Bonnaroo 2011 To Feature Arcade Fire, Buffalo Springfield, Eminem, Lil Wayne

    The annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn., is usually a pretty big event, matching some of the biggest names in music with lots of very high college kids. When the festival goes down this year from June 9 through 12, those kids will have to budget their time pretty well to see bands like the reunited Buffalo Springfield (featuring Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay, Rick Rosas and Joe Vitale, whom you may have heard of), Lil Wayne, Eminem, Arcade Fire, the Decemberists, Girl Talk, Wiz Khalifa, Loretta Lynn, Big Boi, and dozens of others. It’s enough to make your head spin.

    NPR has already announced that it will be webcasting and broadcasting all four days of concerts, and more outlets will probably step up as well. So even if you can’t make it down to Tennessee, you can still catch Buffalo Springfield’s only festival appearance of the year.
