This summer, the sons of London and Liverpool will descend upon Manchester — Tennessee, that is.
The annual rustic revel known as Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has announced this year’s lineup, with Paul McCartney and Mumford & Sons topping the bill for the June event. Other topline guests on the docket include Bonnaroo veterans Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Icelandic export Björk.
Mumford & Sons, who this month snagged the Album of the Year prize at the Grammys, won’t be the only folk group packing their suspenders: The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, and Glen Hansard are also slated to play.
Of course, the full lineup for the four-day event, going down June 13-16 at its usual Tennessee stomping grounds, gets more diverse as you go down the list: Wilco, R. Kelly, the Wu-Tang Clan, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, David Byrne & St. Vincent, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Grizzly Bear, Nas, Earl Sweatshirt, and ZZ Top are just some of the acts who’ll be heading to the farm.
