Published Feb 15, 2011Once a year, an array of indie rock and hip-hop fans join a horde of patchouli-drenched hippies in Manchester, TN for the annual Bonnaroo festival. This year, the event will be celebrating its tenth anniversary, from June 9 to 12, and it has assembled its most diverse lineup yet.
Here's the full lineup, as shown on the Bonnaroo website:
Eminem, Arcade Fire, Widespread Panic, the Black Keys, the reunited Buffalo Springfield, My Morning Jacket, Lil Wayne, String Cheese Incident, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Mumford & Sons, the Strokes, the Decemberists, Ray LaMontagne, Bassnectar, Iron & Wine, Girl Talk, Primus, Akison Krauss & Union Station, Pretty Lights, Florence + the Machine, Explosions in the Sky, STS9, Gogol Bordello, Beirut, Big Boi, Scissor Sisters, Greg Allman, Ratatat, Robyn, Warren Haynes Band, Deerhunter, Opeth, Atmosphere, Old Crow Medicine Show, Bootsy Collins, Wiz Khalifa, Matt & Kim, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, the Del McCoury Band & The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Mavis Staples, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Chiddy Bang, Jovanotti, Bruce Hornsby, Loretta Lynn, Cold War Kids, the Walkmen, Wanda Jackson, Neon Trees, Portugal.

While you're Googling some of these artists to find out who the hell they are and reacquainting yourself with the works of Freelance Whales and Old Crow Medicine Show, know that there's still a comedy lineup forthcoming, as well as more musical acts. There's also something called "2011: Revenge of the Superjam" featuring the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and Dr. John. We're not exactly sure what that is, but we're willing to wager that at least one person in the audience will be wearing a Dr. Suess hat.
Tickets for the festival will be available on February 19 at 12 p.m. EST via the Bonnaroo site here. A video of Conan O'Brien announcing the lineup is available below.
