Outside Lands is returning to San Francisco for its seventh year, and the lineup is both unique and excellent. Kanye West, Tom Petty, and the Killers top the bill, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Tiësto, Arctic Monkeys, Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, and Disclosure also playing sizable sets.
The bill was announced by Huey Lewis in a Funny or Die-produced video in which he plays a few different versions of himself as a local, um, News-caster. The best moment comes when West's participation is announced by an adoptable dog named Bobo. Spoon, former SPIN cover stars Tegan and Sara, fellow SPIN cover stars Haim, Cut Copy, Atmosphere, Chromeo, Jenny Lewis, Run the Jewels, Warpaint, Dum Dum Girls, and many more are also on the bill.
The festival takes place August 8 to 10 in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Tickets go on sale on Thursday, April 10 at 10 a.m. PT, with three-day passes starting at $255. For a refresher, check out the 40 best things SPIN saw at Outside Lands 2013.
