It’s been a few weeks since I first talked about it. The Outside Lands Festival (no, not…) line-up has been announced and as I mentioned tickets go on sale soon. Everyone has commented on this already.
Here are some of the bands I might actually like to see that are in the line-up:
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals
Broken Social Scene
Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings
But tickets are $225 (+ absurd ticketmaster fees)–Scott made a good point that you might need an extra job to pay for that pretty hefty fee–and I’ve made known my preference for venue-based festivals over giant outdoor festivals. I know I sound like an ornery old man in saying this, but I’d prefer going to see just the bands I want to see in a small venue rather than with thousands of people while sitting or standing miles from the stage.
