Bonnaroo’s Awesome Lineup Is Revealed, Starring The Likes Of Radiohead, Bon Iver, Red Hot Chili Peppers And Foster The People

If you’ve been in front of a computer with a working Internet connection today you’re probably aware that Bonnaroo has announced the line up for this year’s festival, and that everyone is getting a little breathy and excited about it. And why not — the lineup is absolutely out of this world, with huge names Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, The Beach Boys, Grammy winners Bon Iver, The Avett Brothers and The Shins headlining the festival. While we’re a bit perplexed as to why the legendary Beach Boys are billed fourth (we can understand Radiohead as a firm first, but surely The Beach Boys have more clout on a lineup than Red Hot Chili Peppers or Phish, especially as they’ve reunited to tour this year?), it’s hard to maintain any kind of indignation with such a fun lineup.

The big names appear next to some pretty “of the moment” new comers, including our You Oughta Know artists Foster The People (could this be Grammys round 2, performing with The Beach Boys again perchance?), The Civil Wars, Dawes and Fitz & The Tantrums (we LOVE to say we told ya so!). There’s also the dub act that’s taken the USA by storm, Grammy winner Skrillex, oldies but goodies like The Roots, Alice Cooper, Ludacris and Ben Folds Five. And is anyone as excited about the Black Star comeback as we are?? Hype acts on the list include Childish Gambino, 2011′s lauded tUnE-yArDs, St. Vincent, SBTRKT, Kendrick Lamar, Kurt Vile, EMA and Das Racist to name but a few! Bonnaroo might just have the leg up on the other festivals — sure Coachella has a hype-led lineup with a smattering of superstar at the top of the bill and SXSW is ready to introduce us to the hottest new talent, but Bonnaroo seems to balance the classic and timeless with still relevant veterans and hyped new names across genres. Basically, Bonnaroo’s got something for everyone.

Bonnaroo tickets go on sale February 18th at 12 p.m. EST.

Tuned In: The Avett Brothers Cover Bob Dylan’s “One Too Many Mornings” On Fallon

It’s a tall order to cover the music of a legend, but last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon The Avett Brothers pulled it off just about as perfectly as one could hope to. Covering Bob Dylan‘s “One Too Many Mornings,” the North Carolina band embraced the spirit of folk, giving a refined, whimsical performance. Did you love their rendition of the Dylan classic? Well never fear — The Avett Brothers’ version of “One Too Many Mornings” will appear on a 4-CD box set of Dylan covers, Chimes Of Freedom, set to be released on January 24th.
