[Festival Review] Outside Lands IX : Revisiting the Most Memorable Acts of the Weekend

OSL7In continuing to build on the foundation laid nine years ago, Another Planet Entertainment has once again outdone themselves; the final product being yet another successfully executed Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival. The 2016 version – keen on replicating the successes of previous iterations – was calculated in its approach, careful not to break the trends and quirks that have made it such a mainstay to the community.


Instead, APE kept what has worked and improved upon it; meaning deeper lineups, aesthetically more impressive sound and lighting productions, finally allowing payment via RFID-enabled festival wristbands, and a fair amount of side stages to keep all wandering pseudo-bohemians well occupied. Unfortunately, along with the quality improvements also came a pretty substantial price adjustment – putting on a nationally recognized festival is big business, after all.

Those willing to stomach the uptick were treated to an especially diverse lineup ranging from saxophone playing acts like Kamasi Washington and GRiZ, nostalgia-inducing pop rock outfit Third Eye Blind, platinum (and featureless) hip hop artist J.Cole, EDM prodigy Zedd, the Jack-of-all-trades Garratt, and rags to riches rapper Anderson .Paak.

[Hip/Hop] Kid Cudi – All Talk (Ft LCD Soundsystem + Christian Bale + Chip Tha Ripper)

Featuring the famous rant of Christian Bale on set, Kid Cudi and Chip Tha Ripper team up and lay some rhymes over LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Dance Yrself Clean’ from his latest album ‘This is Happening‘. Kid Cudi’s consistency in the quality of his work when he samples other artists never ceases to amaze me. While I do not think Christian Bale is THAT big off a jerk, this track is definitely hot.
