Considered one of the biggest and best music festivals in the country, Bonnaroo has become a pilgrimage that any music fan must make. Featuring musicians from all genres, including indie rock, hip hop, jazz and more, Bonnaroo’s activities don’t stop at the music — which starts around noon and doesn’t end until … about 4 a.m. Here, you’ll find well-known comedians, film screenings, a silent disco and waterslides, just to name a few highlights.

Arcade Fire

It’s only Tuesday, and this has already been a huge week for music news. Starting with the stunning Grammy win by Canadian alt-rockers Arcade Fire, which capped off the highest-rated TV broadcast in 11 years, and followed by the surprise announcement of a brand-new Radiohead album release and the Wikipedia flame war set off by disgruntled Justin Bieber fans — it almost seems like the moribund music industry has developed a pulse.

And now comes the smashing Bonnaroo lineup announcement. Chock-full of Grammy winners and spanning every conceivable genre, Manchester (that’s Tennessee, not the UK) will be THE place to be on June 9-12, 2011.

Celebrating the festival’s 10th anniversary, Bonnaroo has lined up Eminem, Arcade Fire, Widespread Panic, The Black Keys and a reunited Buffalo Springfield.  Other featured artists include My Morning Jacket, Lil Wayne, String Cheese Incident, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Mumford & Sons, The Strokes, The Decemberists, Ray Lamontagne, Bassnectar, Iron & Wine, Girl Talk, Primus, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Pretty Lights, Explosions in the Sky, STS9, Gogol Bordello, Beirut, Big Boi, Scissor Sisters, Gregg Allman, Ratatat, Robyn, Warren Haynes Band and Deerhunter.
