Um... holy shit. On the bill this year so far [courtesy Pitchfork]:

And that's just the start. More acts will be announced on Wednesday via the official Bonnaroo site.
Only a handful of those acts I haven't seen live, but that number includes Sting & company in their only scheduled date in the southeast. Hmm...
Bonnaroo takes place June 14-17 in Manchester, Tennessee.
