This is great news for the Festival Freak!
The U.S. festival frenzy continues with today’s announcement that Radiohead, Tom Petty and Jack Johnson will headline San Francisco’s inaugural Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, to be held Aug. 22-24 at Golden Gate Park.
Additional acts for Outside Lands will be announced in the coming weeks, says Mayers, who promises a “strong and diverse” lineup of such musical genres as rock, blues, reggae, jazz, hip-hop, world, soul, Latin and electronic. The festival, which will boast five main performance stages, will also feature a number of local Bay Area artists.
Outside Lands will arrive approximately one month prior to San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival (Sept. 20-21) and several months ahead of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 25-27) in Indio, Calif. Despite the competition in California, not to mention other large-scale festivals throughout North America, Mayers is confident that Outside Lands will draw about 60,000 nationwide concertgoers per day.
The lineup will be announced on March 24 and tickets will go on sale March 30.
