Outside Lands in it's seventh installment has completed it's transformation from a traditional rock and roll festival to a Coachella of Northern California. What used to drive Outside Lands were bands like Pearl Jam, Muse, Furthur, and Radiohead. Today, the headliners can be some of the quietest parts of the night. It's the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) that rules almost all festivals nationwide. Trying to get anywhere even close to Flume, Tiesto or Duck Sauce was virtually impossible. Luckily, the stage presence of those shows are next to nothing (besides some creepy visuals of satan that Boys Noize provided) so you can be standing anywhere with your friends and have a great time. This should be no surprise to anyone who's attended a festival in the past few years. The crowds are demanding dance music and I'm often being told that rock shows are just plain "boring". Whether that has to do with the increased intoxication at these festivals or just a shift in the popularity of EDM is for you to decide.

The beauty of the music festival lies in it's diversity in music. It will always be heavily weighed on what's trending, but you'll never go to a major music festival without classic hip hop, vintage rock and roll, EDM, and sometimes a little country. What has really started to impress me is the increasing number of female led rock groups." [Huffington Post]

Outside Lands closed things out with a bang on Sunday as Danielle Haim played drums with The Killers, Flaming Lips covered the Beatles, Patrick Stewart got drunk, and a whole bunch of other sets happened. Those other day 3 sets included Spoon, Cut Copy, Lykke Li, Jenny Lewis and plenty more. Unfortunately, CHVRCHES were a no-show due to border-crossing issues. Pictures of day 3's fun are in this post. Pics from day 1 are here and pics of day 2 are here.

Like we did at Lollapalooza and on OSL DAY ONE (pics) and OSL DAY TWO (pics), we set up in the Toyota Soundwave tent on the festival grounds. On Sunday the activities there included a live interview with Wayne Coyne and 2nd sets from Hiss Golden Messenger, The Bots and Courtney Barnett. Those pictures are in this post too and continue below.

In related news, Spoon just announced openers for their next NYC show, and we're giving away tickets. You can also read about Spoon's last NYC show, a secret surprise one, HERE.

Wayne is a tool, we all know that by now. The real question is, what the fuck is Drozd thinking?

Posted by Anonymous | August 13, 2014 10:53 PM

Drozd is just having fun and getting paid. Wouldn't you?

When a black guy starts playing rock better than white people you know sh*t is going down.
