Bonnaroo 2018 Lineup Announced: Eminem, Future, And The Killers Among Headliners
The Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tennessee is the place to be this coming summer. Must-see acts including Eminem, Future, and The Killers have all been confirmed as part of the lineup.
3 Huge Headliners
The massive summertime event, which is nearing its 20th anniversary as a festival, is likely to rival even Coachella for its impressively varied lineup of acts.
Eminem will headline the festival for its 17th year, alongside fellow mega acts The Killers and Muse. Last year's festival, in comparison, boasted U2, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Weeknd as headliners.
Joining them at the massive four-day event, which begins June 7, will be Paramore, Sheryl Crow, Khalid, Broken Social Scene, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Dua Lipa, and many more.
Reflecting a varied and diverse lineup, Bon Iver is set to play two unique sets at the event. The acoustic megastar's appearance there will cap off a year of touring beginning in Austin, Texas, on Jan. 20 that will also take in several dates on the other side of the pond in London.
The Killers, meanwhile, will conclude the North American leg of their tour next month, before headlining Boonaroo, Boston Calling, and Gulf Shores over a busy summer schedule.
Rap Star Revival
Arguably the biggest sell of Bonaroo's varied lineup, however, is Eminem, who made a huge splash in 2017 with his massively anticipated comeback album.
Returning star Eminem is set for a busy few months following a hiatus as he's also slated to play Coachella, Boston Calling, and the New York Governor's Ball this year.
He's currently storming the charts with the aptly titled Revival, which debuted at number one in the UK and features guest appearances from the big-name likes of Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran.
It hasn't all been smooth sailing, however, as although the album proved popular with his fanbase, music writers were less than enthused.
Eminem took aim at critics who disliked the album with a diss track, released to Spotify. In it, he claims that the negative feedback just makes him work harder.
Given his highly publicized tirade against President Trump, it's safe to say Eminem's 2018 festival appearances are set to be politically charged if nothing else.
The full lineup for Bonnaroo is on its official site. Tickets are on sale from 10 a.m. ET Friday, Jan. 12.
