Bonnaroo Targets Hip-Hop & Indie Crowd In Least Crunchy Lineup Yet

We've already locked down the lineup for Coachella and the headliners for Pitchfork, but now we have another heavy weight for the summer's festival season to look forward to. That's right, Bonnaroo has just announced its lineup for this year's festival in Manchester, Tennessee.

Among the headliners are Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, and Wilco, with the jam bands that once defined the festival taking a backseat to indie and pop (longtime associates Phish aren't even listed on this year's bill). We can also expect performances by Björk, The xx, and R. Kelly, who may look familiar from other soon-to-be happening festivals this year. While Earl Sweatshirt and Kendrick Lamar aren't necessarily who we'd have associated with the festival, we can honestly say this year's lineup looks like one of the festival's best.

If you like what you see, tickets go on sale on Saturday, February 23, at 12 p.m. EST at Bonnaroo.
