    San Francisco's Superfly Productions has announced the lineup of its long-planned Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival. Taking place from August 22-24 at the Golden Gate Park, the show will be headlined by Radiohead, Tom Petty and Jack Johnson. The rest of the lineup will be revealed in the coming weeks but Superfly president Jonathan Mayers promises a "strong and diverse" bill spread across five stages.

    "This has been a project we've been working on for almost three years," Mayers told Billboard.com. "We're going to produce something special here—something that maybe the Bay Area hasn't seen before."

    Tickets will go on sale by the end of the month, with a portion of the proceeds going to the preservation of the park itself, which has hosted everything from the Tibetan Freedom Concert to Peter Gabriel's WOMAD Festival over the years. One thing it hasn't hosted, however, is a show that eclipes the 6 p.m. mark. As Mayers explains it, "We're going until the 10 o'clock curfew on Friday and Saturday. It's a little bit earlier on Sunday. That alone will be special.

    He added, "While we stay aware of what's out there, I think our philosophy is to stay focused on what we're doing and just make it the best event it can be. I'm confident it will go great. And I'm sure the other events will do great as well—there's certainly room."
