UPDATE: Outside Lands Festival: Ames + Webcast!

by John Reynolds on August 26, 2009

UPDATE: Apparently Pearl Jam’s set was not broadcast and we’re sorry about the confusion. Early in the day, they listed the bands performing and Pearl Jam was not listed (although other big acts, like DMB, were). We still feel the site could have done a better job of indicating that not all bands would be webcast.

A press release has confirmed that the Outlands Festival will be webcast on YouTube! Pearl Jam’s appearance is on Friday August 28, so don’t miss it!

Aug 26, 2009, San Francisco, CA — Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly Productions and Starr Hill Presents, in a partnership with the San Francisco Recreation Park Department, today announced that YouTube£ will stream live the Outside Lands Music Arts Festival to viewers in the US. The live webcast will be featured on youtube.com/outsidelands beginning Friday, August 28th – Sunday, August 30th. The festival coverage will include performances from Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, Thievery Corporation, The Dead Weather, Silversun Pickups, Raphael Saadiq, Cage the Elephant, Atmosphere, among others.

The tradition of marrying music and technology continues to be a foundation of the Outside Lands Music Arts Festival. “We are proud to feature Outside Lands as the first-ever live streamed festival on such a powerful and recognizable platform as YouTube,” said Richard Goodstone of Superfly Productions. Created by Superfly Marketing Group in partnership with YouTube and The T-Mobile® myTouch£ 3G, the webcast will mark the first time YouTube has streamed a major event live on its website.

“Music and many of the artists performing at Outside Lands have always found a home and audience on YouTube,” said Ross Hoffman of YouTube Strategic Partnerships. “We’re thrilled to bring this incredible live music festival to everyone in our community who won’t be there in-person to experience the show”. In addition to live streaming directly from the festival, fans will be able to access an archive of selected performances and highlights on Youtube’s Outside Lands channel.

Also, Ten Club members should have received an email detailing Ames poster joy:
