Since '08, Golden Gate Park in S.F. has hosted the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival. In another year or so, this upstart will, we predict, command as much attention as Lollapalooza or Bonnaroo. You gain respect like that through strength of schedule. OL's 2011 line-up is pretty: Arcade Fire, MGMT, Girl Talk, Major Lazer, Beirut, the Roots, Big Boi, and Toro Y Moi. And that's only a taste.
