Outside Lands Announces 2015 Lineup

Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly and Starr Hill, in a partnership with the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, have announced an outstanding lineup for the eighth annual Outside Lands Festival. 

After four consecutive sold-out years, the world's only gourmet music festival that Rolling Stone hailed as "one of America's best," and the Huffington Post called "a well-rounded cultural event," will once again take place in San Francisco's historic Golden Gate Park August 7 - 9, 2015.

While the Eager Beaver on sale had the fastest sell-out in the history of the festival, a limited number of 3-Day General Admission and VIP regular tickets go on sale this Thursday, March 26th at 10am PDT via SFOutsideLands.com. A significant portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department. The festival has given more than $10 million to the department since its inception.

Now in its eighth installment, Outside Lands has absolutely solidified its reputation as one of the most well-known and revered festivals in the world. The media across the country has been universally praising the event since its inception in 2008, covering the festival's evolution from setting the standard in the region to its current position as a renowned national powerhouse that all artists consider one of the most important performances in any given year.

As with all the great Outside Lands lineups of the past seven years, the 2015 edition is brilliantly diverse by design. From legends like Elton John and D'Angelo, to current massive hit makers such as Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys, Sam Smith and Kendrick Lamar, to indie darlings Wilco, Tame Impala and St. Vincent, to newcomers on the rise like Lake Street Dive, Mac DeMarco, George Ezra, Glass Animals, James Bay, Sky Ferreria, Leon Bridges, Shakey Graves, Benjamin Booker and Natalie Prass, to electronic luminaries Axwell & Ingrosso, Porter Robinson, Hot Chip, Caribou, ODESZA, RL Grime, DJ Mustard, Green Velvet & Claude VonStroke: Get Real, Django Django and Dan Deacon, to hip hop rising stars G-Eazy and SZA, Outside Lands has developed into a hub of infinite music exploration. As Mother Jones magazine once exclaimed, "Outside Lands is as much about showcasing up-and-coming bands - and their colorful fans, of course - as it is about the stars."

As the world's only gourmet rock festival, Outside Lands has been a pioneer in the food-music movement since its 2008 inception. Each year, to the delight of ticket-holders, producers enhance the festival's stellar culinary offerings. There are now a total of six unique experiences to be discovered, all of which fully celebrate Northern California's rich food and drink culture. These experiences include A Taste of the Bay Area, Wine Lands, Beer Lands, Choco Lands, Cheese Lands and the 2014 hit addition, GastroMagic, which is a fully programmed stage devoted to fantastical culinary entertainment. The Outside Lands 2015 food and drink lineup will be announced in the coming months.
