Outside Lands 2017 Friday pics (Gorillaz, Fleet Foxes, Belle & Sebastian, more)
Outside Lands kicked off its 2017 edition in San Francisco, CA’s Golden Gate Park on Friday (8/11). Queens of the Stone Age cancelled their set at this weekend’s festival due to an injury, and attendees were further disappointed by A Tribe Called Quest first delaying their Friday set until Saturday because of “unforseen travel issues,” then cancelling altogether. Saturday night’s cancellation came half an hour before ATCQ’s rescheduled set was to start, and “set off a wave of disappointed groans amid the already packed crowd that gathered around the eastern stage,” according to SF Gate.
There was plenty to offset the disappointment of missing ATCQ, though, like a guest filled headlining set from Gorillaz. Alt-J, Fleet Foxes (who recently played two nights in Brooklyn), Future Islands, Belle & Sebastian, Sleigh Bells, Little Dragon (who will be in NYC for a few shows soon), Noname, Tove Lo, Henry Rollins, Dr. Octagon, Hamilton Leithauser, Hundred Waters, and others were also on hand for Friday at Outside Lands. Check out pictures in the gallery above.
Outside Lands continued on Saturday; pictures are HERE.
