Don’t stress. We’ve done the heavy lifting for you (i.e. using our eyes and memory) to bring you what (and who) we know so far about the 2018 Outside Lands lineup.
That’s right…Miss Jackson herself will be headlining Outside Lands 2018. Not only that, but she’ll hold court as the festival’s first-ever female headliner.
Huey Lewis & The News
San Francisco’s own Huey Lewis & the News will be back to remind us it’s “Hip to be Square” and of “The Power of Love.” We’ll be “Workin’ for a Livin'” until then.
Portugal. The Man
Portugal. The Man is coming off a huge year. “Feel It Still” went platinum and they earned themselves a Grammy along the way. Check out their interview with KFOG for the story behind Woodstock, the album that almost didn’t happen.
That’s right…Bon Iver, the star of your all-in-the-feels playlist, is coming to Outside Lands. Bring your lighter.
Jessie Ware will make her second appearance at Outside Lands, having played her hit “Wildest Moments” the Sutro Stage in 2013. We’ll see where runaway single “Say You Love Me” will take her this year.
Speaking of platinum singles, “Electric Love” will surely be on the Børns setlist this year. And lucky for us, he’s even better live. Don’t take our word for it – check out his KFOG Private Concert.
Rex Orange County
Despite his name, 19-year-old Rex Orange County hails from the U.K., and with the release of his bright, feel-good “Loving is Easy,” you can expect to hear more from this rising star. Need more? Check out The Fader documentary Rex in New York.
Multimedia artist and multi-instrumental musician Mac DeMarco first emerged as Makeout Videotape in 2008. Now residing in California, the Canadian-born talent stays true to his original lo-fi feel, blending in with the San Fransisco indie sound seamlessly.
Live electronic music pioneer Big Gigantic is an obvious fit for Outside Lands. The Colorado-based duo’s music is as energetic as it is danceable, and they’ve already played everything from Coachella to Red Rocks. Next stop: The Bay.
SOB x RBE
The Vallejo rap group launched into the mainstream this year with “Anti” and are showing no signs of slowing down. They also appeared on the Black Panther soundtrack with “Paramedic!”
The full Outside Lands 2018 lineup will be announced April 3.
