Just last week, we noted that San Francisco’s Outside Lands music festival had booked their first-ever female headliner in the form of the iconic Janet Jackson. Well, it turns out they did one better and landed both Janet Jackson and Florence + The Machine, turning a major corner by slotting a majority of women headliners for the 2018 event. Rounding out the list of headliners is The Weeknd, fresh off his new EP released on Friday.
But really making the OSL lineup special is the stuff below the top line. Joining those artists will be Bon Iver, Future, Father John Misty, Carly Rae Jepsen, N.E.R.D., Chvrches, Odesza, Jamie xx, Huey Lewis And The News (!), The Internet, Broken Social Scene, Rex Orange County, Margo Price, Amen Dunes, Lucy Dacus, Kelela, Perfume Genius, James Blake, Mac DeMarco, and DJ Snake.
This will be the 11th installment of Outside Lands, held in Golden Gate Park, and over that time the festival has established itself as one of the best in the country. For this year, that is apparent in a lineup, but the majesty of the event extends to its yearly beer, food, wine, and comedy lineups, as well. Information on those is still forthcoming.
Tickets for Outside Lands go on sale on Thursday, with prices starting at $375 for 3-Day GA and $795 for 3-Day VIP. The event sells out annually, so don’t sleep on those. Outside Lands 2018 takes place from August 10-12.
