    It's the best lineup they've ever had, but the EDM is godawful and so is the hip-hop, which is unusual for Bonnaroo. The inclusion of stuff like Mastodon and Deafheaven is sweet, but the "big" names on the lineup have been everywhere the past two years. I like it, don't love it.

    I like their hip-hop this year. Kanye, Pusha T, Ice Cube, Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill. Chance the Rapper, Danny Brown, Wiz, A$AP Ferg, are all decent.


    This will be good, too

    I'm planning on making this my first Roo finally. I really wanted to go last year but I had to be in a friend's wedding that weekend. 2012 would have been awesome for Radiohead but I had already committed to EDC which fell the same weekend. Lineup wise, yeah I definitely dig it overall though I'd like to see some better EDM. I hope Disclosure and Phoenix get late-night sets.

    Anyone ever done VIP? I would love to not have to bring a tent, etc, use the shuttle from the airport, and because I always hear grimy things about this fest the private showers/bathrooms sound nice. But it is quite more expensive so I'm wondering if it's really worth it.

    Also, I never appreciated the Coachella poster drop so much. BLAM was unbearable.

    Two Skrillex sets in my only main issue with the lineup. It's pretty great though and I plan on going again this year.

    Great Read

    http://www.relix.com/news/detail/bon...gee_yonder_the

    Elton John, Kanye West, Jack White, Lionel Richie, Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers and Phoenix are among the acts confirmed to appear at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival this spring. As previously reported, the 13th annual music, art and comedy gathering will return to Manchester, Tenn. from June 12-15. The final Bonnaroo 2013 lineup will boast over 130 bands and comedians throughout 13 stages. Other marquee acts slated to perform at the always eclectic event include: Skrillex, Arctic Monkeys, Frank Ocean, The Flaming Lips, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Kaskade, Damon Albarn, Neutral Milk Hotel, Wiz Khalifa, Disclosure, Cut Copy, The Head and the Heart, Zedd, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Chromeo, Broken Bells, James Blake and Bobby Womack.

    As in years past, Bonnaroo will also boast a range of genre-bending superjams as well as honor its roots in live, improvisational music thanks to marquee appearances by Tedeschi Trucks Band, Umphrey’s McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band and The John Butler Trio, among others. The festival’s lineup was officially rolled out this evening via the The Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon (BLAM!) video featuring Taran Killam, Hannibal Buress and a SuperJam boasting The Flaming Lips & Ben Folds.

    Elton John, the latest in a line of cross-generational icons such as Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, The Police, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty to make the trek to Manchester, has been on festival promoters’ bucket list for several years. His appearance on the festival’s What Stage will not only be his first Bonnaroo appearance but also his first appearance at any modern United States music festival.

    “Elton is another legend that’s making us to pinch ourselves that we’re allowed to do this,” says Rick Farman, a co-founder of New York-based Superfly, who promoters the festival with Knoxville, Tenn.’s AC Entertainment. “I think also it is particularly cool that it is the first time he’s played a festival in North America.”

    While John is a new addition to the Bonnaroo family, this year’s other top-shelf bands all have much deeper roots in the festival. Nashville transplant Jack White, who lives less than an hour from the festival site, has performed at Bonnaroo with both The White Stripes in 2007 and The Raconteurs in 2008 and attended the festival on several other occasions. In 2012, he brought event headliners Radiohead to his Third Man Records to record some tracks before their Bonnaroo appearance. However, this marks both White’s first Bonnaroo appearance under his own name and his first time as one of the festival’s headliners.

    “He’s one of the special relationships we’ve had like Kings of Leon, Mumford & Sons and My Morning Jacket,” Farman says. “Jack White started off at a little bigger level when he first played the festival, but I think he has embraced it in a similar fashion—you associate him with being a Bonnaroo artist. Jack has played so many different times and in so many different configurations, it’s pretty special. His performance with The White Stripes was definitely in my top five Bonnaroo sets ever.”

    Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers and Phoenix are also emblematic of a wave of current buzz bands that have risen through the festival’s various tents and stages. The Avett Brothers performed in a tiny café space in 2006 and naturally progressed to The Other Tent in 2008 and the Which Stage in 2010 and, finally, the What Stage in 2012. Phoenix was one of the rare non-jam or Americana acts to play the festival two years in a row when they performed in 2009 and 2010; their latter show on the Which Stage was one of the most crowded in the stage’s history. While Vampire Weekend has only appeared at the festival on one prior occasion—a 2008 Thursday night showcase spot—they represent a generation of musicians who attended Bonnaroo as fans and swung back as performers. Drummer Chris Tomson drove down to the inaugural Bonnaroo in 2002 and marked his return by wearing a Phish T-shirt onstage during Vampire Weekend’s performance.

    “It is a sign of our age that there are guys that came as fans and now are in some of the biggest bands at the festival,” Farman says with a laugh. “That’s about as cool as it gets.”

    Though Lionel Richie has never appeared on an official Bonnaroo roster, the legendary hit maker—and favorite of the Superfly staff—has actually performed onstage at Bonnaroo. In 2012, while in Nashville for a country music event, Richie made an unannounced cameo at the festival during his friend and mentor Kenny Rogers’ set.

    “We’ve been trying to get him for years,” Farman says. “I saw him at JazzFest [in 2010] and it was amazing. He has so many killer songs. He’s great live. It will be so much fun.”
    The festival’s most unexpected booking is unquestionably Kayne West, who despite being one of the most successful rap musicians on the live music circuit, has a somewhat infamous history with Bonnaroo. In 2008, a mixture of production issues, 11th hour schedule changes and requests from West’s camp delayed his late night set into the wee hours of the morning while thousands of fans waited in front of an empty What Stage. By the time he took the stage, the sun had already started to rise, ruining the impact of his glow-in-the dark show. Neither West nor the festival’s promoters were happy with the outcome of the situation, leading to something of a back-and-forth over social media and on stage.

    “First and foremost, we think Kanye is one of the most prolific and groundbreaking artists of this generation,” Farman admits. “He’s hugely influential. His albums are as great and as acclaimed as they get. He’s also a great live performer. He takes a lot of chances and he’s adventurous with the live space. All those things are what Bonnaroo performers are about. That’s why we booked him [in 2008].

    His return to Bonnaroo will offer a chance for redemption.

    “Everyone has moved on—it’s in the past,” he continues. “We’re happy he wants to come back to Bonnaroo and is embracing this. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to look forward, and we think it’s a great opportunity for the Bonnaroo community to show what it’s made of. It goes back to what Bonnaroo stands for: It’s about having good time, radiating positivity and that whole message. We couldn’t be more excited about what we think has the potential to be another historic Bonnaroo moment.” West will anchor an impressive hip-hop lineup that also includes Frank Ocean, Wiz Khalifa, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Ice Cube, Janelle Monae, Die Antwoord, Chance the Rapper, A$AP Ferg, Pusha T, A Tribe Called Red and Danny Brown.

    Farman is also quick to point out the festival’s hallmark SuperJams and special collaborations. In past years, Bonnaroo has offered a myriad of jamband, funk, jazz, hip-hop and soul jam sessions. This year at least one of the festival’s official SuperJams will focus on electronic music, with EDM king Skrillex as the event’s host. “We continue to get excited about where the SuperJam concept is going,” Farman admits.

    “We’re really excited about venturing into a different genre, with Skrillex leading the charge. I think the SuperJam is something that’s really unique to what we do. It is a big part of Superfly’s roots and very connected to how Bonnaroo got started. To see that brand and concept continue to evolve and break new territory is something we are really excited about.”

    In addition to another themed SuperJam that has yet to be announced, Bonnaroo will welcome back The Hangover star and banjo enthusiast Ed Helms for his second consecutive Bluegrass Situation jam. Likewise, Billy Martin, Marc Ribot, DJ Logic and Shazad Ismaily will join Bachir Attar to reprise a recent album of Moroccan Sufi trance master music. The performance will be dubbed The Master Musicians of Jajouka.

