Bonnaroo lineup announced: Mumford, McCartney, and more
This summer, the sons of London and Liverpool will descend upon Manchester — Tennessee, that is.
The annual rustic revel known as Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has announced this year’s lineup, with Paul McCartney and Mumford & Sons topping the bill for the June event. Other topline guests on the docket include Bonnaroo veterans Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Icelandic export Björk.
Mumford & Sons, who this month snagged the Album of the Year prize at the Grammys, won’t be the only folk group packing their suspenders: The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, and Glen Hansard are also slated to play.
Of course, the full lineup for the four-day event, going down June 13-16 at its usual Tennessee stomping grounds, gets more diverse as you go down the list: Wilco, R. Kelly, the Wu-Tang Clan, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, David Byrne & St. Vincent, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Grizzly Bear, Nas, Earl Sweatshirt, and ZZ Top are just some of the acts who’ll be heading to the farm.
And, of course, that’s just the start. Watch Daniel Tosh reveal the entire lineup in the official Bonnaroo video below:
