Jay-Z to Headline Bonnaroo 2010
This year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival lineup was announced and it looks like Jay-Z is heading to Manchester, Tenn. this year. The hip-hop mogul, who’s already been confirmed to play Coachella, will headline Bonnaroo along with a mixed bag of talent, including Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder, Dave Matthews Band and Weezer. The fest will also boast a slew of rappers like Nas alongside Damian Marley, Wale, Kid Cudi and Jay Electronica.
The last time a member of hip-hop’s elite held down the headlining slot was in 2008 when Kanye West took the stage more than two hours late, causing fans to throw items on stage and boo the rapper/producer. West blamed his tardiness on his set and claimed that it took the the stage crew 45 minutes longer than expected to set up the screens and lights. He also made note that Pearl Jam’s set went over by an hour.
Hov hasn’t made his fans wait for hours since he began working toward taking over the world, so we doubt we’ll see a repeat of the Kanye Bonnaroo debacle.
Tickets for Bonnaroo, which kicks off June 10 and runs to June 13, went on sale today at the fest’s official site.
