Bonnaroo is set to reveal its 2016 lineup on Conan next Tuesday. However, last night the festival prematurely leaked a majority of the artists playing via its mobile app.

The leak contained the names of 91 artists, but the festival’s headliners were not among them. Consequence of Sound has learned that Pearl Jam will top this year’s lineup alongside LCD Soundsystem and Dead and Company, the new collaboration featuring members of the Grateful Dead and John Mayer.

Among those artists who were revealed via the festival’s app: Ween, M83, Tame Impala, HAIM, Vince Staples, Miguel, Father John Misty, Death Cab For Cutie, CHVRCHES, and Tyler, the Creator.

Other highlights include Purity Ring, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Waxahatchee, Natalie Prass, Blood Orange, Daughter, Big Grams (Big Boi and Phantogram), Twin Peaks, St. Lucia, Shamir, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Hundred Waters, Lucius, FIDLAR, and Beach Fossils.

The lineup also features Third Eye Blind, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Ellie Goulding, Zeds Dead, J. Cole, Chris Stapelton, Mavis Staples, Grace Potter, Leon Bridges, Brett Dennen, Two Door Cinema Club, Lamb of God, Dungen, Clutch, Jason Isbell, Lettuce, Lord Huron, Givers, Halsey, Sara Watkins, Sam Bush Band, Flosstradamus, Vulfpeck, Cashmere Cat, X Ambassadors, BØRNS, and more.

A festival source confirmed the veracity of the leak.

Reached for comment, a festival representative responded, “I love this time of year, it is always filled with anticipation and speculation.  As you know, we will be releasing our official lineup the 19th on Conan. The show is going to be a good one.”

Bonnaroo takes place June 9th – 12th in Manchester, Tennessee. Tickets will go on sale next week.
