Widespread Panic joins Bonnaroo line-up


With the unforunate news of the Allman Brothers pulling out of Bonnaroo because of Gregg Allman’s illness, Bonnaroo has made some major announcements.

Widespread Panic will now close the 2008 festival, headlining the main stage on Sunday evening, June 15.  Furthermore, Jack Johnson will be playing the main stage on Saturday night, taking the slot formerly held by the Allmans.

The festival line-up has also been bolstered by the additions of Les Claypool, Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, Superdrag, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Adele, Grand Ole Party, and The Postelles.


Still more additions to the Bonnaroo line-up:

Tiësto (late night set)
Stephen Marley
Money Mark
The Coup
Wood Brothers
Rogue Wave
Newton Faulkner


Bonnaroo has announced additions to its 2008 line-up:  Cat Power, Zappa Plays Zappa, The Disco Biscuits, MSTRKRFT, and Chromeo.


Bonnaroo has announced that comedian Chris Rock has been added to the festival line-up.  He’ll be performing an hour-long set on the the What Stage.

More announcements to the lineup will be made in the coming weeks.

Just when you thought Bonnaroo couldn’t get any bigger, they have unleashed perhaps the biggest line-up yet for the festival, which will take place June 12-15, 2008.
