    Gnarls and QOTSA are headlining every other date and Ghostland is only in Atlanta.

    Last year Flaming Lips was just the headliner every tour date. it had Z-Trip, Galactic and other bands at different cities.

    Well, I don't think Black Keys is their only big band to play this year. I hope not. They have gotten tons of good bands to play here in San Diego for free and great SoCo drink specials lol.

    what it does mean?: if we watch who their lineup is, it shows who will be a part of the outside lands festival. not all groups but some so the black keys looks like they could be in.

    Went to the one in San Diego last year there were a handful of bands...the only ones I remember and were remotely worth remembering were Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Z Trip and The Flaming Lips (who were awesome and fun as usual). Glad they're doing a repeat.
