Bonnaroo 2016 Poster
The Mother of modern music festivals, Bonnaroo, celebrates 15 years on the farm this year with Pearl Jam, the newly formed Dead & Company that includes John Mayer, and a reunion of LCD Soundsystem June 9-12th. The lineup was announced on Conan O’Brien’s show and here’s what he quipped: and while some of it leaked out last week, Conan still had this to say: “Some of that information was leaked online before we could announce it,” Conan explained. “But there is one appearance at this year’s Bonnaroo that no one knows about … I’m thrilled to announce that appearing at Bonnaroo this year, for the first time ever, are flushable toilets!”
Festival dates are June 9-12th with tickets going on sale this Friday (1/22) at 10am via bonnaroo.com.
Dead & Company are slated to play two sets this year and playing in the band are Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir along with John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
Comedians announced so far are Judd Apatow and Friends, Bridget Everett and Adam Devine of Workaholics.
And as Conan said, flushable toilets! Upgrades made to the farm this year include 400 toilets, hundreds of showers and additional water filling stations, which were installed on a new water line that runs through the festival grounds.
More players, including comedians and superjam participants, are still to be announced.
