This week has seen the lineup announcements from two big fish in the summer festival game, California’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival and New York’s Governors Ball. Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music Festival has gotten into the game as well, and will announce their lineup on Tuesday, January 13.
And here’s the hook — the fans are announcing it themselves.
People are urged to call 1-844-ROO-2015 on Tuesday between 6 and 9 p.m. Eastern time. The caller will then get a band that they can announce themselves via social media. By day’s end, we should have all 125 participating bands and artists, both flooring our social media and on the Bonnaroo home page.
Watch the promo video for B.L.A.M. — Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon — below. Last year’s event drew an estimated 90,000-plus spectators to the four-day fest, and headliners included Elton John, Kanye West, Jack White, Lionel Richie, and Vampire Weekend.
This year’s ‘Roo happens June 11 to 14 at Great Stage Park.