    “That was one of [AC Entertainment founder] Ashley Capps’ bookings,” Farman says. “I’m excited to see the whole project. Personally, I’m really excited to see Marc Ribot. He’s such an amazing performer who’s under recognized. To have him doing that project there is pretty rad.”

    During the past few years, Bonnaroo’s initial lineups have shied away from the jambands who once served as the festival’s bedrock. But this year’s BLAM announcement included a number of core jam and improvisational acts including the before-mentioned Tedeschi Trucks Band, Umphrey’s McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band and The John Butler Trio as well as Greensky Bluegrass, Break Science, The Wood Brothers and Big Sam’s Funky Nation, among others. Umphrey’s McGee has performed at Bonnaroo more than almost any other band, appearing at the fest seven times between 2002 and 2012 (and often performing multiple times during the weekend). John Butler Trio is also a veteran of the first Bonnaroo. Though the band’s namesakes have performed at Bonnaroo with other projects, this year will mark Tedeschi Trucks Band’s first time at Bonnaroo.

    “Tedeschi Trucks Band arecoming into another level right now,” Farman says excitedly. “They’ve never been at the festival but Derek and Susan are people who are core to Bonnaroo. I think it’s pretty cool they’ll be there finally.”
    As the indie and jam communities have inched closer together, a new generation of roots and psych bands with ties to those once-divergent scenes have emerged. This year, Bonnaroo has confirmed a number of these festival-ready bands, including The Head the The Heart, Ben Howard, Shovels and Rope, ZZ Ward, Blackberry Smoke, Real Estate, Ty Segall, Darkside, Sarah Jarosz, White Denim, Jonathan Wilson, The Lone Bellow, Caveman, Cass McCombs, Vance Joy, J. Roddy Walston, Lake Street Dive, St. Paul and The Broken Bones and The Wild Feathers. Farman also encourages fans to check out Robert DeYoung, who blends EDM with traditional singer-songwriter music, as well as Middle Eastern musician Omar Souleyman and post-punk music legend Nick Cave.

    “Thirteen years ago, if you were to tell us we would have all these great people and legends playing there, we wouldn’t have believed you,” Farman says.

    If he's got the field to himself and 'Roo I'd be one of the top 2 biggest crowds he's performed to in his career.

    Jack at Lolla was at the same time as Kaskade, Childish Gambino and Justice.

    I can answer anything you want about VIP, I've been before. First thing, I would be shocked if Phoenix got a late night. Second, you would still have to bring a tent for VIP. You would need to go bigger to not need a tent (RV/safari tent etc)

    I really don't think Bonnaroo is ever going to be my thing. I get why people think this is good, but it's just another year that it lacks a wow factor for me personally. Cut Copy breaks my heart because I was so sure they would be at Coachella, Bobby Womack is actually something I put on a Coachella fake poster last year and is something I'd love to see, but other than that nothing that would make me pull the trigger and go.

    It really only started appearing on their lineups in 09? I don't get why they wouldn't book a super jam with Jack White on one of the main stages. That would have been amazing, and really seems like a missed opportunity.

    Well the Jack White set is going to be a super jam anyways. I'm sure he will have some special guests with him to fill out the headline slot. Also superjams are generally late night sets (not sure about the bluegrass superjams but the rest are late night sets). Its a solid lineup but nothing crazy special. But I guess that's how festivals are gonna be from here on out. I need to get my ass to europe.

    The Strokes are notorious for playing short sets, so I don't get why people are thinking that Julian will be leading the mystery Superjam.

    I can't see why it wouldn't be Jack White heading the other superjam. Also, I think the Skrillex superjam could be one of the most inventive and interesting thing to come out of a festival in a while. Have no clue how it will go down, but I envision some sort of DJ battle type shit with the hip hop guys and other musicians joining in. I don't see it being a massive banger type thing that Skrillex is known for. I've never cared to see Skrillex before but if I was going to Roo, I would be sure to check it out since there has never been something like it before.
