The newly reunited Beach Boys have announced their first summer date, and will be sharing the marquee with Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Phish at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
The 11th annual, four-day event also boasts a roster including newly minted Grammy Award winners Bon Iver and Skrillex, the Shins, the Avett Brothers, Black Star, Alice Cooper and Feist. Aziz Ansari leads the comedy lineup and another SuperJam has been added — last year, it was the combo of Dr. John and Dan Auerbach. All confirmed acts are listed below.
Bonnaroo runs June 7-10, with tickets going on sale on Saturday (Feb. 18) at noon EST via bonnaroo.com.
Once organizers are finished announcing all acts, it will equal out to more than 125 artists and more than 20 comedians. The fest welcomes back a cinema, a silent disco, a beer garden and multiple food and drink vendors, along with a “salon, sustainable gardening lessons, arcade, Internet cafés and yoga classes.”
Bonnaroo has also announced a new partnership with YouTube for Bonnaroo365, which will run archival interviews and performances along with new material culled from the fest. Additionally, fans can check out music from 2012 Bonnaroo artists at their Spotify playlist.
