Bonnaroo 2012 Lineup Announced! [Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, The Beach Boys and more]

FINALLY!

Bonnaroo[dot]com has just posted the official Bonnaroo 2012 lineup. It’s not terribly unlike that featured on the leaked ‘Roo poster we posted here last week. The most noticeable difference being that this lineup features that Brian Wilson-in-tow reunited Beach Boys, and that Phish is (mercifully) scheduled to only perform once. The biggest disappointment (both in my opinion and in fact) is, of course, that Prince is still not on the list. Fuck that. This year at the festival I’m gonna start a Prince! Prince! Prince! Prince! chant before every What Stage set in hopes that it catches on and festival organizers get the message.

Anyway, without further ado, here is your Bonnaroo Class of 2012:

Radiohead
