Bonnaroo Announces Initial Lineup for 2008

As the 2008 festival season starts to take shape, one of the heavies in the festival scene have just announced their initial lineup. No Radiohead here as of yet as many would be hoping for, and with the set of headliners, one might think that this wish might not come true this year. You’ll find Metallica, Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson….wait a minute, is this Bonnaroo we’re talking about?? Kanye West is an interesting choice in my opinion. The Led Zepplin rumor turns out not to be true, and NME finds a big foot in their big mouth.  Check the list for yourself and share your thoughts.


Overall, it’s not a terrible lineup, it just didn’t seem to spark the Bonnaroo excitement as in years past. Keep checking the site for updates, hopefully something a bit more fresh and exciting.

    I’d go if I was confident they’d play “Master of Puppets” live. That’d be worth the price of admission alone.

    they will play that one. and sanatarium. and EVERY SONG OFF OF SAINT ANGER. just kidding. but who can tolerate that james hetfield ‘hey yeah’ after every phrase? You can be sure of hearing “One” as well.

    Kinda burned out on Metallica after the Justice tour (I saw Metallica open for Ozzy on their Puppets tour a little before Clif got killed). But I’m really looking forward to seeing them. Think the band will be rockin & their live show is pretty decent.

    Now if we could have just got a full Primus show instead of just one of Les’s bands…
