Outside Lands SF 2011 Lineup Revealed

April 11, 2011

San Francisco’s big summer music festival, Outside Lands, just released their lineup for 2011. Hip-hop is well-represented again, and features among the headliners Erykah Badu, the Roots, and Big Boi. The festival returns to its 3-day format, and will be held August 12-14. Jamaica is also well-represented, with Major Lazer, featuring Diplo and Switch, and Collie Buddz. Girl Talk will also headline, if you haven’t had your fix of UGK and Ke\$ha blends. Longtime Bay Area heads should perk a bit that Latyrx, the duo of Lyrics Born and Lateef, are reuniting for the festival. Hip-Hop.com featured artist Ana Tijioux returns to the Bay. And you might not have heard of Macklemore, but the Seattle emcee and his partner on the boards Ryan Lewis may be the city’s newest nationally emerging hip-hop act. 3-Day passes will go on sale April 14 at sfoutsidelands.com.
