With winter something of an afterthought in the wake of this year's warmer-than-average weather, it's time to start thinking about summer. It's time to start thinking about Bonnaroo.
Yes Bonnaroo, the eco-friendly musical and arts festival that takes place every year on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn. Last year, more than 80,000 people rocked out to more than 150 acts spread over 10 massive stages. Today, the lineup for the 11th Bonnaroo, taking place June 7-10, was announced, and it's clear that organizers will once again have their hands full.
This year's headliners include Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, recent Grammy winner Bon Iver and The Civil Wars.
Also, Punch Brothers, NEEDTOBREATHE, Fiz and The Tantrums, Yelawolf, Alabama Shakes, Flying Lotus, Battles, Dawes, Black Lips, Danny Brown, Phantogram, Bad Brains, The Kooks, Mimosa, Laura Marling, Dumpstaphunk, Gary Clark Jr., Das Racist, Delta Spirit, Kurt Vile, and The Angtlers have signed on to perform. More musical guests are Moon Taxi, Fruit Bats, Kathleen Edwards, Darondo, Orgone, Sarah Jarosz, Big Gigantic, Soja, Kvelertak, Soul Rebels, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Big Freedia, Mariachi El Bronx, The Lonely Forest, K. Flay, Here We Go Magic, EMA, White Denim, The Devil Makes Three, ALO, Blind Pilot, Grouplove, Ben Howard, The War On Drugs, Mogwai and Trampled by Turtles.
Tickets, which go on sale at noon Feb. 18, run from $234.50-$259.50, with a VIP package (includes special restroom and shower areas!) for $1,399.50. If you can't afford the cost all at once, Bonnaroo also has a convenient payment plan to alleviate sticker shock.
