A few acts not to miss at Outside Lands 

Jessie Ware

A bona fide star in her native U.K., Ware — somewhere between Adele and Goldfrapp — is noted for her elegant, soulful synthpop. [3:25 to 4:15 p.m. Friday, Sutro Stage]


Formerly known for rough, raw lo-fi rock, the band's frontman Nathan Williams goes 1990s dream pop on its latest album "Afraid of Heights." [6:15 to 6:55 p.m. Friday, Panhandle Stage]

The Growlers

The California surf rock band's latest album "Hunt at Heart" is packed with the group's signature lazy, hazy sound. [3:25 to 4:10 p.m. Saturday, Sutro Stage]


Fans of Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, and MGMT may dig this Oxford, England, band that blends rich, folksy vocals with sophisticated synthpop and guitar shredding with touches of early U2 and Muse. [2:50 to 3:50 p.m. Sunday, Lands End Stage]

King Tuff

Kyle Thomas' nasal vocals recall a young Sean Lennon, but his mosh-pit-friendly band makes neopsychedelic, heavily distorted garage rock akin to Ty Segall. [4:25 to 5:05 p.m. Sunday, Panhandle Stage]

Matt & Kim

Rock's happiest duo continues on its indie power-pop trajectory, using rave synths on its most recent recording "Lightning." [6:45 to 7:35 p.m. Sunday, Twin Peaks Stage]
