Hey, it's me, Ashley, on Day Three of the San Francisco music festival Outside Lands. So last night my phone died! But here's a round up of the evening's events.

Ben Harper reunited with his original band The Innocent Criminals for the first time since 2008, an amazing set.
Then the most crowded show of the festival, Kendrick Lamar, rocked the Twin Peaks Stage, everyone was going NUTS.

Later, Flood Magazine hosted its "FloodFest" after-party in downtown San Fran, everyone STILL talking about Kendrick's set. Can't wait for tonight's top acts, Odesza, Nate Ruess, James Bay, Sam Smith and - drum roll - Elton John!
