Outside Lands organisers have finally unveiled the spectacular 2015 line-up for their eighth year, featuring headliners Elton John and Mumford And Sons. The event is set to bring its usual combination of music and munchies to San Francisco this August.
Joining Elton and Mumford are a range of equally exciting acts, both of the veteran and the up-and-coming variety. Man of the moment Sam Smith - whose already bagged a total of six awards this year, including four Grammys - will bring his pop genius to the stage, alongside The Black Keys who released their first chart-topping album last year, and Kendrick Lamar whose highly anticipated third album 'To Pimp A Butterfly' sailed to number one in both the US and the UK last week.
Taking place at San Francisco's famed Golden Gate Park from August 7th to 9th, Outside Lands will feature one of their most diverse line-ups yet. Brits' Critics' Choice award winner James Bay is listed on the bill, alongside 'Budapest' hitmaker George Ezra, Grammy winning soloist St. Vincent and Australian chart-topper Chet Faker. Punk rock legend Billy Idol will make an appearance, and there'll be more guitar based magic with German duo Milky Chance, folk sisters First Aid Kit, international rock trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra and psychedelic Aussies Tame Impala. Newcomers Natalie Prass and Ryn Weaver will make their mark on Outside Lands, plus Brit singer-songwriter Laura Marling who unveiled her latest album 'Short Movie' this month.

Dubbed 'the world's only gourmet rock festival', Outside Lands will also be providing some unique culinary experiences all associated with Californian culture. There's A Taste of the Bay Area, alongside a series of specific arrangements such as Wine Lands, Beer Lands, Choco Lands and Cheese Lands. Plus entertainment will be provided with the return of GastroMagic.
Tickets for the whole weekend are priced at $325 and will be on sale from March 26th 2015. Each ticket sale will see a donation to San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department.
