Every summer, audiophiles descend on Golden Gate Park for Outside Lands, a weekend of stuffing your face full of churros, sipping whiskey on blankets, getting lightly trampled, having at least one crippling case of agoraphobia, and, oh yeah, listening to tons of live music. Last year, Kanye West, Tom Petty, Macklemore, and Disclosure rocked it out, and this year's roster is just as good!

Elton John is set to continue the trend of an English Sir headlining (Paul McCartney did the honors at Outside Lands two years ago). Sam Smith and D'Angelo, a.k.a. the voices to which innumerable babies have been conceived, will romance the pants off you. If you want to propose to your boo, maybe you can convince Billy Idol to let you on stage during "White Wedding." Kendrick Lamar, fresh off his amazing surprise album, will be there to blow your mind. And Mumford & Sons and Wilco will be representing the folksy set. I could go on about how pumped you should be, but the power of music does it so much better, so here's a mix to get you ready for Outside Lands 2015!
