After hints and clues, Bonnaroo’s 2008 lineup’s been announced. They’ve confirmed Lez Zeppelin, but not Led Zeppelin. Though Robert Plant will show up to shuffle along with Alison Krauss. In their seventh year, Bonnaroo’s also bringing the aging thrash of Metallica (along with the younger crush of Mastodon) and the AT&T loving EdVed and his Pearl Jam to the Manchester, TN farm. Jack Johnson’s playing this one, too. Break out the greens. Which you’ll need to save for Willie “Twin Towers Imploded” Nelson. There are also some big ’07 critical and fan faves like M.I.A., Against Me!, and Kanye and ’08 upstarts Vampire Weekend. All said, over 100 bands, more than 20 comedians, across 13 stages for four days (June 12-15) … and, one silent disco. You do the math. Full lineup (as it stands) after the jump.
