As SFist correctly guessed yesterday, Childish Gambino and Kacey Musgraves are on there, along with Kygo, Flume, and Hozier. And we didn't see Lil Wayne or Twenty One Pilots coming.
Other notables: Santigold returns to OL after a couple years' absence, Leon Bridges, Toro y Moi, The Lumineers, Mavis Staples, and Cali bands Counting Crows, The California Honeydrops, and Blink-182.
But, alas, Lady Gaga is too busy, everybody, and The Strokes are skipping this one.
Tickets for the three-day music fest, which have been selling out earlier and earlier in recent years, will go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. PT. Sales of three-day passes ($385 GA, $815 VIP) start Thursday, with single-day tickets going up at a later date when the day-by-day lineups are announced. (Paul Simon may be the Sunday headliner, following the OL tradition of putting the "legacy" act on last — typically counter-programmed with someone who Gen Z wants to see on the Twin Peaks Stage. But you never know and he may end up being on Friday like McCartney was a few years ago.)
Also, notably, Simon's wife Edie Brickell is performing with her 90s band New Bohemians.
Here's the lineup:
Twenty One Pilots
Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals
Flying Lotus 3D
Better Oblivion Community Center
Toro y Moi
Judah & the Lion
Edie Brickell & New Bohemians
Nahko And Medicine For The People
The California Honeydrops
The Funk Hunters
Jupiter & Okwess
Stay tuned in the coming months for the lineup for the "Barbary" comedy tent, the GastroMagic culinary stage, and the always bougie food and beverage array.
As the New York Times once wrote, "There aren’t many better ways to enjoy the San Francisco summer sunshine than in Golden Gate Park, with a Napa red in one hand and a Korean burrito in the other, daydreaming along to a hazy groove from Tycho." What year did they go, 'cause, uh, sunshine?
