Pearl Jam, Dead & Company, LCD Soundsystem Slated to Headline Bonnaroo

The lineup for the 2016 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has been announced, with acts Pearl Jam, Dead & Company (members of the Grateful Dead with John Mayer), and recently reunited dance rockers LCD Soundsystem topping the bill. All three acts have rich histories with the festival as previous performers, which is fitting as 2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the Manchester festival.

Other notable acts include Ellie Goulding, J. Cole, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Death Cab for Cutie, Tame Impala, Ween and Judd Apatow. More lower-card and regional acts are expected to be added soon, but already announced Middle Tennessee acts include Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Bully, Natalie Prass and Judah & the Lion.

It’s also worth noting that this year marks the first time “The Farm” will (finally) have indoor toilet and shower facilities onsite for festivalgoers. However, they will be charging a car camping fee this year as well, which some Bonnaroovians are not happy about. The full lineup and ticketing info can be found at bonnaroo.com.
