Well the lineup for the next Bonnaroo Festival was released and is no disappointment. This years festival will feature top bill acts such as Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon, Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder and Weezer. Other notables include the "greatest rock band of all time" Tenacious D and Nashville's own The Dead Weather. This years festival will be held June 10-13 in it's usual place of Manchester, TN., little over an hour southeast of Nashville. Aside from the big guns, the festival will welcome in bands such as the folk group The Avett Brothers as well as guitar legends Jeff Beck and Les Claypool.

The Flaming Lips will also be making an appearance with Stardeath and White Dwarfs as they perform their cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. It will be interesting to see the performance of a band that is known for their live performances taking on a masterpiece such as this.

Michael Franti & Spearhead will also be making their 3rd appearance at the festival. Zac Brown Band, fresh off their Grammy performance, will also be making an appearance at the festival.

This is only a taste of the bands that will be performing at this years festival. For a full lineup you can see it on Bonnaroo's myspace page. One of the things that Bonnaroo has been pretty consistent on in the past is it's commitment to musical diversity and this year's list definitely doesn't disappoint.
