While Bonnaroo isn’t ready to unveil the full schedule for its 2009 incarnation just yet – after all, we still do have a few more adds to go! – the Manchester, Tennessee based music festival, scheduled to run from June 11-14, has unveiled a little peak.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band will hold down the Saturday headlining slot of the festival, while Phish will play both Friday and Sunday. As expected, of these two performances, the Friday set will be in the form of a latenight slow, while Sunday will see the legendary rockers capping off the festival at a more traditional early evening time.
As for everyone else currently on board to hit up this year’s Bonnaroo. Well, nothing is officially confirmed, but if you trust both logic and the fine folks at Inforoo, which we of course do, then the schedule may look something like this. A word of caution however, none of this is officially confirmed.
