It’s been awhile burrito eaters, but we are back with some good content to feast on. First things first: Outside Lands.
Outside Lands 2013 was definitely the best OSL we’ve had yet. The festival was well organized and the line up were fantastic. Great weather and not too crowded. Good view from every angle and of course the food, art and extra stages/domes were all fantastic. Well done, Golden Gate Park. Check out the photo gallery from 2013.
The Heineken dome was jam poacked this year, naturally with EDM as popular as ever; it was like an EDM club in the middle of the park. The beautiful thing about OSL for us locals (those of us that don’t take flight for the weekend to avoid the crowds and mayhem) is that you arrive with one group of friends and leave with a completely different group. It was great to bounce between groups of friends and enjoy the great music with a variety of people. My cousin and I are now managing Celia’s by the Beach on 40149 Judah. We ran into many customers, friends, family and employees. It was great to see everyone outside of the restaurant and taquerias enjoying good music and culture. We even had a great little fiesta at the bar Saturday night after Phoenix and Nine Inch Nails.
Tips for next year:
- Get there early Friday to enjoy all the art exhibits with our any crowds or lines.
- Brink a few layers of clothing for night.
- Bring your own water bottle – there are refill stations.
- Designate a meet up spot for certain artist if you end up getting seperated from your group, cell phone service can be tricky. Windmills or a speaker cluster is good. Having a marker is always good.
Our favorites from 2013:
- Paul McCartney
- Willie Nelson
- Trombone Shorty
