One of our favorite inaugural festivals is back with an epic knockout 2018 lineup. Bonnaroo had a heavy task ahead of them this year following their monumental 2017 lineup which featured U2, The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper, Major Lazer, Flume, Marshmello, Big Gigantic, Louis The Child, and more. For 2018, Eminem continues to make the rounds, this time joined by The Killers and Muse as this year’s co-headliners. The annual Manchester, TN festival is also set to feature two unique performances by Bon Iver as well as appearances from Paramore, T-Pain, Future, Playboi Carti, Dua Lipa, and Ekali collaborator Denzel Curry. Set for the road, alt-J, Jungle, and Elohim will be stopping off after Coachella, with Khalid, Sylvan Esso, and Billie Eilish coming in hot following Governors Ball.
Bonnaroo is known for its eclectic taste and cross genre lineups but electronic music is still dominating this year’s lineup. Porter Robinson will return as his new alter ego Virtual Self along with Alison Wonderland, What So Not, Hippie Sabotage, Snakehips, Mr. Carmack, k?d, Mija, and Said The Sky. bitbird will also continue to put their stamp on the festival circuit following San Holo’s Coachella announcement with DROELOE and Taska Black headed to the farm. Other notable artists on this year’s lineup include Billboard and Rolling Stone backed R&B sensation R.LUM.R, Playboi Cardi featured California singer Leven Kali, and RTT future bass favorite Melvv.
