Is it pretentious at all to call your festival lineup announcement a “new school annual holiday”? Bonnaroo doesn’t think so and is launching a Super Bowl style extravaganza lineup party on February 19, 2014, complete with a a SuperJam featuring The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds.
The Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon (or BLAM) as they call it will run from 9:00-9:30pm EST on Bonnaroo.com or via Xbox. All this will be proceeded by a two hour pre-show that includes Dave Matthews, Tenacious D, Kings of Leon, Phish, fun., The Lumineers, Jack Johnson, My Morning Jacket, J. Cole and many more. This of course begs the question –why not just throw a mini-festival in February for the lineup? Get on this for BLAM 2015!
There’s also going to be official watch parties. Here’s the list:
