4:15 p.m. Update: According to several media outlets, including The Tennessean, Bonnaroo will officially unveil its 2009 lineup at 12:00 a.m. EST tonight! As always, we’ll post it as soon as we get it.

Also, we can officially confirm, via independent sources, that Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and Phish are among the headliners for this year’s Bonnaroo.


Bearing a Coachella-like fiasco, the Bonnaroo Music Festival will officially unveil its 2009 lineup on Tuesday, February 3rd. Seeing as that means we’ll officially know who will be stopping by the farm between June 11 and 14 in less than 36 hours – or sooner if we get a leak – we figured now would be a good time to open things up to you, the reader. Feel free to use this post to share your hopes, dreams, predictions, and any news you’ve found.
