Grandma slow down before you give yourself a heart attack ack ack ack ack ack
type us a rant you're the troll man
type us a rant tonight
well we're all in the mood for some jackassery
and you've got us feeling mad
I am going to derail this mindless bashing of the sweet saint Billy Joel and throw a couple more bands out there.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
Lake Street Dive
Still waiting for the FMQB Triple A conference artists to come out. It happens in Boulder the same weekend as OSL and usually has ~5 artists that do both.
Currently Robert Plant is listed as a likely OSL candidate. Given he is playing in the UK on August 9th (the middle day of the fest), I think we can (sadly) assume he won't be playing. http://www.robertplant.com/#road
Santana is also on the first page, but he has show dates on the other side of the country on the 8th and 10th with Rod Stewart. https://tickets.santanafanclub.com/
Maybe there is something I am missing with Broken Bells, but wouldn't the fact that they are playing Squamish (which has the same exact dates as OSL) make them less likely? They also play Oakland in April.
Those dates do eliminate Robert Plant and Santana. The facts you listed about broken Bells make them more likely, not less. It means they are on the west coast during the fest and are playing an APE venue far enough in advance that a return trip 4 months later isn't out of the question. Typically you see quite a few OSL bands play the Fox and Independent in March and April.
Broken Bells are playing Saturday at Squamish Festival.
I was saying boourns
AC/DC and Steely Dan? Why not just get a Don Henley project on the poster so my dad can bring his R/V, his fourth wife, and make a day out of the damn thing?
Think we can officially rule out Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, which is a real shame, as they have two San Francisco dates in July. We can also rule out, on the same basis, probably whichever of Warpaint, Reggie Watts, Mark Lanegan, Nicole Atkins, Kurt Vile and Devendra Banhart is supporting them. Kurt Vile would also be ruled out on the basis he played last year - at his curmudgeonly best too.
Coldplay new album coming out in May possible headliner??
This pretty much nails it. He's one of the worst musicians of my lifetime. "We Didn't Start The Fire" was played over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over when I would go with my parent's to one of their friend's houses when I was younger. His voice sucks and so does his persona. Fuck Billy Joel.
Luckily... Warpaint won't be playing the SF show with Nick Cave... so I still hope they'll make it to the festival.
who thinks The Gaslight Anthem or The Killers are a possibility?
I hope neither!
I'd say that doesn't just make them possible, but it is likely that at least one of them will be on the lineup.
I think Outkast is looking more and more likely for Outside Lands.
They don't have anything booked yet for August 8-10.
Here is their up-to-date festival tour schedule:
Apr 11: Coachella

July 13: North Sea Jazz Festival (Netherlands)
July 18-20: Forecastle Festival (Louisville, KY)
Aug 3: OVO Festival (Toronto, ON)
Sept 4-7: Bestival (Isle of Wright, UK)
Here are the other festivals going on at the same time as OSL (I bolded the ones that might be a possibility):
Oya Festival - Norway - lineup already out
MEO Sudeste - Portugal - some of the lineup already out
WE Fest - Minnesota - Country music festival
Cambridge/Wilderness/Boomtown/Bloodstock - UK Festivals - they're already playing in the UK in July & September.
Way Out West - Sweden - lineup already out
Edmonton Folk - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - lineup already out
Shambhala Festival - Nelson, BC (Canada) - lineup out March 15th
Squamish Festival - Squamish, BC (Canada) - lineup already out
Taubertal Fest - Germany - I don't know...?
Regina Folk Fest - Saskatchewan, Canada - no lineup yet but I don't think they fit
I'm not sure how accurate I am on some of these, and I certainly may have left some stuff out, so anybody that knows other things about these festivals please weigh in. Paging Bumblebee...
Nice work, Iced.
I think the question is will Outkast head to Europe (Bestival) directly from the east coast (OVO in Toronto), or will they head west through the US in August (maybe Lolla, maybe other fests) before doubling back to get to Europe. But they are bouncing around to Europe and back in July so they don't have issues with travelling. It also still leaves the possibility of them doing Rock the Bells and not OSL as well.
I really hope they are at OSL, but they might legitimately be playing Chella and a bunch of upstart/smaller fests in the states (not including Summerfest) while skipping Roo, Lolla, and OSL. And that would be a damn shame.
I think the fact that Big Boi has a relationship with OSL is a noteworthy. I also think he was fucking rad on Twin Peaks in 2012, but could it be too soon to bring Ms. Jackson back to GGP?
Rock The Bells SF is in Sept I think. When do we usually get a lineup for that? Probably after the OSL lineup announcement, right?
Lykke Li announced show at ACE LA on 5/19...
