Outside Lands has revealed the 2018 lineup for its 11th installment in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park August 10-12.
Following a fervent 2017 edition of Gorillaz, The Who, and Metallica headlining, 2018 boasts a hefty onslaught of acts, and although the headliners see earlier appearances in the festival season — The Weeknd at Coachella and Janet Jackson at both Panorama and FYF Fest — the lineup remains rife with talent and excitement.
Mr. Carmack is a man of many talents. From creating an immersive sonic style all his own to curating a pop up featuring his original designs, the San Francisco native has proven that he has the ability to blend a multitude of skills and passions.
With his latest release, “everytime,” Mr. Carmack once again proves himself as a multi-dimensional artist. By blending elements of R&B, future bass, and old-school funk, Carmack gives listeners a perfect insight into his seemingly limitless creativity. In “everytime,” Mr. Carmack flips a sample from Rick James’ timeless classic “Mary Jane” to create a bold bridge between past and present.
Stephen Colbert is a big Chance The Rapper fan, and rightfully so. The Chicago activist has joined the television host at the Emmy Awards in 2017, performed a triumphant “Show Me Love” with Skrillex and Hundred Waters, as well as the debut of his Coloring Book hit single “Angels” on The Late Show. For his latest appearance on the show, Chano delivered a brand new, yet to be named piece alongside Canadian R&B standout Daniel Caesar.
In the same spirit as poetic pieces like his “Blessings” reprise and “The Other Side,” Chance gently crooned three new verses into the microphone, premiering an uplifting number marked by his characteristically nimble, inventive lyrical hopskotch. Chance admits to Colbert that the tune was written in a matter of days, also revealing that he’s been spending time in the studio at work on, “cooking up some yammers.”
This year has found Chance in the studio with Anderson .Paak, Future, and a rumored mixtape with Donald Glover might even be in the works too. Tempered with sweet new hymns like this, and Chance may have another Grammy-bound record on the way.
