With the amount of bands that perform at Bonnaroo, it's always an exciting day when they drop the festival's daily schedule. The 11th annual festival, taking place June 7 to 10 in Manchester, Tennessee, has Phish closing out the event on Sunday night with a four-hour slot, headlining spots from Radiohead and The Red Hot Chili Peppers and late-night performances by Big Gigantic and Umphrey's McGee.
Their jam-packed lin-up leaves no room for downtime - in fact, the festival usually has the opposite problem with many popular bands playing at the same time.
Music starts at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday with SOJA, Alabama Shakes, Orgone, MiM0SA and Big Gigantic slated to play.
Friday's music includes a mid-day set from The Infamous Stringdusters and afternoon/early-evening sets from The Avett Brothers, Fitz and The Tantrums, Feist, Rodirigo y Gabriela and C.U.B.A. Radiohead will play from 10:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Festivalgoers will have to choose between late-night sets by Umphreys McGee and Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk.
Saturday night is packed with sets from The Roots, Dispatch and The Chili Peppers with Skrillex handling late-night duties from 1:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m.
Sunday's music continues on for most of the day with with Ben Folds Five, Bon Iver and The Shins playing until 8:00 p.m. when everything stops and Phish controls the event until midnight.
Tickets are on sale now for $259.50 for a GA pass. Check out the our previous News Nug for the complete lineup and more details or visit Bonnaroo's official website for the full band-by-band schedule.
