Bonnaroo Is More Diverse Than Ever

What do Metallica, Willie Nelson, and B.B. King have in common other than being great artists? You’re right; they are all appearing at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.

While many Tennesseans still think “traffic jam” when they hear the word Bonnaroo, this festival is big enough now to draw the rock legends as headliners as well as speculation that Led Zeppelin will play here. While they indicate Led Zeppelin will not appear, the festival organizers have joined in the fun by including Lez Zeppelin, a female Zeppelin cover band in the lineup.

Although Led Zeppelin won’t play Bonnaroo, Robert Plant will appear along with Alison Krauss, his new musical partner. Hmmm, if one fourth of Led Zeppelin (including Jason Bonham) are already there, maybe……

Tickets go on sale starting 11 AM this Saturday the 9th through www.bonnaroo.com.
