The bomb cyclone hangover might still have you frozen onto your couch, but it’s never too early to dig the tent and rain boots out of the closet and start getting psyched for the biggest party of the summer. The 2018 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival lineup is here and it’s major, with Eminem, The Killers, Muse and Future topping the initial list of headliners for the 17th annual edition, along with a heavy-hitting roster of more than 150 acts setting up on 10 stages from June 7-10 on the legendary fest’s 700-acre spread in Manchester, Tennessee.
Also performing this year are: Bassnectar, Sturgill Simpson, Bon Iver (performing two unique sets), Khalid, Kaskade, Paramore, Alt-J, Dua Lipa, Sheryl Crow, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Sylvan Esso, Rebelution, The Revivalists, Virtual Self, Nile Rogers & Chic, Rufus Du Sol, Chromeo, STS9, Alison Wonderland, Moon Taxi, Carnage, BROCKHAMPTON, Old Crow Medicine Show, Playboi Carti, The Glitch Mob, Broken Social Scene, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Thundercat, plus many more. Click here for information on tickets, which go on sale on Friday (Jan. 12) at 10 a.m. ET.
Among the new wrinkles added to the unique ‘Roo experience this year: the communal areas formerly known as Pods are now re-dubbed Plazas. The well-lit, strategically located public spots located in campgrounds around the site will include shade, free public WiFi, showers, fun activities and art, charging stations, Clean Vibes Trading Post redemption centers, misting stations, medical, safety stations, information and portable restrooms. Also, several permanent “Barns” will be installed around the site in the campgrounds and a “pristine wooded hangout” similar to The Grove is being built as well.
Other amenities to look forward to: Droolworthy Food with Celebrity Chef Tim, House of Yes, Little Cinema, The Well, Tonalism by DUBLAB, The B-Hive Under the Tower and Themed Community Camps, including a Communal Campground created by festival vet Matt Shultz of Cage the Elephant; click here to find out more about the camping.
