Bonnaroo Lineup Announced

The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival released its "initial lineup" in annoying dribs and drabs (and tweets) yesterday, and after the excruciating eight hour new media exercise came to a close, the preliminary list is finally in. There's a lot to like about the June 10-13 mother of all contemporary camping festivals, from Stevie Wonder to the Avett Bros. to LCD Soundsystem to Gaslight Anthem to She & Him to Jimmy Cliff to the Dead Weather to Miranda Lambert to The xx to Kid Cudi to Baaba Maal to the Flaming Lips with Stardeath and White Dwarfs performing Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon.

There's a batch of big names: Jay-Z, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon, Steve Martin, Dave Matthews Band, Weezer, Jeff Beck. And an interesting troika of Philadelphia or Philadelphia-connected artists, in UPenn grads The Disco Biscuits, pop rockers Dr. Dog (whose Shame, Shame comes out on April 6) and Daryl Hall, who will be teaming up with Hall & Oates loving electro funk duo Chromeo (that's them). This could be the year for a road trip to Manchester, Tenn. It'll be warm there. The whole list (so far) is here.
