This story comes with a footnote, as we’re reporting news based on a Reddit source, which doesn’t guarantee impeccable journalistic integrity. Nevertheless, the news is worth posting. As we draw closer to the official Bonnaroo announcement, the lineup has allegedly become available early on the festival’s app. Although it’s very possible that the lineup leaked is, in fact, acurate, it also appears to be incomplete. The event’s headliners were not posted to the list. According to consequenceofsound.net, the festival will be headlined by Pearl Jam, LCD Soundsystem and Dead & Company (The Grateful Dead X John Mayer).
Notable electronic music acts listed in the apparent leak include Adventure Club, Cashmere Cat, Flosstradamus, Griz, Keys N Krates, RL Grime and Zeds Dead. Bonnaroo has grown into one of America’s premier, multi-genre festivals, and as such, consistently receives harsh criticism and sharp praise for their annual selection of talent. This year’s electronic acts seem to be in line with the current trends within festivals looking to diversify their rosters. The official lineup will be announced on Tuesday night’s episode of Conan. For more information about Bonnaroo, head over to the festival’s website.
