No Country’s Guide to Bonnaroo 2016: Our 30 Most-Anticipated Performers

Bonnaroo2016-Top30Header

This weekend, June 9-13, we head back to nearby Manchester, TN for the 15th year of Bonnaroo! As the epic festival fast approaches (check out our breakdown of ticket and camping options if you’re the procrastinating type), and as our exhaustive coverage of every single performer on the bill winds down, we wanted to help you get prepared with a few special features. We already brought you a guide to all of the Nashville-based performers on this year’s bill, and, today, we present our overall 30 most-anticipated acts, collectively chosen by our team of contributors headed to the fest. Below, you’ll find our picks in ascending order, with links to our more in-depth Band of the Day features, and well as stage and time info, social media, and song previews. Be sure to add all of these artists to your to-Roo list, and we’ll see you on the farm!
