Outside Lands returns to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park Aug. 10-12 with a heady mix of music, art, comedy, food, and drinks. Tickets go on sale Thursday and have a habit of selling out.

This year's edition features The Weeknd, the Canadian-Ethiopian R&B artist; Florence + The Machine, the powerful indie songstress; and legacy act Janet Jackson. Rounding out the top of the lineup are EDM acts ODESZA and DJ Snake; rapper Future; indie stars Beck and Bon Iver; and radio hit-makers Portugal. The Man and CHVRCHES. Oh, and Carly Rae Jepsen of "Call Me, Maybe" fame.

While the major hip-hop presence is pretty light this year, there's also some exciting East Bay representation in Vallejo's rising star rap group SOB X RBE and Berkeley-bred rapper Caleborate. Other East Bay locals include favorite rockers Shannon & The Clams and Oakland singer-songwriter Dick Stusso.

For the first time, Outside Lands will offer a "layaway plan" option for three-day general admission tickets that allows folks to pay in four installments.
