Preview: Bonnaroo X

By on Thursday, 17th February 2011 at 11:00 am

Fans and bands will be swarming around Manchester, come 9-12 June 2011. No, I’m not talking about Manchester, England – I’m referring to a pretty massive music festival in Manchester, Tennessee, called Bonnaroo. This year will be the festival’s 10th year in business.

It’s a little weird seeing American late night personality Conan O’Brien announce the acts; it’s like if Graham Norton was asked to read off the scheduled bands for Glasto. Still, it’s unique…and some of the names on the bill will blow you away. A reunited Buffalo Springfield (didn’t see that one coming at all), the Strokes, Mumford and Sons, the Black Keys, Gregg Allman, Scissor Sisters and Neil Young are just a handful of acts confirmed for the festival.

Tickets to this year’s Bonnaroo will go on sale this Saturday (19 February) at 12 PM ET (5 PM GMT), with ticket prices from $224.50 (approximately £139) and up. For more details, visit the official Bonnaroo Web site.
