Bonnaroo Reveals Lineup

Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Bjork are some of the acts topping this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.  But wait, there’s more.  Lots more.

Bonnaroo promoters Superfly and A.C. Entertainment made their announcement today in a little something they called B.L.A.M! (Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon) that featured “Weird Al” Yankovic standing on a set where people manned phone banks a la a PBS telethon.  But instead of accepting donations, they were giving each caller one name from the lineup.

As in past years, the initial Bonnaroo lineup announcement appears to stretch all the way to the horizon.  This year’s seemingly endless list includes Wilco, Pretty Lights, ZZ Top, R. Kelly, Wu-Tang Clan, Daniel Tosh, The National, The Lumineers, David Byrne & St. Vincent, Passion Pit, The xx, Kendrick Lamar, Grizzly Bear, Animal Collective, and Of Monsters And Men.  And, of course,“Weird Al” Yankovic.

But it doesn’t end there.  Heck, we’re just scratching the ‘Roo surface.  Thankfully, the folks at Bonnaroo have enlisted Daniel Tosh to give you the complete rundown.

Of course, you can always visit the Bonnaroo website for the complete list.  Tickets go on sale Feb. 23 at 12 p.m. EST.  Click here for more information.
