Bonnaroo 2017: The Weeknd, U2 To Headline

Bonnaroo is the latest festival to announce its 2017 lineup, and this year the Tennessee gathering will be headlined by The Weeknd, flanked by legacy rock acts U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers in the other headline slots.

I know he’s been a star for a couple years now, but it’s still wild to think that The Weeknd has ascended to megastar, discussed-in-the-same-breath-as-U2 status. For Bono and co., it’s their first-ever US festival headline spot, and they’ll be performing their classic 1987 LP The Joshua Tree in full, to go along with this year’s tour celebrating the album’s 30th anniversary.

Chance The Rapper (who’s headlining Gov Ball), festival mainstays Major Lazer, Lorde (also on the lineup at Coachella and Gov Ball, so yeah that new album’s coming), Travi$ Scott, Tove Lo, Tegan and SaraD.R.A.M.Dua Lipa and Francis & The Lights are among the 100 or so acts filling out the lineup.

It takes place June 8-11 in Manchester, Tennessee, and tickets are on sale now. Check out the full lineup and poster below.
