Outside Lands Festival 2010 - Saturday - Furthur (feat Phil Lesh & Bob Weird of the Grateful Dead)...
Sat 8/14 @ Golden Gate Park
I've also had good luck thus so far just taking the N Judah. Instead of waiting around 30th and Judah, take a 15 minute walk down to the one of the stops closer to the ocean. Less people are waiting there. You usually get on and get a seat when the first train arrives. It gets crowded, but crowd thins out halfway to Embarcadero.
Next time take the 38 Geary. You can get off at Embarcadero station and catch it on Fremont @ Market or get off at the Montgomery station and catch it on Market @ Montgomery. If you're really worried about getting a seat just walk to Howard & Beale where the line starts (two blocks away from Embaracdero station). It runs all the way down Geary and should make better time than the 5 or the N. Get off at 36th Ave. and Geary and then walk 5 blocks south to the park.
I recommend catching the 38 back downtown from 36th Ave. as well. By the time it gets to the 20's the bus will likely get completely packed. This actually can speed up the travel time as the bus will just barrel down Geary until someone needs to get off. And again, just like walking to Market and Beale, if there is a mass exodus heading to 36th Ave. and Geary, just walk over to 39th Ave. and Geary to catch it there.
This has worked for me for the past three festivals.
I couldn't have been more disappointed with the transportation service at this event. Not only was the recommended bus from BART not in service on Saturday morning (it did start up later though) but leaving the show was abysmally in disarray. 9 hours of travel time from Oakland to San Francisco... blah. Didn't even go Sunday as it just wasn't worth the hassle.
Last time I'll ever go to this event.
Lineup thus so far (based on bands announcing tour dates and the answers to the Ranger Dave clues)
Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, Pretty Lights, Levon Helm Band, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Social Distortion, Chromeo, Bassnectar, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Phoenix, Devil Makes Three, Al Green, Tokyo Police Club, Vieux Farka Toure, Nneka, Temper Trap

Yeah, I really wanted to like this but it was just completely impractical to see the bands I wanted to in any way that made me feel a connection to them, plus the fact that so many irritating meatheads like the same music I do was kind of depressing to me.
On the plus side, biking to and from the event was amazingly smooth. The SFBC deserves huge kudos for their valet bike parking efforts.
transportation/muni nightmare both coming a going. radiohead was great (minus the sound outages). shitty scheduling with too many bands overlapping so that you had to pick and choose whom to see. meh
Yeah, things were in some disarray Friday night and the sound cut-outs were pretty mind-boggling. But otherwise it was awesome. I hope they do it next year. Although at that price, they'll need to have a line-up just as strong to get me in for 3 days.
sounds like i just got a $100 richer!
I was too busy with other stuff, so I only went on Friday for Radiohead. And there were a lot of people there, so the stage was far away! Outrage! Perhaps I shouldn't have bought a three day pass. Hmmmm
awful awful awful. everything brad k said. plus no one's cell phone worked at all so you couldnt find anyone or get a hold of people. maybe my worst concert experience ever. waste of $100. The only thing that saved my weekend was that Ryan Adams the next night at Fillmore might have been close to the best show i've ever seen. odd how that worked out in the same weekend.
