Welp, the FAQ says a "limited" number of lockers are available to reserve online, with more available in person during the fest. I hope this means the ratio favors the in-person reservations. I have Friday off, and planned to be inside early anyway (why waste a day off twiddling my thumbs at home?)... if it doesn't work out, that just means I have to carry a small backpack around during the fest, which ain't no thang til the crowds get busy. *crosses fingers*
I highly recommend heading to the lockers immediately upon entering into the Festival Friday day. Last year, the locker line for those w/o reservations was murderously long.

I have no doubt. My plan would be to make a quick pitstop by beerlands first so I have something to keep me company and my thirst quenched. But ya, definitely looking to offload some shoulder baggage before getting the festival started!
I got a locker last year and only used it once. Its just easier to keep everything in your backpack especially if you are using a blanket. Having to go back and forth to the locker can make you miss parts of sets and was not practical for me and my lady last year.
Also, getting to the fest early on Friday is a strong move. Nothing like having the run of the place. Sunday early also is desolate. I was able to stroll all the way to the front of the main stage to see Charles Bradley and Dumpstaphunk in previous years.
I got a locker last year as well, and it was the only year I got one. It was primarily a convenience piece; something I could store my backpack in when I didn't want to carry it, and I could conveniently visit on trips between the main stage and anywhere else on the festival grounds. and after I snuck a substantial amount of booze in on day 1, it became home base for a refill In all, it's not a big loss if I can't get one. Hell, this year it's the price of a few beers, so the argument could go either way. Not a significant factor in my overall experience.
Lockers are available just FYI

anyone know the password for the death cab night show?
Woohoo! Locker secured!
Sorry Fur, passwords haven't been sent out yet. Not for me, anyway.
Ranger Dave just tweeted the availability of lockers, moments after I purchased mine:
thanks so much for the quick replies! it was my understanding that the passwords were supposed to be sent out already... if you guys get them, could you please provide me with the death cab one? not going to outside lands, but i would like to catch them at the independent.
John Vanderslice added as an opener for the DCFC night show.
Does anybody want to take another shot at a Clashfinder prediction? I see nickntto's.
Moving to the Bay Area next week and not going to Outside Lands, but really interested in DCFC. I'll gladly buy you a drink. Anybody wanna help this girl out in getting tickets? PM me!
+ me on last.fm!
As for the lockers; $10 a day for a medium locker is fine for most people's needs, though it was $5 for the whole weekend last year. If people don't rent them, the prices will go back down. The large ones are huge, you could fit a 80L backpack in there.
They are available online - it's far better to just book online and skip the mammoth queue, even if you intend getting there early.

No password for me yet. Sounds like nobody on this forum has theirs so far. Which is strange, ranger Dave explicitly said they would be sent yesterday.
Me and my girlfriend will not be attending anymore and have two tickets for face value, please pm me if you would like that. We just need to get rid of these before it's too late.
The Superjam's ticket page is still up and showing all the correct information (presale, general onsale times, etc). I guess I'll try it in the next 45 minutes and see what happens.

DCFC tix purchased! Thank you most generous password-sharers!
I'm in for DCFC as well! I'm glad that there's an opener cause I didn't want to leave Kanye super early.
DCFC and Superjam locked in! Gonna be a solid weekend... I can sleep Saturday night.
