I hope you've all started slathering yourselves with SPF 5000 sunscreen, because we are a scant 41 days away from the start of Bonnaroo. That's 41 short days until we have to suffer through not one, but two Phish sets — echoing through our campsite and driving us jam band deniers to the brink of total madness. Also, Radiohead will be there. And as it turns out, a whole hell of a lot of local bands.
Earlier this week, Bonnaroo dropped the full lineup for this year's cafe stages — Cafe Where and The [Insert Beer Sponsor Here] Music Lounge — with Nashville artists taking up nearly a quarter of the time at the Roo's smallest stages.
Y'all already know by now that By Lightning!, Wild Cub and Fly Golden Eagle will be repping Nashville at the 'Roo this year after winning their respective Road to Bonnaroo competitions, but they'll also be joined by a whole slew of other locals, including 2011 RTB winner Caitlin Rose, Cherub, Chuck Mead, Glossary, James Wallace and The Naked Light (shown above), Katie Herzig, and PUJOL.
Notably missing from the group are Colorfeels, whose disqualification in the first round of RTB launched a hearty Facebook campaign in their favor. But Kenny Rogers was added to the lineup, too, so I guess there's that. Better luck next time, fellas.
You can find a full listing of the cafe artists after the jump.
