Organizers behind the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee announced the dates and official line-up of the 2010 event this week.
The ninth annual four-day camping and music festival will be held on from June 10th through the 13th on the same 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee — 60 miles south of Nashville.
The final Bonnaroo 2010 line-up will total over 125 bands and over 20 comedians performing on 13 stages over four days.
Headliners this year include Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, the Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon, Damian Marley & Nas, Norah Jones, Weezer and Michael Franti & Spearhead, among others.
Supporting acts include Wale, Kid Cudi, Jay Electronica, and B.o.B., amidst countless other rock and electronic acts.
Bonnaroo has become one of the largest and most revered music and camping event in the country. It has elevated the American rock festival to an unprecedented level.
The event has offers its attendees the amenities and community spirit of a small city, with 24 hours of activities including a comedy theater, cinema festival, jazz club, silent disco, arcade, Internet cafÃƒÂ©s, restaurants, yoga classes and hundreds of high quality craft vendors.
The Wall Street Journal called Bonnaroo “one of rock’s best festivals,” continuing to hail that the 2009 lineup “fairly bursts with some of the most gifted acts in rock and pop.” Entertainment Weekly called it “the best of all sonic worlds,” while the New York Times said, “One of the pleasures of the festival is that it defies narrowcasting: It’s not an Americana festival, an indie-rock festival, a gathering of 2008-9 hitmakers or anything but what its producers and, presumably, ticket-buyers are happy to hear.” Rolling Stone called Bonnaroo “one of the 50 moments to change the history of rock and roll.”
Once again for 2010, Bonnaroo has created a few ticketing options for its fans. The festival is offering a special payment plan in which tickets will be available for five payments of $50.00, plus applicable fees. In addition, fans will have the option to purchase a Bonnaroo Green Ticket that will help to support the development and implementation of sustainable improvements at the festival for years to come.
