MANCHESTER, Tenn. (WATE) – Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on Tuesday released the list of artists coming to Tennessee this summer for one of America’s largest festivals.

Headlining the festival are alternative rock bands Tool and Tame Impala while Lizzo becoming the first-ever female headliner in Bonnaroo history.

Popstar and Tennessee-native Miley Cyrus leads the next group of marquee performers that includes classic rockers Oysterhead, electronic DJs Bassnectar and Flume, Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Grace Potter and Leon Bridges.

2020 follows one of the most successful years in the festival’s history. 2019 was Bonnaroo’s first sell-out since 2013 when Paul McCartney closed out the festival.

This will be the 18th edition of Bonnaroo, which first began in 2002. The festival is held in Manchester, Tennessee.

In December, Bonnaroo organizers announced Exit 111, a rock festival held at the same location as Bonnaroo, would not return in 2020. The festival was a collaboration by Knoxville-based organizers AC Entertainment and C3 Presents.
