Friday:

The Joy Formidable
I love this band, they seem like so much fun and their debut album The Big Roar is fantastic. They have a big sound for a 3 piece band, sound familiar?

Phantogram
Very cool sound from this 2 piece band, their album Eyelid Movies is really worth a listen.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvSgLHWR16o

Foster The People
I CANNOT EXPRESS MY LOVE FOR THIS BAND ENOUGH. These guys are a must-see, DO NOT miss their set. They're on their way to becoming a household name, and they only just released their first album, which is called Torches. I've seen them twice and will be seeing them 3 more times in the coming months. Go. See them.

The Shins
James Mercer has a beautiful voice

Saturday:

The Vaccines
If you're not planning on staying on the Muse barrier all day, go and see this band. I'm not too familiar with them yet, but I've only heard great things about their live shows and they're becoming very popular.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQKjI6395iU

Starfucker (STRFKR)
Fun band! Excited to see them.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTuygg7TD6U

Arctic Monkeys
A must-see. Hopefully you've heard of them?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDhCXubkbd0
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLsBJPlGIDU

The Black Keys
GO SEE THEM.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpaPBCBjSVc&ob=av2e (I love this video hahaha)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGmGAy_4iEs

Muse, lol.

Sunday:

Grouplove
This band is making it's way up, they don't even have an album out yet and they're already so popular!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPvONCgWOmk

!!!
These guys seem hilarious.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3zrAynlU3o

Little Dragon
Gorgeous music.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yedD4JsZyT0

Wye Oak
I'm bummed that their slot conflicts with Little Dragon
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBOU0dafnlA

Beirut
I so wish they had been opening for Arcade Fire
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLdCoVnESsY

Arcade Fire
My favorite band, next to Muse. Please go see them, you won't be sorry. Their first album, Funeral, is my favorite album of all time. I've seen them twice and they made me cry.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b_IHjWXbuM (This is my favorite song, period.)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH_7_XRfTMs

No problem! Some of these bands will probably hit Muse-popularity status one day, and we'll have seen them when they're still young and crazy

We'll see if Haley (agenthal) stops by in this thread soon, she could probably make an even better list.

I'll be there by wednesday so I'm down to hang out.

Whoops, so I meant to post this as the second video for The Joy Formidable: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W66yhfMb4d0

Oh and here are some fun facts about certain bands

Fun Facts

The Joy Formidable are a band from Wales, and Dave Grohl (drummer of Nirvana, frontman of Foo Fighters) called their song Whirring the best song of the year so far.

Foster The People...well, if you're female, you will enjoy watching them The entire band is attractive, I actually got more nervous when I met them than when I met Muse because of this

James Mercer of The Shins did a side project called Broken Bells with the drummer of Danger Mouse last year. I saw them live and they were amazing
Broken Bells (not playing at OSL, but still!)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWBG1j_flrg&ob=av2e
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNl0Jw9_Z5A

Tom Kirk does the live visuals for The Black Keys Support Kirk! See them before Muse, they're on the same stage!

Grouplove has an amazing story - the vocalists, Hannah and Christian, fell in love at first sight. They spontaneously traveled to Greece together within a week of meeting each other, where they met the other 3 band members. They wrote music together while on vacation, and decided to move to LA where they recorded an EP. It's like a movie plot or something, lol. Hear them tell their story here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ftaz48aoUPo

Little Dragon collaborated with the band Gorillaz on their album Plastic Beach. Here's one of the songs:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nX-A061-9k

Zach Condon of Beirut wrote Gulag Orkestar (the song I linked in my rec list) when he was just 17. Crazy talented!

Arcade Fire are a Canadian/American band - they just won a Grammy for Best Album of the Year (for their album The Suburbs), which was considered the biggest upset of this year's awards because they beat Eminem and Lady Gaga Watch their reactions here, so amazing:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5npCMAok-M (Not gunna lie, I cried when they won. Hahaha)

I was excited to see that the Arctic Monkeys were on the list for Saturday. I've heard nothing but good things about The Vaccines and The Black Keys, so I'll be checking them out (I don't really have a choice for the Black Keys though seeing as they're on before Muse).
I'm sad I won't get to see Arcade Fire, as they're one of the bands I want to see live the most. I've added them to my list of "bands (non-Muse) I must see when they come to my area". I think I have about 3.

Oh yeah, I got paper for the Space Dementia sign.

I was looking for what you can bring or should bring for an all day thing (ie can you bring a 2 litre bottle size of ice to have as ice water, or any snacks?) but can't find any link on the site.

What's sensible to bring if I don't plan to be at barrier all day (would love to but probably die of something by 8pm) to be comfortable? Like small thing to sit on?

Dressing will be tricky - from hot sun to freezing fog!

Also found this guide to the music (but considering they cite Black Holes and Revelation for Muse - this guide is for super casual fans - which I am for all these other bands!)

dude I have those exact same questions. yay newbs
festival veterans, please lend some tips!!!!!

I emailed OSL about bringing snacks and they responded quite swiftly:
Thank you for your interest in Outside Lands and for getting in touch. You will be allowed to bring in small snacks but excess amounts of food will not be allowed into the festival.
I'm definitely bringing some snacks and things to replace meals but WHAT IF I NEED TO USE THE RESTROOM???????

You should email them about ice. I'm gonna freeze so I'm more than fine with lukewarm water

I'm excited for those acts too!

Seeing Arcade Fire live should be on everybody's bucket list

Yaaaaaay, make it stand out!

I can't help you with any of these things, I'm new to festivals myself

Those recommendations are kinda weird haha, and not to discredit it but I don't think it's the best list to follow for Muse fans. That is, if you guys like more alternative rock stuff.

I'm just confused about the bands that are listed and the ones that aren't Like, I don't understand why they would list Best Coast and not The Joy Formidable. I've seen Best Coast, it was one of the most boring shows I've ever been to. The Joy Formidable's album is LOADS better, and their live videos look like so much fun.

What about The Shins? And why the hell are The Greyboy Allstars and Christina Perri on the Saturday list when Arctic Monkeys, Muse, and The Black Keys aren't? I'm especially confused that Arcade Fire aren't on the Sunday list either
