The 2010 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this year will feature Weezer, Jay-Z, Dave Matthews Band and Flaming Lips performing Pink Floyd”s “Dark Side of the Moon” alongside Stardeath and White Dwarves.
In regards to the latter headliner: If there were such thing as cannabis futures, their price would have just shot straight off the charts.
Tickets are on sale now; the festival runs June 10-13 on farmland in Manchester, Tenn., 60 miles outside of Nashville.
The National, Zac Brown Band, Medeski Martin & Wood, The Melvins, Norah Jones, John Fogerty, Phoenix, Blues Traveler, The Black Keys, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jeff Beck, OK Go, Wale, Punch Brothers, Regina Spektor, Isis, Steve Martin (and his backing banjo band the Steep Canyon Rangers), Ingrid Michaelson, Mayer Hawthorne, Tokyo Police Club, The xx, Gwar, She & Him and others have also confirmed their participation.
Jay-Z is also on tap for this year’s Coachella Valley Music + Arts Festival in April.
Also, do you know what’s gonna be amazing? Daryl Hall with Chromeo. Just saying.
Organizers encouraged its artists to announce via various social networks — Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, the ilk — while Bonnaroo itself committed to an excruciatingly slow roll-out via its MySpace page… still going. We will post a link to the complete lineup as soon as there is one.
As previously reported, the Lips accidentally slipped that they were participating before today’s announcement.
