The Bonnaroo Lineup hit all platforms of social media on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. The music and arts festival had left clues as to who would be playing, but had not confirmed until now. There will be some returning artists, such as Phish, a Superjam curated by GRiZ, and the returning of the Grand Ole Opry. More information on the Grand Ole Opry and the Superjam will be released at a later date. However, what we know of the two is that they are a returning feature from previous years.


To make the assessment of the lineup easier, they have been sorted into six main categories: Hip Hop, Rave, Indie, Rock, Country, and Pop. Electronic Dance music, Dubstep, Trap music and the likes all fall under the category of Rave music. All music with an Indie or Folk background have been grouped into Indie music, and all types of Rock, Blues and Metal bands are under the Rock category.
