Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce the initial lineup for the 2007 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The sixth annual four-day camping and music festival will be held on June 14-17 on the same beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles south of Nashville.
A full list of confirmed acts follows, and more will be announced in the coming weeks. The final Bonnaroo 2007 lineup will total over 100 bands and 20 comedians performing on 13 stages over four days. Tickets go on sale exclusively through bonnaroo.com on Friday, February 23 at 12:00 PM EST.
Bonnaroo's 2007 music lineup is once again a wildly diverse set of top-notch acts from established veterans to cutting-edge artists. This year, Bonnaroo will host the recently reunited rock legends the Police
, along with other revered acts such as Tool
, Widespread Panic
and the first announced appearance by the White Stripes
after their lengthy break. The festival's most far-reaching lineup yet also features Manu Chao
, Franz Ferdinand
, the Decemberists
, Ben Harper
and the Innocent Criminals, the String Cheese Incident
, Regina Spektor
, the Flaming Lips
and Damien Rice
amongst scores of others.
Alternative arts entertainment has always been an integral part of the Bonnaroo experience. Comedy is a hit among Bonnaroo fans, who pack in to see sets at Yet Another (Comedy) Tent, the festival's on-site comedy club. The 2007 festival offers the best crop of comedians yet. This year's laugh lineup includes crude and hilarious sets by David Cross
, Dave Attell
and Lewis Black
, who is returning to Bonnaroo for the second year in a row.
