Bonnaroo Lineup and Ticket Information

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on February 9, 2011

 

Bonnaroo announced today the following:

 

We are getting very excited about the 10th edition of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and, now, at long last, we’re ready to start sharing some of the amazing things that we have in store for this year’s festival. We’ll start with the line up! Stay tuned this coming Tuesday, February 15, as we unveil many of the great artists that will be playing Bonnaroo 2011. So, be sure to visit us at www.bonnaroo.com to find out some of what we have in store.

We’ll put tickets on sale Saturday, February 19th at noon Eastern. As you may recall, our special Holiday Pre-Sale back in November sold out in record time…less than 2 hours…so plan to act fast. And, of course, our special payment plans will once again be offered for both GA and VIP tickets.

The 10th annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be held from June 9-12, 2011 on our beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. Get ready for an unforgettable four-day weekend with more than 150 of your favorite bands, top comedians, art, activities, workshops, vendors and much more, as we celebrate 10 amazing years of Bonnaroo! We can’t wait to have you join us down on the farm in June!

he official Bonnaroo lineup announcement hasn’t been announced yet — a publicist with the festival tells me that Feb. 15 is a good possibility — but for these last few days, let’s oscillate/speculate wildly and/or try to sort what we know from what we wish we knew/don’t know. For instance, the other night,Robert Plant announced from the stage that he and his Band of Joy will be playing in Manchester this summer. (They’re in Nashville to play War Memorial Auditorium tonight and tomorrow night.) RP and BOJ join Big Boi, Bruce Hornsby, Gregg Allman Blues Band, Black Star, Massive Attack and Robyn (!) in theunofficially-officially-confirmed column.

Lineup Rumors from Nashville News:

As always, ‘Roo-mors abound, if not as boundlessly as in years past. This is, after all, the big 10th anniversary, and the lid seems to be on pretty tight. However, according to one historically well-placed source, Arcade Fire (aka Vincent Moon’s least-favorite band) are a lock to headline Friday night. Names making the rounds as “likely” include My Morning Jacket, some incarnation of Les Claypool and/or Primus, Mumford & Sons, Girl Talk, Scissor Sisters, Cold War Kids, Best Coast and Fitz & the Tantrums, while some of the big names being bandied about with varying degrees of Hail Mary-ness include The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Daft Punk, U2, Pearl Jam, David Gilmour and Roger Waters, Dr. John (featuring the original Meters) and David Bowie.
