Outside Lands has come along way from the time the area received its nickname. 130 years ago, Outside Lands was an uninhabitable and inaccessible patch of sand dunes. Today, the beautiful state park is host to one of the West Coast’s largest music festivals, held annually in San Francisco.

As announced today (April 16), the 2013 Outside Lands headliners will include Paul McCartney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails and Phoenix. It’s worth pointing out that all the headliners have performed at or been announced as headliners at upcoming summer music festivals, with the Chili Peppers and Phoenix having headlined Coachella, NIN at Lollapalooza and Made in America, and Macca at Bonnaroo.

Joining the headliners will be an eclectic group of alternative, electronic and rock acts including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend, D’Angelo, Hall & Oates, Willie Nelson, Kaskade, The National, Jurassic 5 and Matt & Kim performing on multiple outdoor stages.

The festival, which takes place over three days from August 9-11, will take over most of San Francisco’s historic Golden Gate Park Polo Grounds.

Three day general admission and VIP tickets go on sale Thursday, April 18 at 12:00 p.m. PDT at sfoutsidelands.com.

Additional artists, restaurants and wineries will be announced in the coming weeks, according to the show’s promoter.
