Get Your Poncho Ready: Outside Lands Announces 2015 Lineup
Elton John, Wilco, The Black Keys, Kendrick Lamar, and many, many more will take over Golden Gate Park this August
For its eighth year, Outside Lands has set up shop in the heart of San Francisco—Golden Gate Park—to host some of the biggest and best bands amongst the towering redwoods and bone-chilling mist. (Yes, it gets misty even in August. Actually, especially in August.) The annual fest also hosts some of the, hands-down, best culinary treats from the Bay Area and, lest we not forget, the boozy majesty of Wine Lands.
With a few more months to go before the 2015 edition, the festival has now announced its 2015 lineup, which, as usual, is stacked with huge names. Elton John, Mumford & Sons, and The Black Keys take top billing, with headline-quality acts such as Wilco, Tame Impala, D’Angelo, St. Vincent, Kendrick Lamar, and Caribou also scheduled to play. The lineup is rounded out by a nice spread of newcomers such as Leon Bridges, Natalie Prass, and Broods, who will probably have the best shot of appearing during the day alongside the rare San Francisco sunshine (don’t get your hopes up, though).
