The Dave Matthews Band and Modest Mouse will top an eclectic bill of more than 60 jam, rock and jazz acts at the fourth annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.
The three-day concert, which takes place June 10-12 on a 700-acre farm 60 miles south of Nashville, will also feature sets from Joss Stone, the Mars Volta, Widespread Panic, Rilo Kiley, Jack Johnson, My Morning Jacket, O.A.R. and the Secret Machines. More acts will be announced soon, according to an event spokesperson.
Also slated to perform are the Allman Brothers Band, Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Prine, Yonder Mountain String Band, Keller Williams, Toots & the Maytals, Umphrey’s McGee, Iron & Wine, Ozomatli, Drive-By Truckers, Particle, Citizen Cope and the Brazilian Girls.
The sprawling festival is again expected to feature an area with plenty of non-musical diversions, which have not yet been announced. Last year’s extras included morning yoga classes, a playground, batting cages, roving street performers, a movie tent, arcade games and Internet cafes.
Three-day tickets go on sale on January 29 and will range from $146.50-$172.50, which includes camping and parking.
Last year’s festival, which drew approximately 90,000 people, featured sets from the Dead, Bob Dylan, Wilco, Gomez, Damien Rice, Kings of Leon, Maroon 5, Primus, Willie Nelson and a solo set from Matthews that included Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio (see “Bonnaroo Recap: Melting Heat And A Melting Pot Of Music” ). A live CD and DVD from the 2004 show will be released in April.
