Another day, another major music festival lineup announcement. On Wednesday morning it was the highly anticipated lineup announcement for Bonnaroo, which will be returning to The Farm in Manchester, TN in 2017 on June 8-11 for its sixteenth year. Leading the way on the lineup poster are U2, who as previously reported, will be making their first ever U.S. festival appearance, joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Weeknd, and Chance The Rapper.
It will be the first headlining spot at a major music festival for The Weeknd, whose stock rose even higher with the successful release of Starboy back in November. The R&B singer was supposed to headline The Meadows NYC Festival back in October, but pulled out at the last minute to perform on Saturday Night Live instead.
Other notable appearances on the lineup include Major Lazer, Flume, Lorde, The xx, Travis Scott, Cage The Elephant, Tove Lo, Tegan & Sara, Royal Blood, Michael Kiwanuka, Deap Vally, and Aaron Lee Tasjan to name a few.
Funnyman and Bonnaroo’s unofficial bluegrass ambassador, Ed Helms, will return to his second home once again this summer and will lead the bluegrass superjam.
