Bonnaroo’s Eclectic Lineup Includes Jay-Z, Weezer, Kid Cudi And More
The organizers of the Tennessee music festival Bonnaroo are making us sweat it out sloooowly by revealing the lineup for this year’s fest one act at a time on their MySpace page. But they’ve finally dribbled out enough names to get us pumped: Jay-Z, Weezer, Kid Cudi, Kings of Leon, Wale, Dave Matthews Band and Norah Jones are a few of the big names on this year’s incredibly eclectic lineup. Check out the announced performers after the jump (and we’ll be updating as more and more acts are revealed): The Avett Brothers The Flaming Lips with Stardeath and White Dwarfs in a performance of “Dark Side of the Moon” Weezer Medeski Martin and Wood John Fogerty Cross Canadian Ragweed Ingrid Michaelson Phoenix The xx Regina Spektor Mayer Hawthorne & the County Wale Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers Norah Jones Bassnectar OK GO Monte Montgomery Jay-Z Punch Brothers Thievery Corporation GWAR She & Him Jimmy Cliff Tokyo Police Club Kid Cudi Japandroids Dr. Dog The National Zac Brown Band Dave Matthews Band Dave Rawlings Machine Local Natives Dropkick Murphys Manchester Orchestra Jeff Beck Jay Electronica The Postelles Carolina Chocolate Drops Rebulution Damien Marley & Nas Needtobreathe Tenacious D The Black Keys Jamey Johnson They Might Be Giants The Entrance Band Nitty Ditty Dirt Band Lotus Clutch Tori Amos The Melvins The Dodos Kings of Leon The Dead Weather Rise Against Deadmau5 Martin Sexton Blitzen Trapper The Gaslight Anthem Mumford & Sons Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue Baroness Julia Nunes Here We Go Magic Tinariwen The Disco Biscuits Diane Birch Lucero Isis Miranda Lambert LCD Soundsystem Brandi Carlile B.O.B.

Also a headliner for this year’s Coachella, Jay-Z must have gotten a taste for festivals after fronting the bill at Glastonbury in 2008. Is Hova in danger of becoming the Jack Johnson of 2010?
Head out to Manchester, Tennessee from June 10-13 to check out all these acts at this year’s Bonnaroo.
