Hip-hop superstar Kanye West, who rented out San Fancisco’s ballpark last fall so he could propose to Kim Kardashian, will return to “The City By the Bay” in August to headline the seventh annual Outside Lands Festival. Joining the rapper atop the bill for the three-day fest will be Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Killers and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, among others.
The event will again take place in historic Golden Gate Park, August 8-10. This will mark West’s Outside Lands debut and Petty’s second as headliner — the last time was 2008.
