Metallica, Gorillaz and Lorde will all play Outside Lands' 10th anniversary this August.

After weeks of speculation (and about a week of people buying rather pricey tickets regardless of who was playing), the lineup for this year's Outside Lands Music Festival, taking place Aug. 11 - 13 in Golden Gate Park, arrived this morning.

Headliners include Metallica, Lorde, the newly reunited Gorillaz, A Tribe Called Quest and The Who (in that requisite legacy act spot). Note that usually there are just three names in this top line, one for each night of the festival -- whom, we wonder, will be sharing the spotlight on a given evening? Big names farther down the poster include Solange, Queens of the Stone Age, Fleet Foxes, Little Dragon, Tove Lo... the list goes on. On the local tip (aside from, er, Metallica) it's nice to see the Bay Area's women represented with K. Flay, Kamaiyah, and The Shes.


With food, booze and comedy lineups still to come, three-day tickets ($375 or $795, depending on whether or not you're Very Important) go on sale this Thursday, April 6 at 10am right here.
