Outside Lands’ Full 2018 Lineup Includes Headliners The Weeknd and Florence + The Machine

(Senny Mau)

Having teased us with hints comprised of close-up shots of images pertinent to various acts, Outside Lands has released its lineup for 2018. While we already knew that Janet Jackson was going to be the 11-year-old music-and-food festival’s first female headliner, we know now The Weeknd and Florence + The Machine will also close out an evening on the main stage.

It’s a well-rounded undercard lineup, too. While it’s far from achieving gender parity, the imbalance between men and women is considerably reduced, and there’s a great mix of indie rock and hip-hop, new acts and veterans, and quiet and loud. This year we get Beck, Bon Iver, Broken Social Scene, Caleborate, Carly Rae Jepsen, Chicano Batman, Chromeo, CHVRCHES, Claptone, DJ Snake, Father John Misty, Future, The Growlers, The Internet, James Blake, Jamie xx, Jessie Ware, Mac DeMarco, N.E.R.D., ODESZA, Perfume Genius, Poolside, Portugal. The Man, Shannon & The ClamsTash Sultana, and Tycho.

Huey Lewis & the News! The spiritual forerunners to Smash Mouth, except not remotely as terrible (and when are you ever going to see them again?)

General admission and VIP tickets alike go on sale this Thursday, April 5, at 10 a.m. PST — and it’s sold out every year since 2010, so don’t dawdle. This year, for the first time, Outside Lands has a 3-Day GA Layaway Plan that lets you pay for your wristband in four installments, and the full food and drink roster will be announced in the near future. 

Whatever you do, always remember you’re only going to be able to see about six or eight acts per day at the very most, so you never want a lineup that’s 100-percent full of your heroes and crushes — or else you’ll be torn and plagued with crippling FOMO.
