Maybe they’ll bring out a holographic version of Cliff Burton when they play “Ride The Lightning” or “Creeping Death.”
Metallica — the band you love, and love to hate — will be one of the headliners for this year’s Outside Lands festival.
The fest is set for August 10 through August 12 in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.
Who else is playing? Likely no one you care about, ‘cept maybe for Foo Fighters, Explosions in the Sky, and — gasp — Skrillex.
Jack White is also booked, as is Steve Wonder, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Beck, Norah Jones, Sigur Ros, Justice, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, Grandaddy, and the latest it-band on everyone’s radar, the Alabama Shakes.
Billed as “the world’s only gourmet music festival,” Outside Lands pairs music with wine and food. Sounds right up Lars’ alley.
The event’s producers will donate a significant portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department. In addition, the festival will offer over 100 food and wine options including organic, kegged wine; food trucks and local vendors from over 50 local restaurants. Likewise, Wine Lands will celebrate over 30 of the region’s wineries.
Tickets for Outside Lands go on sale on April 19.
