A tricky little peel back ad over at SF Gate reveals a partial list of this year's Outside Lands Festival Lineup. If you don't have time to hover around while it unfurls, here it is: Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Incubus, Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz, M.I.A, Mars Volta, Thievery Corp, Modest Mouse, Ween. Definitely some heavy hitters in the music game (circa 90s-early 00s). Where are the newcomers who had us drooling last year? Coming soon we hope.
We're feeling a little post-festival depression, coming off of a whirlwind week of Noise Pop. So the announcement of this year's Outside Lands dates comes at a perfect time. The festival, which was a huge success last summer (minus the dirth of cabs) is going down this August 28 - 30 in Golden Gate Park. Mark your calendars. The festival will once again benefit the San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department, which could use a little boost these days.
