If you live in the bay area (or plan to be here the weekend of August 22nd), get ready for the first annual Outside Lands music festival! The Bonnaroo-size line-up features some of the biggest names around, such as Radiohead, Beck, Tom Petty, Jack Johnson, Wilco, Primus and more (see below). Tickets go on sale this Sunday, March 30th at 10AM on Sfoutsidelands.com
The festivities will take place in Golden Gate Park August 22-24th, and it's being produced by Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly Productions, Starr Hill Presents, and the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department. It will be comparable in size to the The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, which that takes place every October, however that three-day event is free to the public, whereas Outside Lands will require you to purchase a ticket to get in...but with a line-up like this, it'll be worth it.
The line-up so far: RADIOHEAD, TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS, JACK JOHNSON, BECK, WILCO, MANU CHAO, BEN HARPER, WIDESPREAD PANIC, PRIMUS, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA, STEVE WINWOOD, DEVENDRA BANHART, SHARON JONES AND THE DAP-KINGS, BLACK MOUNTAIN, DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS, GALACTIC, BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE, and more will be announced.
