Future, The Weeknd, Smokepurpp and More to Perform at 2018 Outside Lands Festival
The summer is looking like a hot one, and we're not talking about the weather. As the summer music festival liineups begin to roll out, fans will have plenty of opportunities to see their favorite artists nationwide. Today (April 3), Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco announces their star-studded festival list, and it's looking like one of the best ones yet.
The Weeknd, who just last week dropped a surprise project 'My Dear Melancholy,' will be headlining the festival, and is joined by heavy hitters like Future and N.E.R.D. SOB x RBE, who were featured on the Black Panther soundtrack, will also take the stage along with Goldlink, Smokepurpp and Caleborate.
This is the 11th annual Outside Lands Festival, which will take place as it usually does at the Golden Gate Park from August 10-12, 2018. As an interesting aside, the festival will have two female headliners for the first time, with Florence + The Machine and Janet Jackson accompanying The Weeknd for the top three headliners.
Though all the artists on the bill will be a treat for fans, The Weeknd has arguably had one of the biggest 2018's thus far. Dropping 'My Dear Melancholy,' with less than 24 hours notice, the project has quickly shot up the charts. He also released videos on Monday, April 2, for two of the standout tracks "Call Out My Name" and "Try Me."
Both general admission and VIP tickets for Outside Lands go on sale starting April 5 at 10AM PST. Check out the full lineup below.
