Bonnaroo 2015 Lineup Announced By Festivalgoers On Social Media

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Mumford and Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Billy Joel and deadmau5 have been announced as headliners for the 2015 Bonnaroo festival in June.

  The British band will be back performing on the festival’s 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee after bassist Ted Dwane’s emergency brain surgery forced them to pull out of headlining in 2013.

  Farm favourites My Morning Jacket, who made Bonnaroo history in 2008 with a 35-song set late into the night, lead the supporting acts, including Slayer, Ben Folds, Alabama Shakes and Childish Gambino.

  Among a wealth of British acts on the bill are Robert Plant, Belle and Sebastian, Florence and the Machine and Jamie XX, while Courtney Barnett and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be making the trip from Australia.

  Festival organisers chose the unusual – some might say gimmicky – move of getting their fans to announce the lineup themselves. Instructed to call a free-phone number, each caller was given the name of one act appearing on the bill to share on social media using the hashtag #bonnaroo. “
