mam, we're waxing nostalgic over the late oughts now?
Just got my 3 day pass! My first OSL! Gonna be a good time!
FYI - Ranger Dave is full of shit. I remember 2012 he said basically the same thing and it did not sell out until end of July.
If this lineup sells out this soon then (i) the economy is doing very well and (ii) festival popularity has hit its peak
or most likely (iii) i am completely out of touch with what constitutes as popular music these days
bonnaroo made the same claims in 2012 and 2013. 2012 didn't sell out at all and 2013 sold out 3 days before the festival. it's just a tactic to get people to buy out of fear they'll miss their chance later on.
Wow, good thing I decided to make some crazy money arrangements to get mine an hour ago.
Next up, boardies telling us why sold out really doesn't mean sold out.ranger dave @sfoutsidelands 10m
ranger dave is officially sold out of 3-day ga tickets. don't say he didn't warn you. a limited number of 3-day vip are still on sale.
wowza impressive. i'll eat crow. i am completely out of touch with popular music.
Aw man, I was hoping to buy a single day ticket to see Kanye.
I just made bank selling my tickets. For all you lineup haters - you should do the same. $200 profit for buying some Leisure Beaver tickets.
Anyone ever buy a weekend pass through stubhub within the week of? I really want to go, for the undercards. But didn't think it would sell out this quick. Hoping the week of I might be able to get some dirt cheap passes or something.
If anybody has an extra ticket they're selling (face value + i'll pay for shipping if you have to ship it) I will buy it in an instant. Didn't expect it to sell out this quickly, so i'm out of a ticket. This will hopefully be my 5th Outside Lands in a row. Help a boardie out

75,000 capacity in 2014, which was a 5-10k bump from last year?
^Yes, an increase of 10k from 2013.
In December of 2012, the Fest's permits were renewed for an additional 8 years. At this time, the approved capacity was increased to 75k. However, in 2013, the promoters elected to keep capacity at 65k, which was great. If this year's capacity has been increased to 75k, it will be yet another strike against 2014s fest.
12/16 HAERTS @ the Rickshaw Stop (?)
02/07 London Grammar @ the Fox Theatre
03/02 Caribou @ The Fillmore (?)
And also WTF, its already sold out? I really think this has be from scalpers. Kinda like how they sold out three Neutral Milk Hotel and Kraftwerk shows at the Fox in the past month, but then you could get half price or less tickets day of on stubhub. Hell, my friend bought a $10 ticket to NMH last night (which by the way was really really good).
If its not scalpers, I really don't understand the buying public. I don't hate the lineup but its objectively the weakest of the past two (2011 wasn't super strong now that I look back at it although Sunday was an amazing day of music). And it sells out in crazy record time. I guess Macklemore and Tiesto are there for a reason and they bring asses in the gate. Who would have thunk it?
