San Francisco’s Outside Lands music festival is returning for its eleventh year with headliners The Weeknd, Florence + The Machine, and Janet Jackson. The three-day festival produced by Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly, and Starr Hill, will also feature performances from Future, Beck, Odesza, Bon Iver, and DJ Snake.


The heralded festival features powerhouse performances from its headliners along with new talent that includes Tash Sultana, Sabrina Claudio, Kelela, Daniel Caesar, and Perfume Genius. Huey Lewis & the News will also perform in addition to crowd favorites like Father John Misty, Mac Demarco, and Chvrches.

Outside Lands will return to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park from Aug. 10-12 and continue to showcase a world class music, art and comedy lineup alongside the best of the Bay Area’s food, wine, and beer.

The festival’s 2018 culinary program will continue to expand and this year fans will have access to over 200 menu items from the best Bay Area restaurants, hundreds of Northern Californian wines and beers and a collection of the region’s best cocktail bars. Outside Lands’ distinct food and drink experiences that excite the senses will also return, including Taste of the Bay Area, Wine Lands, Beer Lands, The Back Wine, Cocktail Magic, and GastroMagic. The Outside Lands 2018 food and drink lineup will be announced soon.

Outside Lands continues to be an environmental leader in the festival scene expanding its efforts to divert more waste than any other festival of its size. In 2017 an incredible 91% of last year’s waste was composed of reusable, recyclable, and compostable materials. As part of Outside Lands’ ongoing commitment to the local community, the festival has contributed over $20 million to the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department.
