Bonnaroo 2006 Announced!

Update (2/1/06): Bonnaroo 2006 Lineup Announced!

Bonnaroo Music Festival
June 16-18, 2006
Manchester, TN

The 5th Annual Bonnaroo Music Festival will be held during the June 16-18 weekend at the same location in muggy Central Tennessee. They’re scaling back the number of tickets to 80,000, the same amount as the 2003 festival. You know there’ll be a solid lineup and I can’t wait to see what big ticket bands they’re going to get.

I’m already making predictions on the secret, unannounced guests that tend to cause the most attention at past Roo’s. Stay tuned to Live Music Blog and bonnaroo.com for the up-to-date info on the festival.

Update (1/11/06): Some lineup rumors can be found here and here.

    To those of you that think that Radio head sucks: You are out of your minds! they are one of THE most creative bands since the Beatles. I also heard that Beck is supposed to headline. As well as Trey Band. Any word on that? Radiohead and Beck are two of the bands that I most want to see right now so if that’s true I’ll be ecstatic. Also wondering if The Mars Volta will be back. Any word on them? If these four bands are in the line up, I’m there! Please Lemme know if you hear anything. thanks

    Just in case some of you don’t know, Lyrics Born and Blackalicious have said on their websites that they are playing Roo. A round 4 sounds like it is right around the corner.
