Outside Lands lineup

I’m on my way to Outside Hacks - a hackathon tied in with the Outside Lands music festival.  Since many hacks at the hackathon will be related to the festival it is pretty important to have a machine-readable version of the artist lineup for the festival. However, I couldn’t find any online.  Since I had an hour in the airport lounge, and the airport actually has decent WiFi, I thought I would try to be a good hacker citizen and generate an easily parseable lineup.

A little python + some BeautifulSoup and a bit of Echo Nest Rosetta Data and I have created an Outside Lands lineup JSON that includes links to artist pages, plus Echo Nest, Spotify and Rdio IDs.  The JSON is hosted online at:

Here’s the code:

It’s about time to get on the plane. If you can think of other interesting data to add to the lineup json let me know and I’ll try to add it before the hackathon.
