Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup Led By Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons
February 19, 2013

"Weird Al" Yankovic
The 2013 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival used a unique method to announce its lineup this afternoon. In a one-hour webcast hosted by "Weird Al" Yankovic, the list of artists was unveiled by fans on webcams, a piñata, Jimmy Fallon, visits from oddball characters and various wacky games, along with a live performance from Portugal, The Man.

The lineup is topped by Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, with Wilco, Bjork, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, R. Kelly, The Lumineers and Wu-Tang Clan also among the major artists on the bill.

Also on board for Bonnaroo are David Byrne & St. Vincent, Passion Pit, The xx, The National, Kendrick Lamar, Grizzly Bear, The Gaslight Anthem, Of Monsters and Men, Animal Collective, Nas, ZZ Top, Cat Power, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Matt & Kim and many, many more acts. The webcast also ended with the "shocking" reveal that Yankovic himself will be performing at Bonnaroo. The lineup can be seen at, with additional acts still to be added.

Bonnaroo 2013 will run June 13-16 in its annual home of Manchester, TN.
