I thought I had lost my chance to go Bonnaroo, but now I’m thinking this might just be the best year yet. (I’ve also never been to Warped Tour, heck I might don some Vans in the spirit and get punched this summer, who knows?)
Bonnaroo has seem some iconic acts come through The Farm (it’s loving nickname), where, high fives are the currency of strangers becoming friends. Radiohead, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (RIP</3), Elvis Costello, JAMES BROWN (RIP</3), The Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic had a monopoly for a minute, all of these legends have played the “What” stage at some point, but it would seem in years past, the lineup has been a bit fluffed, (no offense Marshmello).
2018 is the rebirth of Bonnaroo.**
**Although, okay, 2016 was pretty fucking cool. Pearl Jam, Dead & Company, LCD Soundsystem, J Cole, Tame Impala, Jason Isbell, Band of Horses, Father John Misty, GoldLink, & more! Our staff writer Sean Gray navigated his way through this stellar lineup two years ago and came back with some pretty cool stories.
Eminem is back for the first time since he headlined back in 2011. The outspoken rapper has been even more vocal since the evil orange has taken office and I’m hoping for a freestyle ala his BET Hip Hop awards at the end of 2017, or at least some kind of political diatribe on the “What” stage. Either way, he’ll be one to watch. (Is a D12 reunion too hopeful???)
Add in The Killers off their latest album, Wonderful Wonderful, Muse, Future, Sturgill Simpson (an unmissable act), Sheryl Crow, England’s latest Pop darling Dua Lipa, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals (a no brainer), T-Pain, Daniel Ceasar, Chicago’s hot rock scene via Post Animal and Knox Fortune, Japanese Breakfast, & more…this year the Farm is going to be sold out.
