In an apparent attempt to please everybody ever, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has announced its all-encompassing lineup for 2013. Taking place from June 13-16 in Manchester, Tennessee, the festival will surely have all the great performances (musical and comedic), selling of wares and B.O.-drenched debauchery it’s known for.
While the headliners–Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and Bjork–are in a league of their own, some of the lesser-known acts are the ones here who are truly noteworthy.
Here are some of our favorites that aren’t necessarily headlining:
– R. Kelly
–David Byrne & St. Vincent
–“Weird Al” Yankovic
–Portugal the Man
–Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes
–Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti
–Jeff the Brotherhood
Do your best to catch all of these acts, but it’ll be a logistical feat for the ages.
There are also some pretty crazy collaborations taking place. For one installment of the infamous Superjam, Jim James (My Morning Jacket) will be joined by John Oates, Zigaboo Modeliste, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (who you may have seen backing the Black Keys at the 2013 Grammy Awards). Ed Helms (The Daily Show, The Office) will be heading up the Bluegrass Situation Superjam with to-be-announced special guests. Anyone who’s watched Helms on The Office knows of his banjo-pickin’ skills, so anyone playing with him will have to be of a pretty high caliber.
There are still more artists to be announced, as if these weren’t enough, so stay tuned.
