Best Of Outside Lands

Went to Outside Lands last weekend in SF, now I miss it and feel like rmaking a list to commemorate the event. Feel free to ignore it, or leave rcomments if you went as well. If anyone saw the same bands at other festivals, I'd be curious rhow you thought they performed against what I wrote here.
1Muse

Muse always puts on an amazing show and this was not exception. I got pretty close for this and it was worth it.
2Deadmau5

(Projected Rating) I had to catch a midnight flight (only way to be able to attend the festival at all) so left after only 30 minutes, but they were a kick ass 30 minutes.
3Starfucker

Their music was great and the crowd got really into it. They played everything spot on and were better live than on the albums
4The Shins

James Mercer's voice was amazing and the girl guitarist added some cool riffs to the songs.
5The Black Keys

They were really good live. I enjoyed it when it was just the two members more because Dan added a lot more cool riffs to the songs.
6Beirut

It took them a few songs to warm up but they were much better than when I saw them earlier this summer.
7Major Lazer

Really fun DJ set by Major Lazer. Everyone was really into it even though they didn't especially play the best or most popular songs.
8Arctic Monkeys

They had a really good set list but something was off about their performance. They seemed really tired for the first half.
9MGMT

The first half was awesome, the second was only okay. They had a very poor song selection for a hour long festival set. Im okay with no 'Kids', but 12 minute long 'Siberian Breaks' should be saved for their own shows.
10The Vaccienes

I only saw half of this, but it was great. Would be probably be higher if I saw the whole thing.
11Grouplove

Saw them as I took a standing break so that might have affected it a lot. I checked out their EP after the weekend and liked it.
12Tune-Yards

Only saw half of this as well. Not really my kind of music, but it was cool how she looped different stuff live. Much better live than on the CD.
13Phantogram

First band of the weekend so I dont really remember much other than liking it.
14!!!

Not my style of music at all, but still had fun dancing to it
15Big Audio Dynamite

Saw them to escape the freezing cold weather and get a good spot for The Shins. Only band I saw that I would place at the 'okay' level. They only had a couple good songs and the rest were pretty mediocre.
