If you weren’t able to get tickets to Coachella this year, maybe you’ll consider heading east for a summer music festival. The Bonnaroo lineup was just announced and the headliners are pretty impressive. Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Mumford & Sons and Bjork are among the biggest acts on the roster. The Tennessee event doesn’t usually sell out as quickly as the California desert festival, but this year it just might.
The 2013 concert lineup was first announced on Tuesday during a live stream called Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon. “Weird Al” Yankovic hosted the quirky online event.
McCartney is no stranger to large festivals, and despite his advanced age, he can keep a show going for hours. In 2009, he headlined Coachella and played an amazing set that was nearly three hours. Mumford & Sons are returning to the Bonnaroo. They last played it in 2011. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are also returning after headlining in 2006.
The annual four-day music festival will take place from June 13-16 at the Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN. Tickets for this year’s festival go on sale this Saturday, Feb. 23 at noon ET. Head over to the festival’s website for more info.
Here’s the full lineup:
