SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Outside Lands hit a snag on the first day of the festival’s tenth-anniversary edition when hip-hop legends A Tribe Called Quest had to postpone their highly-anticipated set due to travel issues.
One of the festival’s Twitter accounts first posted about the rescheduled set shortly before 5 p.m. Friday.
The group was scheduled to perform on the main Lands End stage at 6:15 p.m.
Travel delays for members of the group had already impacted an earlier appearance on the GastroMagic Stage featuring Tribe member Jarobi and chef Chris Cosentino, an appearance scheduled for slightly before 3 p.m. Jarobi finally arrived at the stage an hour later.
There was no word as to whether members were traveling from different cities. Outside Lands organizers shuffled the main stage schedule, adding electro-pop act RAC and pushing back Little Dragon’s scheduled appearance to 6 p.m.
A Tribe Called Quest has been rescheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m. on the Twin Peaks stage.
This wasn’t the first issue to surface with one of the bigger bands on the Outside Lands bill this year. On July 31, the festival announced that Saturday main stage act Queens of the Stone Age would not be performing due to an injury to a band member. Alternative rockers Cage the Elephant were brought in to fill their spot on the schedule.
