Elton John and Kanye West will be among the artists who will perform during this summer's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn., organizers announced Wednesday.
The four-day music festival will run from June 12-15 with more than 125 bands and 20 comic acts performing on 13 stages. West hasn't performed at Bonnaroo since 2008 when his late-night set turned into a broad daylight set, which angered both fans and the rapper.
The 2014 concert line-up also includes Jack White, Lionel Richie, Vampire Weekend, Frank Ocean, The Avett Brothers from Concord, N.C., rapper Lauryn Hill, electronic music producer Zedd and others.
Last year's line-up was topped by Paul McCartney, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Mumford & Sons, who later had to move out due to an injury to bassist Ted Dwane. Jack Johnson performed as a replacement.
The announced comedians for this year include Taran Killam of “Saturday Night Live” and Hannibal Buress, the standup comedian and co-star on “Broad City.”
According to reports, Bonnaroo is among the top live-music gatherings of the year, much like the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California and the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts in Britain.
Bonnaroo, which will include 150 musical acts, dozens of comedians, arts and film, is produced and promoted by Superfly and AC Entertainment and draws about 80,000 people. Ticket sales for the festival will start from Saturday.
