With the festival arriving next week, the Outside Lands Music Festival unveiled Tuesday its GastroMagic stage lineup, including segments with OutKast’s Big Boi, Big Freedia and San Francisco’s own U2 tribute band Zoo Station.

Celebrity chef Chris Cosentino, a San Francisco resident, leads a lineup that also includes Bravo’s “Top Chef” winner Stephanie Izard and “Top Chef” finalist Melissa King among others.

The GastroMagic stage features a variety of performances that mix food and celebrities.

Zoo Station will appear along with on the fest’s final day as part of a “Sunday Bloody Mary Sunday” segment that melds their covers with four versions of the title cocktail from Cole Valley’s Padrecito and flights from Baconland.

Big Boi, half of OutKast but on hand as one-third of the supergroup Big Grams with Phantogram, will do a “Skew it on the Bar-B” with chefs Jon Shook, Vinny Dotolo and Stuart Brioza.

For the third consecutive year, Big Freedia will host the “Beignets and Bounce” brunch segment, which will get people from the crowd twerking in order to earn some grub.

Other segments include a Prince ice cream tribute named “Raspberry Beret,” a DJ set from Major Lazer’s Jillionaire with Cosentino and Ra Ra Riot covering The Police in “Every Little Thing She Does Is … GastroMagic.”
