2017 Bonnaroo Headliners
U2 will be headlining as part of their North American tour celebrating Joshua Tree. There is no denying that they are a big deal. I think this will go a long way towards a sell out! This will be U2’s first North American festival headlining performance. With their ticket prices normally in the range of Bonnaroo tickets, you are already getting a great deal. Not sure what night they will be playing, but they have a performance scheduled already for Sunday the 11th so that is out.
Red Hot Chili Peppers will be miking their return to the farm. Their last show there was in 2012. RHCP is the the headliner I am most looking forward to. Their funky blend of rock will surely have everyone moving.
The third headliner is the Weekend. He has won two Grammy’s and had songs spend time at number one on the Billboard chart. His hits “I Can’t Feel My Face”, “The Hills”, and “Starboy” have earned him this spot and he will deliver a great performance.
2017 Bonnaroo Lineup Highlights
MajorLazer, Chance the Rapper, and Flume round out the top six. This is a pretty solid lineup and it gets better the deeper you go! Some of the highlights include, Lorde, Tegan & Sara, Portugal. The Man, Umphreys McGee, Greensky Bluegrass, and Margo Price.
Glass Animals, Big Gigantic, and Future Islands also sit high on the lineup this year.
One of my favorite things about Bonnaroo is the diversity of genres that they book. This year, seems to be lacking some of that at first glance (no metal, or non-headlining legacy acts). However,the more artists that I listen to that I haven’t heard before, the more I see Bonnaroo’s tradition of bringing a variety of music to the farm.
I am ecstatic to see Aaron Lee Tasjan on the lineup! He is a great performer, and works hard for Nashville’s music scene. Don’t miss his show!
