Bonnaroo has announced its initial 2017 lineup, which includes U2‘s first-ever headlining festival performance and appearances by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Weeknd, Margo Price, and dozens of other artists. The four-day event will showcase over 100 artists June 8-11 in Manchester, Tennessee, at Great Stage Park, the 700-acre farm and event space that has hosted the festival since its inception in 2002.
Other artists performing this year include Chance The Rapper, Major Lazer, Flume, The XX, Lorde, Travis Scott, Marshmello, Big Gigantic, Glass Animals, Future Islands, Portugal, The Man, Car Seat Headrest, Louis The Child, Flatbush Zombies, The Orwells, and Lucy Dacus.
The festival continues to expand and improve upon its pursuit of true sustainability each year, and 2016 saw the grand opening of more than 400 permanent toilets and hundreds of permanent shower stalls and water filling stations, all made possible by the park’s investment in its own devoted water line. The festival has been recognized twice by the state of Tennessee, winning the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Pursuit of Excellence Award for its environmentally-friendly ways.
