Bonnaroo today unveiled its 2016 lineup with a special feature on TBS’ Conan. The world renowned four-day multi-stage camping festival, celebrating “15 Years of Magic,” will take place June 9 – 12, at Great Stage Park, the spectacular 700-acre farm and event space located just 60 miles south of Nashville in Manchester, TN.

The 2016 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival marks the event’s 15th anniversary and as such, is being celebrated with more than 150 musicians, bands, and comedians performing across its 12 unique stages. The lineup features a strikingly deep roster of talent that includes Pearl Jam, Dead & Company (2 sets), LCD Soundsystem, J.

The Bonnaroo era began in 2002 and was almost immediately named one of the “50 Moments That Changed The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll” by Rolling Stone. Each year since has seen the annual event consistently expanding the parameters of what a music festival can offer in the 21st century. Being America’s only major all hours music festival, Bonnaroo presents fans with a seemingly infinite number of entertainment options over the course of its four days, most notably, its comedy tent, whose lineup has featured some of the most groundbreaking comedians of our time, including Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Louis CK, Zach Galifinakis, Chris Rock and more. The 2016 Bonnaroo Comedy Theatre lineup will be revealed this spring. Additionally, Bonnaroo’s 24-hour cinema tent offers fans an opportunity to catch an A-list array of one-of-a-kind happenings, spanning director spotlights, interactive screenings, live film scoring, and high energy Q&A sessions with special guest artists and actors.

Consistently searching for ways to improve the event each year, organizers have recently announced significant upgrades to the festival site, which will now feature its own water line allowing for more than 400 toilets and hundreds of showers, as well as a large number of additional water filling stations.

Equally important since the festival’s inception has been uncovering new ways to give back to the community. As a result, the Bonnaroo Works Fund (BWF) charity initiative was established, supporting a number of regional and national organizations devoted to improving arts, education, and environmental sustainability in communities across the country. In 2015, BWF donated more than $300,000 to upward of 50 organizations and has donated more than $7 million to over 100 organizations in total.

Bonnaroo is a truly global event, with tickets purchased in all 50 U.S. states and over 37 countries around the world. As one of the planet’s foremost musical events, Bonnaroo has brought together over a million fans, more than 1,600 artists and 150 comedians in its 15-year history.
