Another Outside Lands Music Festival has come and gone, and it was everything you have come to expect from it: a great, eclectic arrangement of acts on every stage and plenty of immersive experiences to experience to round out the weekend. Main stage headliners such as Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys and Sir Elton John each put on great performances along with a lineup of new and established acts—there was always a compelling performance to see from one of the stages. Also, with good food, growing popularity of Winelands and a new addition of three-hole mini golf in the festival, you are certainly going to have a fun time at this festival.
St Vincent rocked the main stage on day one of Outside Lands. They held it down clad in leather, rocking guitar riffs and awesome vocals.
James Bay had the whole crowd moving at the Sutro stage. His up-tempo style of blues was a welcomed sound to Outside Lands.
Billy Idol proved that true rock & roll has no age. Idol and his entire band captivated the audience with their swagger and a rockin’ performance.
Cold War Kids played a solid set on the main stage. Led by their distinctive and passionate vocals, the band played a great set as the members playfully moved around the stage.
Mumford & Sons put on a roaring close to the first night of Outside Lands. The packed crowd enjoyed a great mix of new and old songs from the angry folk band, which put on a spectacular performance for the crowd in Golden Gate Park.
