Graphic: How Does Outside Lands Compare to the World's Biggest Music Festivals?
Lots of people, including us, think that this past year's Outside Lands Music Festival was the best one yet. But how does the four-year-old event in S.F.'s Golden Gate Park compare to the world's biggest music festivals?
Hint: We have much better wine, and we care about Foursquare a lot more than most.
That's at least the perspective given by this fascinating infographic from the folks over at Sonos. There's a crop above; check out the whole thing after the jump.
Here's the whole graphic, (and here's a link to a very large version):
Things that strike us:
- That Outside Lands drew 180,000 people with 71 acts on the bill, while Bonnaroo (which is put on by the same company that co-produces Outside Lands) drew 80,000 with more than twice as many acts (175).
- That Outside Lands has the second-highest number of Foursquare check-ins behind only the much-larger Lollapalooza.
- That, as Digital Music News point out, the largest summer music festival in the world apparently takes place in Budapest. (Huh?)
So -- anyone wanna go to Hungary next year?
