The Bonnaroo lineup dropped Tuesday, January 7 for the 2020 festival.

Tool, Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey and Vampire Weekend are just a few of the artists who appear on this year’s Bonnaroo lineup. 

Although the lineup is much less mainstream from the previous years, this year’s lineup seems to fall back to Bonnaroo’s roots, with multiple trending indie rock bands. After delving into the lineup, it’s not hard to notice there is something for everyone’s music taste. 

For the pop fans, the lineup features Miley Cyrus, Lizzo and Lana Del Rey. 

For the rap crowd, DaBaby, Young Thug, Kevin Gates, Denzel Curry and Megan Thee Stallion can be found on the lineup. 

For the indie and alternative rockers,Tame Impala, Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Glass Animals, Briston Maroney and many more can be found across all four days.

Jason Isbell and Morgan Wallen add in some country to the lineup.

And for the late night ravers, Bassnecter and Flume are set to perform. 

Students have had mixed opinions about the lineup. Junior Andie Clutter stated, “This year’s lineup has been my favorite in a while. Not that I didn’t enjoy and love the others in past years, but the variety and artists have been the best in my opinion!” 

Senior Karie Wooten had a different opinion. “I like the bonnaroo lineup, but I feel like last year’s was better because there were so many more artists that I knew. But this year I only know like five or six artists,” said Wooten.

Whether you are hyped up, on the fence or in your Bonnablues about this year’s line, Bonnaroo is still a rare experience that everyone should participate in at least once in his or her life.
