Hot Fun in the Summertime

Hot on the heels of the lineup announcement for Coachella, we now have details on the initial acts announced to play Bonnaroo this year.

Bonnaroo delivers again, with over 100 bands, comedians, and something for everyone with art activities, workshops and vendors to supplement the live entertainment.

Bruce Springsteen, fresh off his Super Bowl appearance, plays his only North American festival of the year. 

And a lineup covering everything from Ben Harper’s new project, Relentless 7, to an appearance by the resurgent David Byrne promises to make this a great excuse to make a visit to the Tennessee countryside.

This is a golden era of music festivals, although there have been casualties (such as today’s announcement of the cancellation of this year’s Langerado Festival).

I will recommend to you what you already know – you owe it to yourself to get to one of these shows someday soon.

Don’t let the disaster of Woodstock ’99 dissuade you from checking out this new breed of rock festivals.
