Bonnaroo — "the best on the streets" in French — has been around since 2002 and originally featured jam bands but eventually expanded to showing pop performances, solo artists and comedians.
This year there are more than 130 performances scheduled for the festival with over 10 different stages. The festival’s Twitter page tweeted the show will be U2’s first ever U.S. festival show. Bannaroo is a part of its upcoming summer tour celebrating their 1978 album The Joshua Tree’s 30th anniversary.
