Conan O’Brien was the embodiment of music festival hype for a few days — but just a few. With the buzz surrounding Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem reuniting to blow thousands of mud-covered minds at (insert expensive and stinky festival name here), he held the keys to the kingdom of Bonnaroo. Only Conan, with his coifed hair, knew who would be playing Bonnaroo 2016. Fingers were at the ready, tickets would be bought as soon as Conan unveiled the list… But then the lineup leaked, and Conan was (probably) sad.
Don’t worry, Conan still has some information beyond what was already placed unceremoniously on the interwebs. We know that LCD Soundsystem, Pearl Jam, Dead & Company (John Mayer and members of The Grateful Dead) will play twice. The rest of the bands are:
Tame Impala, Death Cab for Cutie, M83, Haim, Chvrches, Miguel, Father John Misty, Tyler the Creator, Vince Staples, Kurt Vile & the Violators, Ween, Blood Orange, Shamir, Mavis Staples, J. Cole, Purity Ring, Big Grams (Big Boi & Phantogram), Dungen, Ellie Goulding, Kamasi Washington, Chris Stapleton, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Twin Peaks, Natalie Prass, Hundred Waters, Waxahatchee, Beach Fossils, Leon Bridges, FIDLAR, and a band called The Claypool Lennon Delirium.
Is it one of the Lennon sons and Les Claypool of Primus? Oh yeah, and Judd Apatow will be there. The cast of Freaks and Geeks will not be there.
All of this is proven true by the official poster:
