Bonnaroo 2010 lineup begins to be posted, Phoenix and Weezer already on board… and so is Jay-Z!

Today Bonnaroo’s initial lineup gets announced. The only catch is that they’ve invited the bands to announce their involvement over the course of the day through whatever social media they want. Starting at noon (two hours from now), Bonnaroo’s myspace page will begin to compile a list of who all has announced. But why wait! Here’s my running tab (with loads of help from the Bonnaroo message board) of what bands have official announced today that they’re playing my favorite music festival:

*Weezer

*OK Go
*John Fogerty

And of course I’ll post the full lineup later today. This is just for those who are way too excited, like myself.

UPDATE: Well, the lineup is going live at Bonnaroo’s myspace, but they’re rolling it out one artist every five minutes or so. We’ve already got the first two on the list (Flaming Lips & Avett Bros), so I’ll just keep updating this as it goes.

Here’s the great video the Avett Brothers made to announce their involvement:

  1. eh the majority of these artists are gonna be at coachella, john fogerty and weezer are pretty sweet adds though

  2. Is this the “second-chance club” reunion??? Mix in a little bit of over “overplayed on the radio” and you’ve got Bonnaroo 2010! I guess I can say that the beginning of the 90’s were awkward too with all the shitty 80’s carryovers hanging on like Giardia lamblia.
