Our Epic Pre-Bonnaroo Playlist Will Have You Humming All The Way To Manchester

Bonnarroo’s 2013 lineup is certainly the most eclectic in the Manchester, Tennessee festival’s folksy, crunchy, muddy history. Of course there are the jam band extravaganzas like Soul SuperJam featuring James James of My Morning Jacket, but appearances by all-star hip hop performers including A$AP Rocky and Nas, indie mainstays Grizzly Bear, and boomer heroes Paul Mcartney and Tom Petty mean Bonnarroo has something for everybody.
There’s even a new crop of indie artists that fit in nicely with the festival’s history of altered states and guitar noodling (Tame Impala and Animal Collective, we’re looking at you). In that spirit, we’ve created a playlist of more than 40 of our favorite tracks to highlight the festival's broad range of performers. From R. Kelly to Wilco, prepare to get excited.
