Kendrick Lamar, The Roots, Black Star And Yelawolf Join 2012 Bonnaroo Lineup

After Lil Wayne and Eminem split headlining duties in 2011, K-Dot, Luda and others are added to 2012(TM)s Bonnaroo lineup.

Jay-Z and Stevie Wonder took Bonnaroo headlining duties in 2010, followed by Eminem and Lil Wayne in 2011. While their cult like following makes Radiohead the favorite for headlining duties this year, some formidable Hip Hop artists will also be joining the bill.

Kendrick Lamar, The Roots, Black Star, Yelawolf, Ludacris, Mac Miller, Childish Gambino, Flying Lotus and Danny Brown have also been listed as scheduled performers.

The Roots have previously performed at the Manchester, Tennessee music festival in 2007, with Black Thought shouting out the event on Thurz’s “Riot,” rhyming, “I’ll beat your ass like your mama do / Smoking catatonic chronic out in Bonnaroo.” Black Star will be appearing on the list of performers for the second consecutive year, and Talib Kweli also performed as a soloist in 2008.

A full roster of performers is listed below. This year’s edition of Bonnaroo will take place from June 7 – 10 in Manchester, Tennessee. For tickets and more information, visit the official Bonnaroo website.
