Once more into the Port-A-Potty-stocked breach, dear friends. For the 17th time in as many years, hordes of self-absorbed narcissists will descend upon Manchester, Tennessee, for a four-day weekend of music and debauchery—and the rest of us will pay good money to watch them perform.
As always, the lineup of artists is deep and overflowing with a bevy of different genres, styles, and performers, the better to fill the festival’s four stages with a nonstop barrage of sound. (Including all through the night, if you’re a fan of Bonnaroo’s DJ-centric Kalliope stage.) The 2018 headliners are Eminem, The Killers, and (sigh) Muse, followed by heavy hitters like Bon Iver, Future, Sturgill Simpson, Bassnectar, Khalid, Paramore, Alt-J, Sheryl Crow, and dozens more—more than 150 in total, which, again, unfortunately includes Muse. The complete list of artists is below, so you can start planning now for which campground area you want to stay in (may we suggest avoiding the “Fun SuperJam Camp” area at all costs, unless you enjoy being accosted by dudes with acoustic guitars), which delicious food experiences to sample, and how many bottles of Purell to last you 96 hours.
