After Coachella, the deluge.

Organizers of San Francisco's Outside Lands announced the music festival's 2014 lineup early Tuesday, mere days before Coachella will informally open the crowded summer festival season on Friday in Indio.

Top acts set to appear at the seventh annual Outside Lands, which this year goes down Aug. 8-10 at Golden Gate Park, include Kanye West, the Killers and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, described in a news release as the first act to headline the festival twice. (Petty and his rootsy road band performed at the inaugural Outside Lands in 2008.)

A number of artists on Coachella's bill are to return to California in August: Disclosure, Duck Sauce, Haim and Grouplove will play Outside Lands, along with non-Coachella-bound acts such as Arctic Monkeys, Death Cab for Cutie, Spoon, Lykke Li, Kacey Musgraves and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. See the full lineup here.

Other high-profile festivals scheduled for the coming months include Washington's Sasquatch!, which like Coachella will feature the reunited OutKast, and Tennessee's Bonnaroo, where West will share headliner status with another veteran rocker, Elton John.
