The Full Outside Lands Food Lineup for 2016

Plus 28 breweries and 40 wineries will be on hand

Tom Tomkinson/Outside Lands

Outside Lands 2016 is on the horizon, bringing three days of dreamy festival revelry to Golden Gate Park for the ninth year in a row. On August 5-7, headliners like Radiohead, Lionel Richie and LCD Soundsystem will draw major crowds; however, the festival has become one serious destination for food lovers in its own right.

Throw in a freakishly good lineup of beer at Beerlands, curated by Dave McLean (owner of Magnolia Brewing Company) and wine lineup from Peter Eastlake (Food and Wine's Sommelier of the Year 2014), and it's game on. And of course, the offbeat GastroMagic stage (where Big Freedia has twerked and thrown beignets into the crowd in past years) will be back, with its own soon-to-be-revealed lineup. Basically, if there's a reason to be smug about living in San Francisco, this would be it. Here's the breakdown of what to eat in between sets at this year's OSL:

NEW: Outside Clams

First, hats off to whoever came up with the inspired title for OSL's newest culinary experience, Outside Clams. Woodhouse Fish Co. is leading the charge, offering raw and BBQ oysters, lobster rolls and clam chowder galore in what might be the first (and only) time you'll want to consume seafood at a music festival.

A Taste of the Bay Area: The full list of vendors

(* indicates newcomers)

There's a healthy crew of new vendors, including lots more coffee from the likes of Four Barrel and Artis. Fans of recently departed Il Cane Rosso can get a quick fix of their fried egg sandwiches, and Bini's Kitchen is bringing the momos to the party, while Itani Ramen will warm up crop top-wearing Millennials with bowls of ramen. It's going to be a feast, so strap on that flower crown and go hungry.
