Is it that summer festival season yet?
After the long-awaited anticipation of the 2018 Bonnaroo lineup, fans of the fest can now rest assured as the artist list debuted on Tuesday morning (Jan. 9). Among the eclectic acts holds a little room for country music with Brothers Osborne and Midland joining in on the fun during the Tennessee music weekend.
While Bonnaroo is known for bringing all flavors of music together for one massive concert party, both Brothers Osborne and Midland snagged sets on respective stages during the Bonnaroo event. Although set times don’t go up until the weekend nears closer, country fans can get their groove on to their favorite genre thanks to the bands added for this year’s festivities.
The Grand Ole Opry will also bring its iconic set-up to Manchester by hosting its own set of artists during the festival. Acts slated for the first-ever Opry event at a festival will be announced at a later date.
Headlining Bonnaroo in 2018 will be Eminem, The Killers and Muse. Other musicians slated for the festival on The Farm include Future, Dua Lipa, Paramore, Sheryl Crow, Bon Iver and dozens more exciting sets ahead.
One small discretion that some country fans may have to take in consideration with Bonnaroo, though, is that it’s held on the same weekend in June as that of CMA Music Festival in Nashville. While some festival-goers manage to pop around to both music events, the balance will even become difficult for the country acts if they plan on making their way to perform at each weekend show.
Bonnaroo 2018 will be held in Manchester, Tennessee, on the iconic field set-up dubbed “The Farm,” from June 7-10. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, January 12, at 10 a.m. EST.
