Bonnaroo 2012 Lineup Announced
Radiohead, Phish, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Beach Boys will headline this year's music festival, taking place June 7-10.
NEW YORK -- Radiohead, Phish, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the reunited Beach Boys will head to Manchester, Tenn. this June for the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The initial lineup for the annual festival, which takes place from June 7-10 this year, was announced on Tuesday.
Radiohead will return to the 'Roo after delivering an epic set at the 2006 version of the festival and releasing The King of Limbs last year. Meanwhile, Phish headlined two nights of Bonnaroo in 2009, and closed out 2011 by selling out four straight at New York's Madison Square Garden from Dec. 28-31.
Red Hot Chili Peppers, who returned in 2011 with a new full-length, I'm With You, have planned an expansive North American tour for the spring to support their first album since 2006's Stadium Arcadium. And the Beach Boys will continue the 50th anniversary celebration that they began with a performance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, with Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks all signed on for Bonnaroo.
Other notable acts at this year's festival include dubstep phenom Skrillex, best new artist Grammy winner Bon Iver, hip-hop heavyweights like Ludacris and the Roots, and a reunited Ben Folds Five. Tickets for the four-day festival go on sale this Saturday at noon via Bonnaroo's official web site.
