Bonnaroo 2012 lineup: Radiohead, Beach Boys, Bon Iver, but no Prince
No one should be particularly shocked that the 2012 Bonnaroo lineup circulating yesterday that we thought was fake turned out to be... fake.
Today, however, the real deal emerges. And, aside from the notable absence of Prince (and Corrosion of Conformity), the thing is still remarkably similar to what the pranksters wanted us to believe. The headliners for the annual camping-oriented festival -- held June 7-10 in Manchester, Tennessee -- include Radiohead, Phish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the recently reunited Beach Boys. Check out the entire lineup, including some locals, below.
Our local bluegrass fusionists Trampled by Turtles made the lineup, and two bands that might as well be from Minnesota, Bon Iver and Dawes, are scheduled to perform. Skrillex will also be there. Here's the rest of the names, via the Bonnaroo site:
