Outside Lands burst onto the festival landscape in 2008 with a lineup headlined by Radiohead, Beck, and Tom Petty, and then followed up in 2009 with Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and Tenacious D. After downsizing to a two-day festival last year, the San Francisco-based extravaganza is back to its normal three-day format and has tapped a number of music’s biggest names to headline the festivities.
Set for August 12-14 at the historic Golden Gate Park, the festival will be led by Arcade Fire, Muse, and Phish, the latter of which will perform two sets over the course of the weekend. Other heavyweights include The Black Keys, Deadmau5, MGMT, The Decemberists, Arctic Monkeys, The Roots, Girl Talk, Erykah Badu, and Beirut.
Also on the bill are musical icons John Fogerty and The Orignal Meters, along with the recently reunited Big Audio Dynamite. Plus, STS9, Big Boi, Major Lazer, OK Go, Little Dragon, Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band, !!!, Best Coast, Warren Haynes Band, Sia, and Mavis Staples will also play.
If that weren’t enough, Old 97s, Charles Bradley, Phantogram, The Vaccines, Toro Y Moi, Vetiver, Wye Oak, Grouplove, Ty Segall, Junip, The Joy Formidable, STRFKR, Latyrx (featuring Lyrics Born & Lateef), and The Greyboy Allstars are also confirmed, as are The Limousines, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pajama Party, The Infamous Stringdusters, Collie Buddz, Lord Huron, The Fresh & Onlys, Ximena SariÃ±ana, Orgone, Ana Tijoux, and Tamaryn.
Three-day and VIP passes will go on sale Thursday April 14th at 12:00 p.m. PST via the festival’s website. A significant portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit San Franciscos Recreation and Park Department.
