As February comes to a close next week, music fans should be getting more and more excited for the arrival of festival season.. Another major festival, Bonnaroo, released their daily lineup on Wednesday afternoon, giving “Bonnaroovians,” as they refer to themselves, a general schedule to work with to start planning their days out as the four day event in Manchester, Tenn., draws closer by the day.
Bonnaroo made headlines last month when they announced that the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Weeknd and U2 would be the headlining acts for the festival’s 16th year this summer. This will be the first time U2 will be playing at a music festival in the U.S., making the stop as part of their tour in celebration of Joshua Tree turning 30-years-old in 2017.
The first day of Bonnaroo on Thursday typically doesn’t feature any of their headlining acts performing, as many attendees are still making the pilgrimage to the festival site which is located just over an hour drive southeast of Nashville. Friday however will welcome U2, Major Lazer, The xx and Glass Animals to name a few.
Saturday will see the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance The Rapper, Flume, Deap Vally and more. As per tradition at Bonnaroo, Saturday night will also feature the annual superjam, with artists who will be participating in the late night set to be announced in the coming months. The superjam has always taken place well into the early hours of the morning as Saturday turns into Sunday after the day three headlining set ends.
