Bonnaroo Announces 2016 Late Night Sets, Artist Additions


Bonnaroo‘s 15h anniversary fest is approaching fast, and that means more and more news will soon be rolling in! Set to take place June 9-12 in Manchester, TN, ‘Roo unveiled its 2016 lineup back in January, then came one step closer to detailing this year’s schedule with the announcement of daily lineups earlier this month. While we wait on a few dozen club stages bands to still be added, the main bill just grew a little bigger with the addition of Bryson Tiller and Bob Moses! Not only that, but another fan-favorite Bonnaroo element, late night sets, have also been revealed! Along with Tiller and Moses, and previously announced late night performers Tame Impala, the after-dark slate of acts (who go on after the evening’s headliners have played) includes Miguel, The Chainsmokers, SuperJam, Big Grams, Purity Ring, Zeds Dead, Adventure Club, Blood Orange, and RL Grime. No big surprises there, with a typical skew towards EDM, hop hop, and r&b; however, it does break the pattern of metal and/or legacy acts that have populated late night in recent years, so perhaps there will be more to come. Grab your tickets here, and keep an eye on our daily Band of the Day previews to get familiar with this year’s whole lineup!
