a la Kanye/Wiz at Coachella in 2011.
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
Lol expose the fest to a new market , the I listen to the radio market. Everyone knows Kanye there's no exposing anything .White kids who like Kanye , same fucking people.
Spicy pie is mainstream shit.
"ain't no thang but a chicken wang"
In other news, the Phantogram show at the Fox last night was fucking sick.
^ And what does that have to do with OSL?
Who do we think are the potential headliners this year? Here is a list of some possibilities, but I haven't checked all of their tour schedules to know if its possible. I'm not using any repeat headliners because I don't think there will be:
Elton John (more likely now that he is a Roo headliner)
Bruce (hasn't announced west coast dates for the 2014 tour yet)
Outkast (playing 40 festivals and haven't announced a Bay Area date yet)
Green Day (sticking with the local theme that OSL likes aka Metallica, Further, or Neil Young)
Prince (who knows with the purple freak, but its not completely crazy since he's been active lately)
Mumford & Sons (Were going to headline Roo and could bring in the younger crowd)
Coldplay (playing SXSW this year so maybe they have some new material out and will be touring)
Kanye West (headlining Roo, biggest name in hip hop right now)
The Killers (just throwing them in the mix)
The Cure (see the Killers)
Tool (have headlined Roo, are playing shows this year)
Black Sabbath (headlined Lolla recently)
Drake (Pretty huge right now)
Eminem (playing Squamish same weekend so will be on the west coast)
What are some other headliner possibilities? If we get two of the top three, that would make me a very happy camper and justify the price of the ticket alone.
why does everyone always throw Prince in there? every year he is brought up, yet every year there's absolutely no reason to ever suspect he will play.
