The Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup Announcement Is Here [Updated With Complete Lineup]



[UPDATE: The complete lineup is now on page two of this post.]

Right now, even as I type this, Weird Al Yankovic is in the midst of a three-hour long live streaming video announcement for this year's Bonnaroo Festival, a four-day event that takes place every year in Manchester, Tennessee. As one who is watching said live stream, I am presently somewhere near the seventh or tenth circle of hell, by my estimation.

R Kelly, Mumford and Sons, Paul McCartney, Passion Pit, Big K.R.I.T., Wilco, Purity Ring, Wu-Tang Clan, ZZ Top, Bjork, The xx, Tame Impala, Animal Collective, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore are among the artists announced so a pinata, Jimmy Fallon, the Weird One himself and some other guy in a sleeveless flannel shirt.

Watch for yourself here, or wait fifteen minutes until I update this post with the full lineup. See, I kindly subjected myself to this crap, so you didn't have to. You're welcome!
