Eminem, Future, Paramore, The Killers, Playboi Carti, Brockhampton, T-Pain, Japanese Breakfast, Khalid, Sturgill Simpson, and many more are joining the annual Tennessee throwdown this year. Tickets go on sale on Friday (January 12th 2018) and follows an incredible event past year which featured headliners U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Weeknd. That was an area Bonnaroo had down cold for a decade, but they stumbled in the last couple of years.
You'll see the Opry listed right after Bonnaroo's traditional Superjam, and apparently in place of the "Bluegrass Situation Superjam", which actor/musician Ed Helms led from 2013-2017.
Several permanent "barns" are being installed in various locations onsite, according to officials.
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.
A complete lineup may be found at www.bonnaroo.com.
While Bonnaroo does not release box office or attendance figures, the Tennessean reported a slip to 45,537 in 2016, with headliners that included Pearl Jam, Dead & Company and LCD Soundsystem.
