The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival announced its 2010 lineup today via a continually updated animation on the festival’s MySpace page. A new artist was announced every six minutes between 12 Noon and 9 PM… This novel, yet extremely drawn out announcement process was not well received by the online community.
This year’s biggest names are Jay-Z, DMB, Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, The Flaming Lips with Stardeath and White Dwarfs performing “Dark Side of the Moon”, and Weezer. This is probably the festival’s least jam-influenced set of headliners to date, but the festival still offers a few solid jamband staples, including Les Claypool, The Disco Biscuits, and Lotus. Overall, this lineup won’t get me to Tennessee this summer, but to each his own. Bonnaroo will announce a number of additional artists in the coming months including some big names, so stay tuned!
