Bonnaroo is announcing it's 2010 lineup today.

Bonnaroo will take place this year at the infamous farm in Manchester, Tennessee on June 10-13, 2010.  Today they are officially announcing the initial lineup.  However, this year they are announcing the lineup one by one throughout the day today on their Myspace page.  The bands invited to play Bonnaroo this year have also been given permission to announce their appearance at this years festival through their respective social media outlets.  We will be updating the lineup as we get information throughout the day.

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is an annual, four to five-day music festival, created and produced by Superfly Productions and AC Entertainment, first held in 2002. The festival is held at Great Stage Park on a 700 acre (2.8 km²) farm in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles (97 km) southeast of Nashville, Tennessee and 60 miles (97 km) northwest of Chattanooga, Tennessee. The main attractions of the festival are the multiple stages of live music, featuring a diverse array of musical styles including indie rockworld musichip hopjazzamericanabluegrasscountry musicfolkgospelreggaeelectronica, and other alternative music. The festival began with a primary focus on jam bands, but has diversified greatly in recent years. The festival features craftsmen and artisans selling unique products, food and drink vendors, and many other activities including some put on by various sponsors. Sponsors of the festival are required to provide free activities for attendees.

The word Bonnaroo, popularized by New Orleans R&B giant Dr. John with his 1974 album Desitively Bonnaroo, means for “a really good time.” It is a Ninth Ward slang construction taken from the French “bon” meaning “good,” and “rue” from the French “street,” translating to “the best on the streets.”[1] The name was chosen both for its literal meaning and to honor the rich Louisiana music tradition that inspired the organizers’ desire to provide many styles of quality live music for appreciative fans.

On January 10, 2007, Bonnaroo organizers Superfly Productions and AC Entertainment purchased a major portion of the site, where the annual music festival is held. The purchase of 530 acres (2.1 km2) encompassed all of the performance areas and much of the camping and parking area used for the annual festival; the festival will continue to lease another 250 acres (1.0 km2) that currently serve as additional parking and camping. Since its inception, Bonnaroo has contributed more than $1 million directly to Coffee County organizations. In addition to annual charitable contributions, the festival’s activities provide annual revenue to the county. Measured in a 2005 study, the economic impact of the event on Coffee County was more than $14 million in business revenues and more than $4 million in personal income.[2]
