Only a week after the lineup for Outside Lands 2014 was released, we've got the daily lineups. Maybe because general admission tickets sold out in a record 24 hours? Anyway, single-day tickets go onsale tomorrow, Thursday, April 17, at 10 a.m. Expect them to go briskly. Here's a preview: Friday, Aug. 8, is Kanye and Arctic Monkeys. Saturday, Aug. 9, is Tom Petty and Macklemore. Sunday, Aug. 10, is the Killers and Tiësto. Below are the full daily lineups as they stand so far. Which day do you think is the best?

"They say the S.F. music scene is dead," reads the poster for a new one-day music festival in June. "Let's prove them wrong." To that end, local music blog the Bay Bridged and S.F. new arrivals the Down and Outlaws are throwing a mini rock festival at Thee Parkside called the Not Dead Yet Fest, with a bill of mostly up-and-coming local acts, including notables like Annie Girl and the Flight, Cellar Doors, and Ash Reiter.

Woodsist Festival Announces 2014 Lineup and Dates

Categories: Music Festivals

White Fence at Woodsist in 2012.
The (((FolkYEAH!)))-presented Woodsist Festival -- perhaps the best reason ever to sit on the lawn of the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur for two days -- just announced the lineup for this year's sure-to-sell-out event. The big news is the move to the middle of a week in August this year, after trying a Sunday and Monday in mid-September in 2013. We think that's smart for daylight and warmth, though it may mean more competition when it comes to finding a place to stay in Big Sur. But as for performers at the annual gathering of cool kids, well, the bill for Woodsist's fifth year looks a fair bit like other recent lineups (Woods, Real Estate, Little Wings) with a few notable additions, like Angel Olsen and Kevin Morby.

Handicapping the Outside Lands 2014 Lineup: Who's Going to Play?

Categories: Music Festivals

Outside Lands season is coming. Festival organizers said today that they'll announce details on early bird (read: pre-lineup announcement) tickets next week, and we should have a lineup out sometime around mid-April. But just because we don't know everything yet doesn't mean we can't start to speculate on who'll be playing Golden Gate Park this Aug. 8-10. Festival mascot Ranger Dave has already leaked some performers on social media, and online forums are rife with educated guesses about the lineup for 2014. Here, we look at many of the rumors and guesses to try to figure out this year's lineup a little in advance.

Coming to a Napa music festival near you.
After a rocky start last year, Bottle Rock Napa Valley is coming back in the hands of new owners this year -- and judging by today's lineup announcement, they're doing at least something right. Festival headliners for the May 30-June 1 event include OutKast, Eric Church, and the Cure. Here's the lineup as announced today -- though more additions are coming:

OutKast at Outside Lands Is Looking Pretty Unlikely

outkast_7.jpg
Many of us had hoped, with Atlanta hip-hop duo OutKast reuniting for some 40 festival dates this year, that San Francisco's Outside Lands would be one of them. After all, why should Coachella be the only major California festival to get an OutKast performance?

As of today, though, OutKast has announced half of those festival dates. And unfortunately, they don't look encouraging for an Outside Lands appearance.

First City Festival Will Return to Monterey; Announces August Dates

Categories: Music Festivals


BottleRock Napa Valley wasn't the only major new Northern California festival to launch last year. In Monterey, the folks behind Coachella launched First City Festival, named in honor of its history as a city of firsts for California. The two-day event drew more than 20,000 people to catch an indie-focused lineup at the Monterey Fairgrounds that included Passion Pit, MGMT, Beach House, the Hold Steady, and Neko Case. Not every festival makes it around for a second time, but organizers have just announced that after a successful inaugural outing, First City will be returning in 2014.
