Are you still holding out to decide which festivals to hit up this summer? Well, Bonnaroo is now part of the fray, after announcing their 2016 lineup last night on Conan! Yesterday, we wrote about Pearl Jam‘s tour, which let the cat outta the bag when it revealed they would be headlining the Tennessee festival, and now we can fawn over the rest of the lineup as well. Other headlining acts include Dead & Company, who will be playing two sets, and LCD Soundsystem, who is also headlining day one of Coachella this April. This year Bonnaroo is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is an annual four-day music festival developed and produced by Superfly Presents and AC Entertainment; since its first year in 2002, it has been held at what is now Great Stage Park on a farm in Manchester, Tennessee. The festival typically starts on the second Thursday in June and lasts four days. Main attractions of this festival are the multiple stages featuring live music with a diverse array of musical styles including indie rock, classic rock, world music, hip hop, jazz, bluegrass, country music, folk, pop, electronica, and other alternative music. Musical acts play from around noon until 4am or later.
The festival began with a focus on jam bands and folk rock; it has diversified in recent years but continues to pay tribute to its roots. Notable acts have included Arctic Monkeys, Elton John, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Paul McCartney, (infamously) Kanye West, Stevie Wonder, The White Stripes, Jay Z, Bob Dylan, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Billy Joel. The festival features craftsmen and artisans selling unique products, food and drink vendors, a comedy tent, silent disco, cinema tent, and a Ferris wheel.
