One of the unfortunate things about any music festival is that you can’t see it all. Sometimes, dueling headliners can make for a tough decision, but this year, the Friday night lineup at Outside Lands proved particularly vexing.

Aside from the beautiful weather that actually resembled summer, the main topic of conversation for the day seemed to be that Phoebe Bridgers and SZA, two of the most heavily anticipated performers of the weekend, were booked at nearly identical times on the Twin Peaks and Lands End stages. Chatter about the lineup clash could be heard in line at the festival entrance, and naturally people took to Twitter to express their frustration.










Unfortunately, a few fans clearly hadn’t yet taken a look at the schedule.


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

So maybe just go see SZA.
