One of the downsides of a music festival is that you can’t see everything. Sometimes dueling headliners can make a tough decision, but this year’s Friday night lineup at Outside Lands proved particularly vexing.
Aside from the beautiful weather that actually felt like summer, the main talking point of the day seemed to be that Phoebe Bridgers and SZA, two of the weekend’s most anticipated performers, were booked at nearly identical times on the Twin Peaks and Lands. Final steps. Discussions of the scheduling conflict could be heard in the queue at the entrance to the festival, and naturally people took to Twitter to express their frustration.
