The 2009 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival lineup has just been announced, and what a diverse array of talent it is: Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band, Phish, the Beastie Boys, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Al Green, Elvis Costello, Wilco and Snoop Dogg are just some of the performers slated to appear.
The festival will take place 11 - 14 June in Manchester, Tennessee.
For Bruce Springsteen, who is embarking on a world tour starting 1 April, it is his only scheduled North America festival appearance of the year (although he's still heavily rumored to play the Glastonbury Festival in June).
Two completely different Phish shows
It is also the only confirmed festival stop for the reunited Phish, who will play two distinct shows on the Bonnaroo main stage on two separate nights: a two-set performance and an additional late-evening set.
Other confirmed acts include Gov't Mule, The Mars Volta, Merle Haggard, Erykah Badu, Ben Harper and his new band The Relentless 7, Paul Oakenfold, TV on the Radio, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and loads more (see below).
Tickets for the festival go on sale 7 February at Bonnaroo.com, and for the first time fans can select a payment plan of five $50 installments.
