Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

Wowsa, this here's a way to debut a new music festival. The list of talent is for the innaugural Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Fran Aug. 22-24. Tickets are on sale March 30, if you can be anywhere near this event then. I'm just jealous of any city that can use the phrase "local acts such as Primus" in a press release.

This event, by the way, is co-founded by the Bonnaroo festival planners. Maybe that's why the billing sounds like Bonnaroo's Greatest Hits 2005-2008.

On the bill: Radiohead, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jack Johnson, Beck, Wilco, Manu Chao, Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals,Widespread Panic, Primus, Steve Winwood (what the...?), Broken Social Scene, Regina Spektor, Cold War Kids, Andrew Bird, M. Ward, Drive-By Truckers and many more.
