“Saturday is the best day because you can be hungover tomorrow and it doesn’t matter,” roared Este Haim of the indie rock sister trio Haim during their midday performance on day two of the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival. Opening their set with “Falling” from their 2013 debut, Days Are Gone, Este continued to quip, “I would expect nothing less than massive ass shaking from [this fest],” before leading the girls into a spunky rally around the track’s don’t-stop-‘tip-you-get-enough pop hook:


Despite the fog enveloping the crowds, the performances continued to heat up Golden Gate Park, the concrete jungle street folksters The Tumbleweed Wanderers carrying the afternoon torch, with honorable mention to the British rock set, The Kooks. Meanwhile Death Cab for Cutie owned a wispy Land’s End Stage spot, and the hip-hop booty shock of Big Freedia and a bevy of twerking background dancers enthralled audience members across the park.

More hip-hop from Atmosphere and disco house from DJ duo Duck Sauce contributed to the diverse lineup before the night closed with Grammy-winning hip hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. And rock legends Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers made their second headlining show since the first Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival with a three hour closer.
