The Bonnaroo Music Festival began announcing its lineup today. While the mega-event, scheduled for June 10-13 in Manchester, Tenn., isn’t revealing details like showtimes and stages, it is presenting an almost endless list of acts, including Dave Matthews Band, Jay-Z, The Flaming Lips, John Fogerty, Jeff Beck, Bassnectar and Norah Jones.
