*Updated w/ line up*
After rounding up Radiohead, Beck, Tom Petty, and he whose name shall not be spoken for its inaugural edition last year, San Franciscos Outside Lands Music Festival will return for a second go around, once again providing all those festival junkies a pretty stellar way of capping off their summer.
Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and the Beastie Boys will head Outside Lands 2009, scheduled for August 28-30 at San Franciscos Golden Gate Park. Other acts of note include Tom Jones (wtf? Awesome!), The Mars Volta, TV on the Radio, Modest Mouse, Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz, M.I.A, Thievery Corporation, Incubus and Ween.

This year, organizers promise quite a number of improvements, or should I say more of everything for the three-day weekend, including more local restaurants, more wine, more eco-initiatives, and most importantly, more music with a longer Friday.
Three-day and VIP passes will be available beginning April 15th via sfoutsidelands.com.
