Outside Lands, presented by Superfly (Bonnaroo, Googa Mooga, New Orleans Jazz Fest), is one of my favorite festivals of the year. First of all, it’s in SF (never say “San Fran” to locals), one of my favorite cities in the world. Second, the food and wine are absolutely incredible. Third and most important, the lineup always rocks. There are also some bands playing this year that I’ve never seen (White Denim; Honey Island Swamp Band; Portugal, the Man, etc.) and would love to check out.
Total bummer that I can’t be there this year, but I made a custom schedule anyway. This is exactly what I would do, and I am counting on living vicariously through all of you; so go, get weird, and have fun.
