Eminem And Lil Wayne To Headline Bonnaroo

Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole, Big Boi and others join Eminem and Lil Wayne to give Bonnaroo a decidedly Hip Hop vibe for the festival's tenth anniversary.

For the second consecutive year, a Hip Hop act will headline Tennessee’s annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. After Jay-Z shared top billing with Stevie Wonder in 2010, Eminem and Lil Wayne will headline the 2011 edition, which marks the tenth anniversary of Bonnaroo. Eminem is currently confirmed to headline Chicago’s Lollapalooza, and he’s rumored as the headlining act for the U.K.’s Glastonbury festival as well.

Should the pair perform their collaborations “Forever,” “No Love” and “Drop the World” together, it would cap off a string of public appearances that was only briefly interrupted during Lil Wayne’s stint in Rikers Island. Since lobbying to work with Em in 2008, Wayne has performed with Eminem at the Grammy Awards, “Saturday Night Live” and a few other venues.

The 2010 edition of Bonnaro featured acts such as Jay-Z, Damian Marley and Nas and Kid Cudi, the tenth anniversary keeps the tradition going. Wiz Khalifa, Big Boi, J. Cole are scheduled to appear. For those planning to be in the Tennessee area from June 10 through 12, the full Bonnaroo lineup is listed below.
