Outside Lands

When: August 5th-7th

Where: San Francisco, California

Why Go: Outside Lands is set within San Francisco's expansive and dusty Golden Gate bowl, encompassing four stages, a comedy tent, a DJ tent, and a stellar assembly of food booths and wine tastings. There are plenty of last-minute surprises, too: In 2015, Deltron 3030 reunited for an unannounced set, while Hot Chip knocked out a DJ set before their main stage performance. This year, Radiohead — who headlined the first Outside Lands in 2008 — returns for a Friday headlining performance, and even snarky techies will stick around to sing along with Lionel Richie during his Sunday closing set. 

Must-See Acts: Radiohead, Lionel Richie, the Muppets' Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem, Lana Del Rey, J Cole, Duran Duran, Zedd, Major Lazer, Air, Sufjan Stevens, Chance the Rapper, Anderson Paak
