But wait, there’s more.
Also on the lineup for August 28, 29 and 30 is M.I.A., Jason Mraz, Ween, The Mars Volta, Thievery Corporation and Modest Mouse, but that’s just scratching the surface.
Also expect Band Of Horses, TV On The Radio, The Dead Weather, Atmosphere, Tom Jones, Silversun Pickups, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, The National, and this week’s Pollstar HotStar, Brett Dennen, to drop a few names.

In fact, we could keep on naming performers. Like Q-Tip, Bettye LaVette, Kinky, Built To Spill, Mastodon and Deerhunter. Needless to say, calling this a “big” summer festival would hardly do justice to the event.
Along with three days of music, Outside Lands will also feature San Francisco’s famous and diverse cuisine and vino from local wineries.
As a San Francisco-based music festival, Outside Lands will also include features unique to the city’s position as a leader in technology and ecology.
For the ecologically minded, Outside Lands has created Eco Lands, which includes a place where the stage and cell phone charging station is powered by solar energy. Eco Lands will also serve up food at an organic farmer’s market as well as provide a refillable water station and recycling store.
