On Sunday, Outside Lands wrapped up their three-day festival with another day of stellar performances that culminated with sets from Tame Impala and Kehlani. In yet another instance where Outside Lands booked an artist that is a radical departure from most of the lineup, an early set on Sunday was with Cam who is a country artist. It was a solid performance and she seemed to be having a great time with it. Her happiness in the moment was infectious.

Another fun set was with Goth Babe who drew a sizable crowd. It was pretty easy to see why as the band delivered a well paced set that offered plenty to smile about. And then there was Yves Tumor and their band! Judging from the crowd Yves Tumor drew the vast majority of people at the festival weren’t familiar with him. If they were, that meadow would have been insanely packed. Yves is an imposing and hugely charismatic person and gets your attention just by walking on the stage, but when they and the band get going, it is and was vastly more than one could imagine. The set was gloriously loud and full with excellent vocals from Yves Tumor. Those who were in that crowd witnessed one of the great sets of the weekend, if not the history of Outside Lands and it was with great reluctance I had to leave to cover another set. Heartbreaking, actually.

Other highlights of the afternoon were with mxmtoon, and Boy Pablo before moving to the closing set with Kehlani who gave a lavishly produced performance at the Sutro stage.
