Just minutes ago, Weird Al Yankovic hosted BLAM (the Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon). During this live web stream, Weird Al revealed the lineup one by one to this year’s Bonaroo. Now with the “lineup announcement” portion done, let’s take a look at who’ll be playing the three-day June festival.
Staying true to its reputation, Bonnaroo’s lineup features everyone from Paul McCartney to R. Kelly, Mumford & Sons to ZZ Top, Tom Petty to Wu Tang Clan and many others. Meanwhile, Baroness are one of the sole heavy acts on the bill (not counting Billy Idol… yup, he’ll be there as well). Not only have they won over crowds at past Bonnaroo festivals, but this might mark Baroness’ first performance as a full band since last year’s horrific bus accident. Plus, when can you say you’ve previously seen a festival bill bearing both Baroness and Björk’s names?
Check out a complete rundown of bands confirmed for Bonnaroo 2013 thus far after the jump.
