The first day of Outside Lands has come to an end. The weather, which changed from sunshine to fog in a matter of minutes, kept festival-goers on their toes and probably provided a cold night for some costumed attendees. But the overall atmosphere was festive and festive, with some longtime Outside Lands fans crying.
One of the most difficult choices in the festival series was Friday night’s main name. Given the distance between the stages, it was almost impossible to split the difference and capture a few minutes each of The Strokes, Kaytranada or Tyler, The Creator. Those who chose Tyler were treated to a hurricane by a show complete with explosive fireworks and a speedboat on stage rocking on hydraulics.
