Bonnaroo has officially confirmed that, as rumored, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Phish will anchor the 11th incarnation of the iconic music festival, which will take place from June 7th to 10th in Manchester, Tennessee.
In addition to headliner Radiohead — no surprise here — a slew of other Coachella 2012 artists will also rock the festival:
The Black Lips, Bon Iver, Childish Gambino, Dawes, EMA, Feist, Fitz and the Tantrums, Flying Lotus, Gary Clark Jr., Grouplove, Kendrick Lamar, Laura Marling, SBTRKT, The Shins, St. Vincent and tUnE-yArDs are all on the first release of the lineup.
One thing Bonnaroo has that Coachella doesn’t? The Beach Boys. That’s right. The Beach Boys.
See the full Bonnaroo line-up here or watch the announcement:
When Bon Iver and Feist wrap up their Saturday gigs at Coachella, the party won’t stop here.
They’ll play together at the AVA Amphitheater in Tucson, Ariz., the following Monday, April 23. Tickets go on sale Friday at 9 a.m. PT.
Their fondness of each other goes back years: Bon Iver covered Feist’s “The Park” during an Australian radio show in 2009, and they both played sets on the same episode of BBC’s “Later… With Jools Holland” last year.
Think it’s too much to hope for a duet at Coachella?
Can’t catch them live in Arizona? Check out their duet of “Train Song” from Radio City Music Hall in 2009:
