There is nothing like hearing for weeks on end about who and what you missed at Outside Lands. One can quickly grow numb to the barrage of Instagram photos, shaky Snapchat stories from 30 rows back and the wristbands no one takes off until they start to develop an odor. “I forgot just how tired and sore you feel after the first day, but being around friends and new people make up for the countless blisters,” senior Katerina Argyridou said, who attended the festival for the second year in a row.
Here’s to the trending artists who appeared at Outside Lands and will be returning to the Bay Area this fall (with a much more palatable price tag).
Chicago native DJ and music producer Ethan Snoreck, otherwise known as Whethan, will be taking the stage at The Warfield in San Francisco on Oct. 18 ($23). Some may know him from his short touring stint in 2017 with The Chainsmokers or his massively popular track list available on SoundCloud, featuring songs like “High” with Dua Lipa and “XE3,” which now has over 11 million plays.
Indie-pop princess Billie Eilish is returning to the Bay Area on Oct. 20 at the Fox Theater in Oakland ($55). The electro-pop artist is not just known for her unique sound, but her creative takes on fashion which are featured on her Instagram page (@wherearetheavocados). Eilish has just surpassed 200 million streams on Spotify with her most popular songs like “lovely,” featuring Khalid, and “ocean eyes,” from her debut album.
You can find immaculately dressed rockstar Garrett Clark Borns, better known by his stage name BØRNS, at Ace of Spades in Sacramento on Oct. 23 ($35). The success of the 26-year-old singer-songwriter has landed him as a headliner for festivals like Coachella and SXSW and has most recently allowed him to embark on a worldwide tour to promote his new album, “Blue Madonna.”
The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco will be featuring upcoming pop-star Kailee Morgue on Oct. 30, alongside artists Poppy and Jaira Burns ($20). The Republic Records-signed singer has made quite the successful entrance into the music sphere since the release of her EP “Medusa” back in January and is hard to miss between the tattoos and lively green hairdo.
