    Outside Lands is getting a bit of a reputation.

    The annual three-day music festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park is once again showing it has a bit of an old soul when it comes to picking musical acts.

    A year after the likes of John Fogerty, Phish and Big Audio Dynamite headlined the show, Outside Lands 2012 lineup will again feature a healthy blend of old timers mixed in with current hit-makers.

    Tuesday festival organizers announced that this summer's biggest concert in the City will be headlined by Stevie Wonder, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Metallica, Beck and the Foo Fighters.

    The veteran singers will share the stage with younger acts like Jack White, Big Boi, Die Antwoord, Norah Jones, Passion Pit, the Kills and more.

    In all, Outside Lands named more than 60 artists who will perform Aug. 10-12 in Golden Gate Park.
    The first wave of tickets for the festival are already sold out but festival organizers said more will go on sale on Outside Lands website this Thursday at noon.
