One of the downsides of any music festival is that you can’t see everything. Sometimes dueling headliners can make a tough decision, but this year’s Friday night lineup at Outside Lands proved particularly vexing.

Aside from the beautiful weather that actually felt like summer, the main talking point of the day seemed to be that Phoebe Bridgers and SZA, two of the weekend’s most anticipated performers, were booked at nearly identical times on the Twin Peaks and Lands. Final steps. Discussions of the scheduling conflict could be heard in the queue at the entrance to the festival, and naturally people took to Twitter to express their frustration.










Unfortunately, a few fans had obviously not yet taken a look at the program.


However, it should be noted that Bay Area fans got to see Bridgers last night at a secret show in Healdsburg. Her performance on Friday night will be featured on the festival’s Twitch live stream, and there’s another opportunity to see her perform at an after party at The Independent.

So maybe go see SZA.
