Phish, Childish Gambino, the Lumineers lead Bonnaroo 2019 lineup

Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone, and the Lumineers are just a handful of artists who will make their way to Tennessee in mid-June for Bonnaroo 2019. On Tuesday (Jan. 8), festival organizers unveiled the musically diverse lineup for the 2019 incarnation of the annual music-centric event.

Joining the aforementioned acts on this year’s bill are Hozier, Solange, Cardi B, the National, Kasey Musgraves, the Lonely Island, Mac DeMarco, Gucci Mane, John Prine, Beach House, Jim James, BROCKHAMPTON, Girl Talk, Deafheaven, Juice WRLD, Parquet Courts, Courtney Barnett, the Avett Brothers, and many more.

According to Bonnaroo’s website, the festival will host over 150 performers on over ten stages during the event.

This year will mark a special one for Phish as the band will play a total of three sets during the four-day festival. The band is scheduled to perform one set on Friday night (June 14) and two sets on Sunday (June 16). Phish made their Bonnaroo debut in 2009 where they shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen for three songs. They returned to the Bonnaroo stage in 2012 where they teamed up with Kenny Rogers for “The Gambler.”

The official lineup also boosts the return of the Grand Ole Opry with special guests. Those special guest will be revealed at a later date.

Tickets for the four-day music festival go on sale beginning this Thursday, Jan. 10, at noon ET. As like many other music festivals, Bonnaroo is offering a layaway plan for those who may be feeling the effects of the holiday season.

The Grateful Dead Say “Fare Thee Well” with Final Shows

There are only a handful of bands that have been able to make it to the 50th anniversary of the creation of the group and the Grateful Dead are making sure to celebrate it with the people who helped get them there; the fans.

2015 will mark the 50th anniversary since the inception of the Grateful Dead, and the surviving members will be giving fans three days to come out and celebrate with them at Chicago ‘s Soldier Field.

The three shows will take place July 3-5, almost 20 years after the band’s last performance with their late singer, Jerry Garcia, which also took place at Soldier Field. In place of Garcia, the remaining members of the band have enlisted Phish frontman, Trey Anastasio, to take the role of singer during those three days.

For those hoping that this will lead to the Grateful Dead heading out on the road for a trip down memory lane, the band have already said that it’s unlikely the band will embark on a tour.

“These will be the last shows with the four of us together,” said guitarist Bob Weir.

Reportedly, Bonnaroo had offered the surviving members of the band almost $3 million to headline this year’s festival, but they decided that they wanted to celebrate the “gold” anniversary by doing their own thing for fans.

Fan club pre-sale tickets will take place on Feb. 12 and 13 with public ticket sales beginning on Feb. 14.
