Maybe you’re still recovering from Coachella or you hit it hard at fauxchella but damn it, it’s festival season and Golden Gate Park’s Outside Lands is already less than four months away. The sixth-annual three-day celebration of music, comedy, food, booze, and the great city of SF has officially announced their lineup. Taking a page from that lesser fest down south, they’ve nabbed some pretty stellar acts, including Jurassic 5 and headliner Phoenix. Even more epic? Their throwback headliners include legends Paul McCartney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Nine Inch Nails.
