There was a mellow beginning and a repeatedly "Bloody" end to the first day of the lucky seventh edition of Outside Lands, the festival so beloved by San Francisco's Golden Gate Park that organizers Another Planet have a contract to host it there until at least 2021. Don't worry, though, it wasn't real blood -- just an attempt by Kanye West to extract some from the crowd by playing his current favorite song by himself over and over.

...8:49 PM: Yeezus is in control now, and he stops the song "Power" dead in its tracks. "I like that song and all," he notes, taking off his couture face mask, "but I want to play a little of the last song now." He instructs the crowd to make "circles" so people can mosh when the beat to "Blood On The Leaves" drops. "This ain't no radio shit," he says. "This ain't no concierge, maitre d' music, trying to sound as smooth as possible." [Billboard]

Day one of Outside Lands in San Francisco kicked off a loaded weekend of music in Golden Gate Park. Friday featured sets from Kanye West (who played 'Blood On the Leaves' three times), Arctic Monkeys, Disclosure, Tegan and Sara, Holy Ghost!, Run the Jewels, Phosphorescent, Mikal Cronin and plenty more. Like Kim Kardashian, BV was on hand, and we've got day one pics in this post, artists that joined us in the Toyota Soundwave tent included.

UPDATE: Day 2 pics HERE. Day 3 coming soon. More of day 1 below...

Why do musicians at events like this have to dress like they are mentally retarded.

This event draws such an Orange County crowd to the Bay Area. The 5 must have been full of SUVs Monday.

What's with these portraits? I've seen them on a bunch of sites already.

lens vignetting, how edgy! some of these photos are actually decent, don't go and blow it by putting shitty effects on your pics.
