There was some big news announced and confirmed today in the music festival world — Radiohead, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and Jack Johnson were just announced as headliners for the inaugural Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park this August.

The Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival is set to take place in San Francisco’s historic Golden Gate Park August 22-24 with Radiohead, Jack Johnson, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and dozens of other bands and attractions. From singer-songwriters to DJs, jazz acts and cutting edge rock bands, all major music movements will be celebrated alongside a host of local musicians, food vendors and visual artists representing San Francisco’s vibrant cultural community.

This green-conscious event will directly benefit the San Franscisco Recreation & Park Department with a special annual donation. The Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival is certain to be the ultimate summer destination for live music fans, and the fact that it will take place in the great city of San Francisco ensures an unparalleled entertainment experience. Come on out and join in the fun!

This is great news for fans on the West Coast and I’m sure we’ll see a nicely rounded-out lineup when it’s all said and done. Even though we’re reaching saturation point and the music festival industry is becoming a bit commoditized, I still can’t wait to see what Superfly does next.
