Bonnaroo turns lineup announcement into all-day event


Most music festivals simply announce their lineups all at once. While that’s all well and good, I’m pleased that the coordinators behind this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival decided to take a different approach. Throughout the day, the festival slowly unveiled the acts on its Myspace. The shows run from June 10-13 in Machester, Tennessee.

The announcements came to a halt at 9 PM ET. A complete list of the bands and artists is after the jump.

Bonnaroo announces ’09 lineup’s PopWatch summarizes the Bonnaroo headliners, but you can see the full lineup here.

You’ve got your classic-rock powerhouses (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Elvis Costello), your reunited jam-band institution (Phish), your ’90s-survivor cult act (Nine Inch Nails), your rap elders (Snoop Dogg, the Beastie Boys), your old soul legend (Al Green), your new funk goddess (Erykah Badu), your country icons (Merle Haggard, Lucinda Williams) — and, of course, dozens of your top-tier indie rockers (Animal Collective, the Decemberists, TV on the Radio, Grizzly Bear)

The article didn’t even mention Wilco or David Byrne. That’s a nice lineup.

The festival runs from June 11th to the 14th. Tickets go on sale this Saturday.
