Bonnaroo offers a lot more than just music. This year, the comedy theatre moves to an all new home, where Comedy Central will be filming specials featuring comedians, such as Bonnaroo mainstays Aziz Ansari and Brian Posehn, along with Steven Wright, Reggie Watts, Rhys Darby of Flight of The Conchords, and World Champion Judah Freidlander, of “30 Rock” fame, who will actually be presiding over a wedding following Beach Boy’s Sunday afternoon set.
Aside from the Comedy Theatre, one of the only other air conditioned places on the Farm is the Cinema Tent, which this year features An R.Kelly “Trapped in the Closet” sing-a-long, as well as appearances by Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell, who will be there supporting their new film Hit and Run. Also in attendance will be Bobcat Goldthwait, promoting his film God Bless America. Uniquely, tUnE-yArDs, Reggie Watts and Steven Bernstein will be providing musical accompaniment to select silent films. The tent will also play host to panel discussions featuring Alice Cooper, Charles Bradley, The Civil Wars, and others.
When it comes to the music though, the best thing about Bonnaroo is that it’s festival you can customize. There are no wrong combinations! Featured here are a few of the acts that we’re most looking forward to — be sure to catch our other preview playlist, featuring Radiohead, Feist, Little Dragon, Alabama Shakes + more here!
