Skrillex, Bon Iver + More to Perform at Bonnaroo
Bonny Bear meets Bonnaroo.
Of course, we actually mean Bon Iver. The Best New Artist Grammy winner will join fellow trophy-taker Skrillex at the Bonnaroo Festival, which sports a particularly stellar lineup this year.Joining the rocker and dubstep king are Foster the People, Radiohead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Civil Wars, the newly reunited Beach Boys, and many more.
The festival takes place annually over three days on a farm in Manchester, Tenn. This year’s festivities kick off June 7 and wind down on June 10. The festival is slated to feature 125 musical acts and 30 comedians, according to the New York Daily News. About half of the lineup was announced today (Feb. 124), with additions to each of the lineups expected throughout the week.
The festival should help Bon Iver’s name recognition a bit. Following his Best New Artist upset, Twitter users went on a rampage asking who he is (and why he won over Nicki Minaj and J. Cole). Here’s hoping he feels more enthusiastic about his performances than he does about his wins.
