The wait is over, San Francisco’s Outside Lands 2012 lineup was announced today. After lineup rumors swirled the internet all last week, Bay Area residents can rejoice in a star studded lineup that includes Metallica, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Jack White, Foo Fighters, and more. In its fifth and final year of the festival’s contract with the city, Beck returns as one of the original bands billed for the festival. Maybe after Outside Lands poured so much money into San Francisco’s economy they feels they’ve done their part.
