This year's gathering -- which will take place from June 10 to 13 at the festival's 700-acre homestead in Manchester, Tenn. -- will be headlined by Dave Matthews Band, Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder and, newly-crowned Grammy royalty, the Kings of Leon. There are a gazillion other, equally exciting artists rounding out the lineup, including Zac Brown Band, Jeff Beck, Dead Weather, Phoenix, Weezer, Avett Brothers, the National, Tori Amos, Les Claypool, Miike Snow, They Might Be Giants, the Black Keys and Tenacious D. And so on.
Bonnaroo prides itself on an eclectic lineup, which is a natural extension and progression from its jam band roots. The festival also boasts any number of "only at Bonnaroo" moments which, this year, may be topped by the appearance of Daryl Hall onstage with Chromeo ("filling in" for John Oates). As previously announced, the Flaming Lips will perform their twisted version of Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' during a late-night set with Stardeath and the White Dwarfs (who, by the way, are not to be confused with some of the wooks on the other side of the rail).
Only at Bonnaroo could reggae icon Jimmy Cliff appear on the same lineup as shock metal's GWAR with it feeling as natural as the organic produce sold in the festival's farmers market. Tickets are only available at the official website and you better snatch them when you can -- Bonnaroo has a history of selling out. And no, that's not a pun.
