The 2011 Bonnaroo lineup was announced today. I wish I could say that I’m excited about it, but there are very few bands playing this year that sound interesting enough for me to want to make a trip to the festival. It’s just a little too hippie’ish for me, but if you’re into, it should be a fun time! Some notable bands playing are Buffalo Springfield, Girl Talk, Primus, Explosions in the Sky, Sleigh Bells, Best Coast, Junip, Loretta Lynn (does this mean Jack White will make an appearance??) and The Black Angels…who I need to see sometime this year. The festival takes place June 9-12, 2011.
