R. Kelly, Nas & Wu-Tang Headline Bonnaroo 2013 + Festival News
The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival returns for 2013 with another awesome list of acts. The festivities are set to jump off from their 700 acre launchpad in Manchester, Tennessee on June 13th. Nas, R. Kelly, Wu-Tang Clan, A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar top the list of headliners and other acts of special Okayplayer interest include Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Amadou & Mariam and araabMUZIK–not to mention the soul superjam anchored by Zigaboo Modaliste and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The bill is full of big names (scroll down for the poster art with full line-up) that will undoubtedly make for four days of packed performances and major partying at the multi-stage event. In other festival news, the UK’s Wireless Festival rocks from July 12th to the 13th with Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z headlining that Friday and Saturday, respectively. Back on this side of the pond the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware will feature performances from Kendrick Lamar and the almighty Public Enemy between June 21st and 23rd. Mark your calendars!
Tickets for Bonnaroo will be available in the coming days via the festival’s official website.
