After months of speculation, the hour of revelation is now upon us. For all our bitching about bands not playing here it's a nice consolation to have the karmic payback of the largest concert event in North America being a mere 60 miles southeast of our--non-country--culturally-starved metropolis. So buckle the fuck up, Nashville, here is your 2009 Bonnaroo lineup--after the jump, of course. We weren't told which days or stages these artists are playing on, but that is likely to be on the Bonnaroo official site tomorrow. Festivities begin Jun. 11 and continue through Jun. 14. Tickets are $249.50 and can even be put on a payment plan. Let us know whom you're excited to see!
