San Francisco's own outdoor three-day music festival appears to have booked Kings of Leon.

They've had some pretty interesting lineups the first two years. This festival will always be on my "maybe" list. With the Kings of Leon confirmation news, I'm officially stoked for Outside Lands 2011.

I really wanted to go in 2008, and I went for one day last year and got to see Atmosphere --> Avett Brothers --> Modest Mouse --> Band of Horses. Excellent day.

Barring conflicts, I hope to see Band of Horses this year. I thought they were very average the first time I saw them, but have read so much greatness about their live shows.

Avett Brothers and Modest Mouse in the same day though, money.

It was awesome. And I'm something of a Band of Horses superfan -- saw them for the first time at Sasquatch 2006, actually, and many many times since. I can't imagine missing their set this year.

Sasquatch 2006 is the only time I've seen them live. I sure did like the cover they played then. Everything All The Time is one of my favorite albums of the previous decade, I just never gave them a second chance live.

Ridiculously stoked to see BoH for my first time. It's been a looong time overdue.

I had no idea people actually liked Kings of Leon.

I was about to say the b-word and realized it would've been filtered to something a little different...
Airfare/lodging for Lolla was adding up quickly so instead I'm planning a road trip with a small group of people that might intersect with this fest and the lineup is looking pretty decent. Does anyone know if they usually sell out/ logistics of parking, etc? The fest website is pretty bare and not so helpful.

It's in Golden Gate Park, which is in San Francisco, which means hahahahaha have fun finding street parking. Just take public transportation to the festival from wherever you are staying.

Festivals inside major cities sound so unappealing to me :/

Usually I'd agree, but the opportunity to spend a couple afternoons inside Golden Gate Park without having to worry about being stabbed to death by a guy in a gorilla suit or something does sound kind of appealing. Seeing Phish and the Shins play would just be a bonus.

You know what? I've never been to San Fran and have always wanted to. I suppose I can get on board with that logic!

I was born in the Bay Area, but haven't been to visit since '03. I figure it would be a fun place to make a pit stop. Plus, it doesn't hurt that Six Flags Vallejo is on the way.

Definitely considering driving down with some friends from Boise but with gas prices going the way they are, it isnt looking too likely for me :(

I wish I could see BAD though, in all their ugly-teeth glory.
