Bonnaroo 2009 Festival Lineup: Springsteen, Phish, Beasties Boys
UPDATE: February 3rd | 08:14am PST -- It's official: the 2009 Bonnaroo lineup has officially been released and it's not quite what the leaked 'fake' version anticipated!
This year's festival will feature performances by Bruce Springsteen, the Beatie Boys, Nine Inch Nails, Wilco, Snoop Dogg, Al Green, and many more.
Bonnaroo will be held June 11-14, 2009 in Manchester, Tennessee.
Tickets to the 2009 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will go on sale this Saturday, February 7, at Noon Eastern time through bonnaroo.com.
Other highlights from this year's incredibly diverse lineup include Erykah Badu, David Byrne, Bela Fleck & Toumani Diabate, Animal Collective, Raphael Saadiq, Santogold and a solo set by Elvis Costello.
In comparison to Coachella's decidedly retro offerings this year, Bonnaroo is definitely more contemporary music bang for the buck.
