Just a little while ago, in a fantastic marketing move, Bonnaroo announced their 2012 lineup. By creating a playlist on Spotify, festival fans were able to see and listen to all the artists that are playing at this year’s festival. This is something that I have not ever seen before, and it’s pretty impressive in my opinion. For most music festivals recently, I’ve had to make my own playlist, picking out the songs for all the artists and that takes forever. For those who want to check it out, here’s the link: Bonnaroo Lineup Spotify
The lineup is great. Radiohead, The Beach Boys, and The Avett Brothers are some of the huge names along with The Shins and Bon Iver. I’m also pretty excited to see Ludacris, Childish Gambino, and Feist. The lineup is seriously stacked. Some of the smaller names include Blind Pilot, Ben Howard, and Gary Clark Jr. I could keep listing the great bands, but you can check out the lineup yourself here: http://lineup.bonnaroo.com.
Bonnaroo takes place in Manchester, TN on June 7-10 and tickets go on sale Saturday at Noon from Bonnaroo’s website. Cannot wait to sweat my face off and see some great music. Happy Valentine’s Day!
