Public Enemy, Ani DiFranco, Shadows Fall, Janelle Monae and, go figure, Jimmy Fallon, have been added to the line-up for the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
The three-day concert takes place June 11-14 in Manchester, Tenn. Other new additions include the Itals, Wailing Souls, Amadou & Mariam, Murs, High On Fire, Pretty Lights, Tony Rice, Passion Pit, Hockey and White Rabbits.
Fallon is one of a number of comedians who will play the festival as part of “The Comedy Sweet,” an air-conditioned venue (ensuring its popularity). Among the other comics are Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Tom Barry, John Oliver, Nick Thune and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (okay, we’re applying the ‘comic’ term loosely here).
Among the already -announced performers are Bruce Springsteen, Phish, Beastie Boys, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Wilco, TV on the Radio and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. Go to www.bonnaroo.com for the full line-up.
