If you're anything like us, you spend the months preceding Outside Lands obsessively planning every aspect of your festival experience only to have all that meticulous preparation fall apart the instant you actually set foot on the grounds because you see something shiny or hear something funky.

While it's inevitable that even the best laid plans of neon-clad hipsters and cargo-shorted festival bros often go awry, its still important to spend time figuring out the schedule of bands ahead of time so you don't have to make the decision of whether to see Skrillex or Amadou & Mariam on the spot.

Without planning you'll make the wrong decision (Skrillex) every time.

On Wednesday, the organizers behind San Francisco's biggest annual music festival released info on which artists are playing on what days. This list is the crucial first step for making a good Outside Lands battle plan.

Check out the full list after the jump:
