It’s always bittersweet when Outside Lands finally releases the daily schedule. On one hand, you finally get to start planning your perfect festival experience. On the other, you have to take a good hard look at your life and make some tough choices.
I started checking the schedule this morning and Friday alone is giving me enough “FOMO” to last a lifetime. Discussing with a friend we both agreed that with all the talent on Friday and Saturday, we are all in for some very tough choices.
For example, here are some choices on Friday:
- Ra Ra Riot or Wet?
- St Lucia or Poliça or Foals? (This is a serious WTF for me)
- Miike Snow or Tokimonsta or Thomas Jack?
- Duran Duran or Grimes!?!
- LCD Sound System or Beach House or Hiatus Kaiyote?
Bittersweet. At least you can take some solace in the fact that you were probably going to lose your friends in the first 30 minutes inside the festival and miss half the acts you wanted to see anyway. You are going to have a great time so don’t sweat it too much.
