Outside Lands, San Francisco’s massive food festival (with a side of music from the likes of Childish Gambino and Paul Simon this year) is back from August 9 to 11 in Golden Gate Park. Food, beer, and wine offerings are once again impressive across the festival, and now the lineup for the Gastromagic Culinary Stage has been released, with stars including Anderson .Paak and Jessica Koslow of LA’s SQIRL fame taking the spotlight.

In past years, this culinary stage has literalized the idea that chefs are today’s rock stars — although, to update that adage for the 2019 Gastromagic lineup, it’s culinary Youtubers that make today’s real idols. This time, food magazine and media brand Bon Appétit is a programming partner with Outside Lands on Gastromagic: Editor-in-chief Adam Rappaport and personalities Andy Baraghani and Molly Baz will perform at the event, emceeing segments and competing in live culinary challenges. The full lineup is below.
