Outside Lands opens its fourth year running with a diverse line-up few other festivals could match. Demonstrating three different takes on rock music, Phish, Muse, and Arcade Fire close out Friday, Saturday, and Sunday respectively, following 20+ acts that range from R&B (the goddess Erykah Badu), dubstep (Eskmo), trip-hop (Phantogram), and dance (Major Lazer). Suffice it to say, if Outside Lands were a person, she would have that iPod whose shuffle could make everyone at a given 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.
The Spotlight will run through these non-music, Bay Area treats throughout the week, so keep checking MP3.com as you plan your festival itinerary.
For now, back to what they do best: free music. From today onward, download songs from OK Go, Deadmau5, Best Coast and more. They also have a few tracks that will ONLY be available for 24 hours. Mark your calendars to enjoy as much free Outside Lands music as possible.
