The 2014 edition of Bonnaroo Music Festival takes place June 12th – 15th in Manchester, TN. With just a month to go, festival organizers have revealed the schedule.
Thursday, the festival’s first day, traditionally features up-and-coming acts. This year’s lineup includes Ty Segall, Cloud Nothings, Real Estate, Banks, Cass McCombs, Pusha T, Poliça, and White Denim. In terms of conflicts, the only notable overlaps are between Pusha T and White Denim and Poliça and Omar Souleyman.
Kanye West will make his return to Bonnaroo serving as Friday night headliner. He’ll be preceded by performances from Neutral Milk Hotel, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, CHVRCHES, Janelle Monae, Andrew Bird, and Danny Brown. The biggest set conflicts here are between Vampire Weekend and CHVRCHES, Neutral Milk Hotel and Phoenix, and Sam Smith and Dr. Dog.
Friday night late-night is where it really gets hard: Disclosure, Mastodon, Ice Cube, and the as-yet-unannounced SuperJam all overlap. Later in the morning (?), Skrillex will face off against Deafheaven and Chance the Rapper.
Saturday features Jack White as headliner, supported by performances from Lionel Ritchie, Damon Albarn, Lauryn Hill, Cut Copy, James Blake, Chromeo, Phosphorescent, and Cage the Elephant, among others. But you’ll have to chose between Richie and Blake, Cut Copy and Hill, and First Aid Kid and Haerts.
Saturday night late-night promises the return of Frank Ocean, but his set will overlap with The Flaming Lips, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Skrillex’s Superjam. Later, Darkside will take the stage opposite Kaskade and Zedd.
The festival’s final day will be headlined by Elton John. Earlier in the day, you’ll have to chose between Arctic Monkeys and Warpaint, Little Dragon and The Avett Brothers, and Okkervil River and Goat.
