This year’s festival promises a musical mashup of some of America’s most popular artists …
The lineup for the 2014 music festival was released through a broadcasted announcement tonight, revealing all of the big names that will rock the stage in Manchester, Tenn. from June 12-15. Among those names is Kanye West, who hasn’t performed at Bonnaroo since he was booed at on stage during the event six years ago.
In 2008, the Grammy winner walked onto the festival stage nearly two hours past his scheduled 2:45 a.m. performance time and was greated by bleary-eyed fans’ chorus of boos and chants of “Kanye sucks.” Yikes! The hip-hop star blamed his tardiness on Pearl Jam running overtime, which then caused his camp to start assembling the stage set-up late. Joining Yeezy are superstars Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill, Phoenix, Elton John, Jack White, Skrillex and many, many more. Bonnaroo tickets go on sale this Saturday (Feb. 22) at noon, through the official festival website. Last year’s lineup was topped by Paul McCartney, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Mumford & Sons, who later had to bow out due to an injury to bassist Ted Dwane. Jack Johnson hopped in as a replacement headliner.
