Now in its fifth year, San Francisco's Golden Gate Park extravaganza will feature A-list veterans like Stevie Wonder, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Beck and Metallica, along with Jack White, Fitz & the Tantrums, Die Antwoord, the Kills, Foo Fighters, Sigur Ros, Justice, Norah Jones, Santigold, Big Boi, Grandaddy, Bloc Party, Fran Ferdinand, Amadou & Mariam, The Walkmen, Skrillex, Alabama Shakes, Explosions in the Sky, Tame Impala and Bomba Estereo.
