Outside Lands announces daily schedule for 2016

Outside Lands

Festival organizers released the schedule Thursday for the ninth annual Outside Lands Music Festival in Golden Gate Park.

Headliners LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead and Lionel Richie will close down the Lands End main stage on the Polo Field on Aug. 5, 6 and 7, respectively.

On the Twin Peaks stage in Golden Gate Park’s Hellman Hollow on the opposite side of the festival, rapper J. Cole, electronic dance musician Zedd and pop singer Lana Del Rey will appear as the final act Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Del Rey, best known for the hits “Summertime Sadness” and “Video Games”  as well as her legions of dedicated fans nicknamed “Lanatics,” marks a departure for the festival-closing spot on the Twin Peaks stage. For five consecutive years, EDM acts helmed the final night of the Twin Peaks stage, with deadmau5 (2011), Skrillex (2012), Kaskade (2013), Tiësto (2014) and Axwell^Ingrosso (2015).

Among fans on the Reddit forum for the festival, Saturday’s scheduling conflict between upstart R&B crooner Anderson .Paak and Radiohead as well as Friday night’s counterprogramming between LCD Soundsystem, Sutro Stage’s Beach House, Twin Peaks’ J. Cole and Panhandle Stage’s Hiatus Kaiyote drew some of the biggest ire.

The later in each day, the more marquee names that conflict. To see the complete schedule or build your own, visit the festival’s official site.
