Festival Watch: Outside Lands


From August 10-12, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park will once more be home to Outside Lands, hosting three days’ (and three stages’!) worth of music, comedy, and post-festival shows. The 2012 edition features headliners Metallica, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Foo Fighters, Jack White, and Skrillex, plus lesser-known gems like Zola Jesus, Sharon Van Etten, Washed Out, and Tanlines.
