The afternoon rolls on, and so does the list of artists confirmed for the 2010 Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival, scheduled for June 10-13 in Manchester, Tennessee.
New bands added to the continually growing bill (festival organizers have decided to reveal a new act every five minutes on Bonnaroo’s MySpace page) include hometown heroes the [artist id="1233888"]Kings of Leon[/artist], [artist id="814"]Dave Matthews Band[/artist], [artist id="2372354"]Tokyo Police Club[/artist], [artist id="3133146"]She & Him[/artist], the National, Tori Amos, Gwar, They Might Be Giants, Damian Marley and [artist id="1000"]Nas[/artist], and the Manchester Orchestra .
They join previously announced acts like Jay-Z, Weezer, the Flaming Lips — with Stardeath and the White Dwarves, who will perform Pink Floyd’s classic Dark Side of the Moon album — and Steve Martin, not to mention Norah Jones, Wale, Regina Spektor, the Avett Brothers, Medeski Martin and Wood, Bassnectar, Phoenix and the XX.
Tickets for Bonnaroo 2010 are on sale now through the festival’s Web site, with a four-day pass going for $234.50. For those wishing to experience the fest in the lap of luxury (read: with semi-private toilets), there are RV passes going for $150. There are also super-deluxe “Total Access” packages with 24-hour concierge service and complimentary meals available for a significantly higher cost. And as in previous years, Bonnaroo is also offering attendees the opportunity to purchase tickets on an installment plan.
The final lineup for the festival won’t be revealed until 9 p.m. Tuesday night (February 9). For up-to-the-minute (or up-to-the-five-minute) looks at the bill, be sure to check out Bonnaroo’s MySpace.
