Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Jack White and the Foo Fighters lead the lineup for the fifth annual Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, which will invade San Francisco's Golden Gate Park from Aug. 10-12.

The 2012 fest marks the return of Metallica and Neil Young & Crazy Horse to their native city; last December, Metallica celebrated its 30th anniversary at the Fillmore in San Francisco. Meanwhile, Neil Young & Crazy Horse have reunited for a new album, "Americana," that is set for a June 5 release.

Outside Lands also marks the first announced major festival appearance for Wonder in 2012, after the R&B legend headlined the 2011 Austin City Limits festival and the 2010 Bonnaroo fest. Jack White continues making the festival rounds after being booked for Sasquatch! and Lollapalooza, while the Foo Fighters head to San Francisco two weeks before headlining the Reading and Leeds festivals this year.

Other notable artists on the Outside Lands 2012 lineup include indie hero Beck, beloved jam band Dispatch, reunited angular rockers Bloc Party and the buzziest of all buzz bands right now, Of Monsters and Men. And don't worry dance fans -- Skrillex, Justice and MSTRKRFT got you covered.

Tickets for this year's Outside Lands fest go on sale this Thursday (Apr. 19) at noon PST. Last year's festival boasted headliners Muse, Phish and Arcade Fire.
