There’s plenty of music to fulfill everyone’s tastes at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival June 7-10. Not only did Superfly Presents and A.C. Entertainment release a mammoth lineup today listing headliners Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish and The Beach Boys (with Brian Wilson), but the word is only half of the list has been revealed and you can expect more artist announcements in the coming weeks.
As with previous ’Roos you’ll find new artists as well as long-established performers on the lineup. The very long list includes Alice Cooper, The Roots, Feist, comedian Aziz Ansari, Black Star, a reunited Ben Folds Five, Flogging Molly. The Civil Wars, The Word featuring John Medeski, Robert Randolph and North Mississippi Allstars; and Spectrum Road featuring Medeski along with Cindy Blackman Santana, Jack Bruce, and Vernon Reid.
But we’re still only skimming Bonnaroo’s lineup. Also appearing will be Umphrey’s McGee, Mac Miller, Punch Brothers, Needtobreathe, Fitz And The Tantrums, Bad Brains and more.
How do you handle a lineup this massive? Bonnaroo wil lhave 13 stages with more than 125 bands and over 20 comedians.
There is also a YouTube angle witih Bonnaroo creating a partnership with the video website. Called Bonnaroo365, the channel features original programming, daily content and live performances.
