So Bonnaroo quietly announced two more additions to their initial line-up that was leaked and subsequently confirmed a couple weeks back. The two new additions are:
Kind of a weak announcement, which may be why we haven’t heard a ton of talk about it. Or perhaps that initial leaked line-up wasn’t supposed to be so long? Anyways, The Roots are kind of an obvious choice, and a solid addition (Gotta have the “hip hop jamband” don’t ya?). The Wild Magnolia Mardi Gras Indians is kind an odd addition compared to most other artisits. My understanding is that these guys do a kind of street-art performance of song and dance in during Mardi Gras and JazzFest (wikipedia’s got some background here).
Ticket info update:
According to Billboard today (2/27), tickets are now sold out at the first few levels, and are only available at the highest price point of $214.50 (although, as of 11:45 AM CT the ticket site had not made this adjustment, I confirmed it by attempting to buy a ticket).
So will it sell out soon? What are your thoughts on future artist additions? You think any headliners are still on the horizon?
Man, is it me or are these big festivals getting really pricey?
