Bonnaroo 2010 lineup finalized: Jay-Z, Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews Band, and Stevie Wonder to headline
Attention, Mixers! The lineup for Bonnaroo 2010 was disseminated in an agonizingly slow process over at the Tennessee festival’s MySpace page all day today. (Every six minutes, an animated cuckoo clock went off, and another artist was spit out into a floating cloud.) That lineup is now final, and can be seen, along with my increasingly nutso updates, after the jump.
Who’s going? Who’s excited? And which of your dream acts got left off the list?

UPDATE, 7:16 p.m. PT: I am relatively upset that no one updated the header with Stevie Wonder. Just sayin’.
UPDATE, 5:19 p.m. PT: I must leave you to your own devices for a time, Mixers — I have a social engagement on the books. But I’ll be back in a bit to catch you up on whatever the clock reveals while I’m gone. If they spit out Stevie Wonder and I’m not here, can someone put his name in the header? Thanks.
UPDATE, 5:00 p.m. PT: Blues Traveler. Which I think one of you commenters mentioned like three hours ago. Next year, I hope they get awesome DJs to remix the cuckoo clock song.
UPDATE, 4:37 p.m. PT: In the time that it took me to drive home, they rolled out Brandi Carlile, and the glorious dichotomy of LCD Soundsystem and Kris Kristofferson.
UPDATE, 4:14 p.m. PT: Just when I’d fallen asleep in a puddle of dried Diet Coke and drool, up popped Miranda Lambert!
UPDATE, 3:47 p.m. PT: No offense to the latest adds — Here We Go Magic among them — but I feel like we’ve taken something of a detour into Sidestage Lane. Also, it is getting dark outside, and I am still sitting here watching this damn cuckoo clock.
UPDATE, 2:36 p.m. PT: Dead Weather added — is Jack White the first guy to play the ‘Roo three times with three different bands?
UPDATE, 2:33 p.m. PT: Billboard’s scoop on the Kings of Leon finally confirmed by the cuckoo clock.
UPDATE, 2:24 p.m. PT: Tori Amos, the Melvins, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band added. Time has lost all meaning.
UPDATE, 1:41 p.m. PT: If it’s possible, the ‘Roo just got hairier: country traditionalist Jamey Johnson and Akron rockers the Black Keys are on the clock. Also, They Might Be Giants. (But what’re we gonna do unless they are?)
UPDATE, 1:26 p.m. PT: Be they angels? Nay, they are but men — Tenacious D join the roster. Also, I have turned the sound off on the cuckoo clock.
UPDATE, 12:50 p.m. PT: Jeff Beck, and the flying flags of Dropkick Murphys. Meanwhile, Billboard has reported that Stevie Wonder and Kings of Leon will also be headlining. The cuckoo clock got scooped!
UPDATE, 12:18 p.m. PT: Bonnaroo shocker! Dave Matthews Band to play crunchy outdoor music festival! And in other Dave news, Rawlings!
UPDATE, 12:03 p.m. PT: Have been miraculously revived by addition of The National!
UPDATE, 11:50 a.m. PT: Fatigue setting in. I don’t even know who Neon Indian is.
UPDATE, 11:25 a.m. PT: I am going to be hearing this cuckoo clock music in my dreams. Oh, and Kid Cudi just popped up.
UPDATE, 11:01 a.m. PT: A bear just ate a robot to announce Gwar. Oh my x 2.
UPDATE, 10:42 a.m. PT: Jay-Z — who’s already headlining Coachella — was just added to the roster. Oh my.
