Outside Lands Day 1: Women Rock, Plus Foster, Phish And MGMT (page 2)
Not to be upstaged by the ladies of the festival, bands like Foster The People, MGMT and Phish wowed fans with epic sets full of feel-good songs that kept crowds moving.
Los Angeles-based band [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Foster The People[/lastfm] easily drew one of the biggest crowds of the entire day. And with good reason. The indie-pop group’s single “Pumped Up Kicks” skyrocketed them to music superstardom, making them one of the most anticipated artists on this year’s OSL lineup.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]MGMT[/lastfm] performed a shockingly normal set at Outside Lands. Whether it’s some crazy outfit or a shoe getting thrown onstage, this band always seems to have people talking. However, their OSL set was refreshingly tame. There’s no denying that their performance was impeccable. Tracks like “Electric Feel” and “Time To Pretend” had people endlessly grooving in front of the main stage.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Phish[/lastfm] fans jammed out to the psychedelic sounds of the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Trey Anastasio[/lastfm]-led band for an astonishing three and a half hours. The legendary group performed two back-to-back headlining sets much to the delight of dedicated fans and festival goers. A sea of people swayed back and forth, almost in unison, as Phish closed out the first night of the festival on the main stage.
On that note, let’s get set for Outside Lands day 2!
