Nashville, Tenn. • The reunited Beach Boys will celebrate sunshine and summer at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival with Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish and Bon Iver.
The always eclectic four-day festival’s lineup also will include Skrillex, Foster the People, The Avett Brothers, The Shins, The Roots and Alice Cooper. It will be held June 7-10 on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn.
The lineup has something of a ripped-from-the-headlines feel. Several acts had notable nights at the Grammy Awards. The Beach Boys reunited at the ceremony. Bon Iver won best new artist and Skrillex took home three trophies. Two-time Grammy winners The Civil Wars are scheduled to play Bonnaroo just a few weeks before singer Joy Williams’ baby is due.
Tickets go on sale Saturday.
