Chance The Rapper, Big Grams, J. Cole & More To Perform At Outside Lands Festival

blame it on Meka April 6, 2016

Another day, another festival lineup announcement.

In all honesty, I actually like hearing about the lineups for many of these mega-concerts I likely will not be attending myself. Why? Because they mark the unofficial return of longer days, pleasant nights, and — most important to me — that I don’t have to worry about or even look into my thick jackets closet for the next few months. While I admit that I prefer having one consistent stream of decent-to-hot temperatures like Los Angeles, there are many other reasons why I live in and prefer to stay in New York.

Because of this, however, there’s a high chance that I won’t make the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco, CA. Taking place August 5th-7th at Golden Gate Park, the Bay Area concert will bring out a plethora of performers, including:

  1. Chance The Rapper
  2. Big Grams
  3. J. Cole
  4. Kehlani
  5. Jidenna
  6. Anderson .Paak (with the Free Nationals)
  7. Hiatus Kaiyote
  8. Major Lazer
  9. Lionel Richie
  10. Lana Del Rey
  11. Miguel
  12. Vince Staples

I mean, they already had me at mini-golf, but then they throw Lionel Richie — a person who is on my bucket list of musicians I have to see perform — in the mix? Tickets go on sale April 7th on the Outside Lands website.
