New bands added to San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival in August

It’s looking like the next festival on the Fuel/Friends docket is the inaugural Outside Lands Art & Music Festival at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park in August. As a native from the Bay Area, I am looking forward to returning for a festival of this magnitude, quality, and scenic placement (akin to Treasure Island in terms of taking advantage of the local environment).

Check the full lineup, with some new additions announced today (and relevant links to Fuel/Friends content to entertain you while my server is down and Monday Music Roundups languish):


*FRIDAY AUGUST 22* (starts 5pm)

  • Yeah, got my pass a month ago and I’m psyched for this show since I was underwhelmed by the Treasure Island Fest’s lineup. (though I’ll probably hit that too.)

  • Yay, you decided to come!!

    Hit me up, I owe you a beer (or is it four)…

  • That’s a pretty sweet looking lineup. You could theoretically see Steve Winwood and Lupe Fiasco in the same day!

  • Not a bad lineup at all. Check out Back Door Slam on Sunday – Great group.

  • Cannot wait. We’re coming all the way from Edmonton, Alberta for this one. Having Mike Gordon and Bela Fleck added is just a huge bonus.

  • Damn this line up rocks!
    Here in Belgium we have also pretty big nice festivals like werchter and pukkelpop.
    But this year no Manu Chao and Felice Brothers on the program.
    San Francisco you are spoiled!

    Is this organisation also live nation?

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
