Top Five Reasons Outside Lands Is Better Than Coachella
|Braving 100-degree heat at Coachella.|
1. You're less likely to get a heatstroke at Outside Lands
At the S.F. festival, you don't have to worry about missing favorite bands that are playing earlier in the day while you stay in avoiding heatstroke. We almost passed out watching Neon Indian play at the Outdoor Stage in 102-degree weather on Friday afternoon. Only the strong survive at Coachella. If you can make it throughout the afternoon without spending all of your money on ice-cold water bottles or be brave enough to actually camp out and wake up to inescapable heat, you can do anything.
Bottom line: Coachella has mind-blowing art installations, flawless effects on every stage, flatter ground to walk on, and requires less of a trek to get from stage to stage. But we'll enjoy the mild S.F. summer at Outside Lands over the agonizing heat at Coachella any day.
