Outside Lands Music Festival 2013
by Dan Weiss | August 9, 2013
San Francisco's Outside Lands Music Festival pulled in the mother of all headliners for its fifth incarnation this year: Sir McCartney himself, with supporting biggies like Willie Nelson and the always festival-ready Phoenix. The reunions alone are impressive, from lost, harmonizing hacky-sack rappers Jurassic 5 to pop gods Hall & Oates to the almost retired Nine Inch Nails. Every attendee should be bowled over by something. Indie's usual suspects are set for the bill: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, Matt and Kim, etc. But that's no reason not to check out the one-of-a-kind pipes of Sri Lankan blues folkie Bhi Bhiman or the Black Keys-produced Afro-blues-rock of Bombino. With so much to do and see, use this playlist, featuring nearly every act on this year's bill, as a handy quick-reference guide.
