Outside Lands brings light to the end of the tunnel. Hipsters everywhere go to Golden Gate Park for the ultimate music festival of the summer. It is the three-days that people spend all three months of summer waiting for.
Over the three days, the stage held an extensive amount of talent, featuring bands from Phoenix to Vampire Weekend. My favorite band that played was definitely the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Pilar O’Connor ’15 exclaims “It was so cool seeing an actual rock band live and experiencing their classic hits like "Under the Bridge" and "Can't Stop" in person!” The broad spectrum ranging from distinguished acts (Paul McCartney) to more modest unacclaimed bands (The Soft White Sixties) introduced new bands to many of the audience members. O’Connor ’15 explains, “Another band I really enjoyed we're the Rudimentals. I didn't know of them before but I just happened to sit down and listen to their whole show. It was completely filled with good energy and good music.” Zoe Wong ’15 admits, “I was lucky enough to be front row for Vampire Weekend and Red Hot Chile Pepper, and the energy of both audiences was something I’ll never forget.”
Despite what row you ended up in, I think many of the festival-goers are still in shock. Caitlyn Cournale ’15 explains, “It was crazy to think that the actual Paul McCartney played in Golden Gate Park.”
