SF Outside Lands Fest: Too Good to Pass Up?


I originally felt that I couldn’t handle being in one corner of Golden Gate Park even if Jack Johnson was playing on another, but now that more of the artist lineup has been announced for this August’s Outside Lands Festival, the temptation is killing me. Early-bird tix are available now via Radiohead HQ.

When they said that Lollapalooza-type festivals would be criss-crossing the country eating each other up, they weren’t kidding. But what could be better than an August weekend in Golden Gate Park with the music accoutrements of (for starters):

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Manu Chao
Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals
Rodrigo y Gabriela
Café Tacvba
Broken Social Scene
Regina Spektor
Devendra Banhart
Cold War Kids
Galactic’s Crescent City
Soul Krewe
Lyrics Born
Andrew Bird
Steel Pulse
Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings
M. Ward
Drive-By Truckers
Jack Johnson
Widespread Panic
The Cool Kids
Steve Winwood
Matt Nathanson
Two Gallants
Little Brother
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
The Coup
Bon Iver
Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk
The Felice Brothers
Back Door Slam
