This is almost too neat to be an accident. The Outside Lands 2010 lineup was supposed to be a secret until tomorrow, but both Spin and Rolling Stone broke the two-day festival's headliners in issues that dropped last week.
SFist has the full run-down on the Spin leak, which came not in the form of an ad (as was originally reported) but rather in a blurb in the magazine's summer festival guide that mentions Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, Phoenix, The Gossip, Al Green and Black Star.
Meanwhile, the June 10 issue of Rolling Stone, which hit our mailbox last Wednesday, includes a festival guide with a neato map that mentions Furthur — the new band of Grateful Dead figureheads Phil Lesh and Bob Weir — along with Phoenix, Kings of Leon and Al Green as headliners for Outside Lands. The map is on page 36 of the issue with Russell Brand writhing on the cover.
Curiously enough, the two mags don't agree on ticket prices… or dates. Spin says ticket prices are “to be determined” — and that the festival runs from August 13-15. Rolling Stone writes that tickets will run from $75 to $140, and correctly gives the festival dates as August 14 and 15.
The full Outside Lands lineup will be unveiled tomorrow. Here's hoping for some more exciting additions.
