Bonnaroo is the latest major U.S. festival to wow fans with their artist lineup as fans close out the first full week of 2019. Announced on Tuesday morning, the four-day camping festival will return to its home on “The Farm” in Manchester, Tennessee on June 13-16 this summer, and will, as usual, provide attendees a wide mix of undercard performances to go with headlining sets including Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone and ODESZA.
Seeing Phish on the lineup card for the first time since 2012 should make jam band fans and Bonnaroo purists happy. What’s really wild is the rock band will play not one night, but two! They’re scheduled to play a late night set after Childish Gambino on Friday, followed by two more to close out the event on Sunday. They also act as the first real jam-focused headliner since Dead & Company played Bonnaroo back in 2016. Speaking of Childish Gambino, the rap alias of Donald Glover will headline Friday night, just as he’s scheduled to do for both weekends of Coachella a few months prior. Other notable names atop all four days of this year’s Bonnaroo include The Avett Brothers, GRiZ (who’s also leading the event’s trademark SuperJam on Friday), Hozier, rising country artist Kacey Musgraves, Brandi Carlile, Cardi B, The National and ZHU.
The Grand Ole Opry’s footprint at the event will return for its second year on Thursday night this summer, although details for the country music pop-up at the event weren’t given to go with Tuesday’s announcement. Some of the notable non-headlining artists who will surely make an impression on attendees this year include Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, SunSquabi, Beach House, Courtney Barnett, John Prine, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, Mac DeMarco, Japanese psych-rock champions Kikagaku Moyo and Trampled By Turtles, just to name a few.
