2009 Bonnaroo Lineup Announced: Phish, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, David Byrne, Nine Inch Nails, Wilco, Al Green, Snoop Dogg, more!


Bonnaroo just announced its 2009 lineup -- and like Coachella, it looks pretty strong. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are headlining, while Phish is doing two(!) shows. Other notables include Elvis Costello (solo), Wilco, Nine Inch Nails, Al Green, Snoop Dogg, Mars Volta and a bunch more. See the entire lineup after the jump.

Because the fest takes place in Tennessee, St. Louis always gets a fair amount of spillover from the event. Phish is already confirmed a few days after, but who else do you want to see? Will TV On the Radio and Jenny Lewis finally play in town? Will we see return engagements from Animal Collective, MGMT, Okkervil River, Robyn Hitchcock, Neko Case, AA Bondy, St. Vincent, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Band of Horses? Will the Beastie Boys come on over this way? Will Wilco repeat its homestand? Chime in with wishes in the comments.
