Outside Lands opens its fourth year running with a diverse line-up few other festivals could match. Demonstrating three different takes on rock music, [mp3com-artist]Phish[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Muse[/mp3com-artist], and [mp3com-artist]Arcade Fire[/mp3com-artist] headline Friday, Saturday, and Sunday respectively, following 20+ acts that range from R&B (the goddess [mp3com-artist]Erykah Badu[/mp3com-artist]) and dubstep ([mp3com-artist]Eskmo[/mp3com-artist]) to indie rock ([mp3com-artist]Best Coast[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Beirut[/mp3com-artist]), trip-hop ([mp3com-artist]Phantogram[/mp3com-artist]) and dance ([mp3com-artist]Major Lazer[/mp3com-artist]). Suffice it to say, if Outside Lands were a person, she would have that iPod whose shuffle could make everyone at a house party smile.
It only helps the festival’s cause that it brings gifts beyond music: Outside Lands is more than just live music, it is also a festival of art, food, and wine. If there was ever a more winning combination than this quadfecta, we as mere mortals have yet to experience it.
And speaking of music, you can download songs from [mp3com-artist]OK Go[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Deadmau5[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Best Coast[/mp3com-artist] and more on MP3.com all week long. We’ve also got a few tracks that will ONLY be available for 24 hours, including [mp3com-artist]MGMT[/mp3com-artist] (“Brian Eno” on Aug. 9) and [mp3com-artist]Beirut[/mp3com-artist] (“East Harlem” on Aug. 11).
All week, MP3.com shines a Spotlight on Outside Lands. The music, food, wine, and arts festival takes place August 12th – 14th at the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA.
