February 19, 2014 § Leave a comment
Next to Coachella, Southern favorite Bonnaroo is arguably the most anticipated summer music festival in the United States – and guess what? The official 2014 lineup is finally here, and it’s the best one yet!
After being banned due to his infamous 2008 performance, Kanye West will join Jack White and Elton John as headliners. But the biggest shocker is the absence of a reunited rap duo set to take over the festival season – Outkast. That’s a pretty bold move, Bonnaroo! The lineup was announced during a huge superjam party titled “Bonnaroo Line-Up Announcement Megathon,” or B.L.A.M.! for short, which was hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam.
This year’s lineup boasts over 125 of music’s favorite and most talented acts, including: The Flaming Lips, CHVRCHES, Disclosure, Chance The Rapper, Janelle Monae, Frank Ocean, Danny Brown, Arctic Monkeys, Lionel Richie, Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Banks, Kaskade, Wiz Khalifa, Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Pusha T, Chromeo, Cage the Elephant, Zedd, Poliça, A$AP Ferg, Broken Bells, Lauryn Hill, Classixx, Ms Mr, Skrillex, Phoenix, Die Antwoord, Capital Cities and tons more!
Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will take place from June 12-15 at the Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee.
