9. Outside Lands

Born in the Bay, it’s almost as if Outside Lands has set out to prove to the rest of the nation that the NorCal-SoCal rivalry is alive and well. While Coachella has a solid nine years on the newer Outside Lands, the latter has continued to close the gap by putting out legendary sets year after year. It still has a long way to go to get on the same level as its SoCal counterpart, but so far, so good. The 2014 lineup has yet to be revealed, but if last year’s lineup — which was headlined by Paul McCartney and Red Hot Chili Peppers — is any indication, you’ll want to be at Golden State Park come August.
