Another year – another season, mind – another music festival. When it gets old, you’ll be the first to know.

It’s hard to believe that the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is only three years young, but maybe that’s why it’s looking so good. The official lineup was announced today and things are ready and rearing to go this August 12-14. Stadium heavyweights Muse and Phish leading the pack with two sets, and such movers-and-shakers from Arcade Fire, MGMT, The Black Keys, The Decemberists and Erykah Badu, to our favorites Foster the People and oft-on-our-radar Grouplove and The Vaccines,  will take on the various stages at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA.

What’s that? You want more? Okay, why not – Deadmaus, OK Go, Tamaryn, Ghost Robot, Pajama Party and Ghost Robot will also perform; a most eclectic bunch, we say. Hooray for hot and sticky fun. The once again three-day event was pared down to two days last year for reasons not wholly beknownst to anyone at this point, but survey says that with the lineup this year it appears that the extra day was a very smart move.

Tickets go on sale this Thursday, April 14 at 12 noon PST. Check out the event’s official site for more information now before they do something silly, like sell out in ten minutes.
