U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers Among the Headliners For the Bonnaroo Festival

by VVN Music

We're in the middle of the announcement season for all of this summer's music festivals and, on Wednesday, we heard the initial lineup for Bonnaroo.

Set for June 8 to 11 in Manchester, TN, the lineup is topped by two veteran acts, U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers while the Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, Major Lazer and Lorde are also listed as major acts for the weekend. Final schedule and headliners will be announced at a later date.

For fans of older artists, once you get past the first two names on the announcement list, you're almost out of luck. Outside the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Angelique Kidjo, who are both listed fairly deep in the bill, and the "almost veterans" Umphrey's McGee (19 years of recording), there are few artists whose career would go back ten years much less twenty.

Tickets for the festival are already on sale at their official website.

The top names on the lineup:
  • U2
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • The Weeknd
  • Chance the Rapper
  • Major Lazer
  • Flume
  • Lorde
  • The xx
  • Travis Scott
  • Cage the Elephant
  • Marshmello
  • The Head and the Heart
  • Big Gigantic
  • Glass Animal
  • Future Islands
  • Tory Lanez
  • Tove Lo
  • Crystal Castles 
  • Umphrey's McGee
  • Tegan & Sara
