Outside Lands 2011 Lineup List

San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival (@SFoutsidelands) 2011 lineup was announced earlier today and comes with little surprises. Like previous years, the lineup includes many notable names like Phish, The Roots, John Fogerty, The Decemberists and The Meters, all years pass their pinnacle of fame, with a sprinkling of several famous groups trying to return to their glory days like Big Boi, Artic Monkeys, Beirut, OK Go, and more. One surprise, however, is the festival returns to three days, kicking off on August 12th until August 14th, after last year changing to a two day format. Also, Bay Area fans will be pleased to see there are several local bands billed including Tamaryn, The Limousines, Latryx (featuring Lyrics Born & Lateef), Ty Segall and The Fresh And Onlys.

While it may sound like we’re unenthusiastic, it’s quite the opposite. Outside Lands Festival did a fantastic job last year of pulling together a slew of talented performers (listed above) with many budding bands (this year’s highlights: Wye Oak, Little Dragon, Junip, STRFCKR, Toro Y Moi, Tamaryn).

Tickets go on sale April 14th, and will increase in price closer to the date of the event.
