Up-and-Comers: Duck Sauce.

Inside Outside Lands: Tour Vets vs. New Blood

Annie Tittiger | August 7, 2014 | Story Music

Should you remain faithful to that square-jawed Dutch mega-DJ or go for something more obscure, like, say, Duck Sauce? A festival primer.

Festival Faves: Tegan and Sara
Up-and-Comers: Lucius
The Lowdown: A pop band with two lady vocalists leading the charge, Lucius play with harmonies just as artfully as Tegan and Sara, but with a little less emo squeal and more pedal steel percussion.
SUNDAY, AUG. 10

Festival Faves: Tom Petty
Up-and-Comers: Tumbleweed Wanderers
The Lowdown: The Oakland folk rockers rely on guitar melo- dies à la Petty—but they also allow a banjo, a mandolin, and the occasional glockenspiel to shine in all sorts of haunting and happy tunes.
SUNDAY, AUG. 10

Festival Faves: The Killers
Up-and-Comers: Capital Cities
The Lowdown: The Los Angeles electric pop duo gained viral fame last summer with their infectious single “Safe and Sound,” but it’s their synchronized dance moves that set them apart.
SATURDAY, AUG. 9

Festival Faves: Tiesto
Up-and-Comers: Duck Sauce
The Lowdown: You’ve heard the party anthem “Barbra Streisand.” Expect more trance-inducing upbeat dance jams from the Boston-based electronic duo—music much like that of their Dutch predecessor.
SATURDAY, AUG. 9

Festival Faves: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Up-and-Comers: Watsky
The Lowdown: So the San Francisco slam poet turned rapper doesn’t have a Hot 100 single (yet)—what he does have is quick-paced syncopation and pale skin, and he grew up seven blocks from the park.
SUNDAY, AUG. 10
