Once a year, thousands make the pilgrimage to Manchester, Tennessee for four glorious, sticky, showerless days of music known as the Bonnarroo Music & Arts Festival. This year, Bonnaroo took a different approach to announcing their lineup; the organizers announced the bandsÂ one at a time via Bonnaroo’s MySpace page.
The bill is usually an amalgamation of jam bands, mainstream rock and hip hop acts and indie bands, as well as a few epic headliners.Â This year is no different, with acts ranging from legend Stevie Wonder to surprising collaborations from Daryl Hall (of Hall & Oates) and Chromeo and The Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs, who will perform “Dark Side of the Moon.”Â Â Other highlights include Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix, The Dead Weather, The National, Kid Kudi, Dr. Dog, Here We Go Magic and more.
Pick up your tickets here.Â Bonnaroo will take place June 10-13 in Manchester, TN.
