Last night, the Bonnaroo 2016 lineup briefly leaked on the Bonnaroo app (part of it at least), and it was quickly taken down but not before someone could grab it put it on Reddit. A commenter suggests it's just the first wave, and the artists listed as headliners -- (Grateful) Dead & Co., LCD Soundsystem and Pearl Jam -- are just speculated headliners. (The poster also has misspellings like "Fidler.") The rest is listed in alphabetical order, and includes Big Grams, Blood Orange, Bully, Clutch, Death Cab for Cutie, Dungen, Father John Misty, Jason Isbell, Kamasi Washingotn, Kurt Vile, Lamb of God, Leon Bridges, M83, Mavis Staples, Miguel, Purity Ring, Shamir, Tame Impala, Vince Staples, Waxahatchee, Ween and more.

The lineup will officially be announced on Tuesday, January 19 on an episode of Conan, airing at 11 PM EST on TBS. The fest happens June 9-12 this year in its usual home of Manchester, TN. It's the festival's 15th anniversary, and in honor of that they're introducing some new improvements:

For the first time, Great State Park, home of Bonnaroo, will now feature its own permanent water line, allowing for the installation of more than 400 permanent toilets (38% of the total toilets onsite will be flushable), hundreds of permanent shower stalls (35% of the total shower stalls onsite), and a large number of water filling stations newly installed throughout the site.
More improvements for the 2017 festival are being planned too.

Tickets go on sale January 22 at noon EST.

Hundred Waters at Terminal 5 in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
100 Waters

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Nancy Whang (The Juan Maclean/LCD Soundsystem) (DJ Set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
An integral member of LCD Soundsystem and The Juan Maclean, Nancy Whang knows how to keep a dancefloor full. Perhaps she'll drop one of the new Juan Maclean tracks from their forthcoming album.

Zongo Junction, Chicano Batman, KariKatura @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's entertainment is headlined by Brooklyn afrobeat band Zongo Junction.

Hundred Waters, Mas Ysa @ Glasslands
Hundred Waters make more of their eccentric art pop on this year's excellent The Moon Rang Like A Bell, with more electronics this time around (but not like the kinds their OWSLA labelmates use).

Bubbles, VnessWolfChild, Ryan Power, Trabajo, Brian Chase, Raul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Dutch E Germ, Zero to 0 (Hisham Bharoocha & Ranjit Bhatnagar) @ Knockdown Center
The Knockdown Center is throwing a closing reception for its Anxious Spaces installation, with performances by Dutch E Germ, Bubbles, Brian Chase (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Trabajo, VenessWolfChild, Rul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Head and more. Entrance is $7-15 sliding scale.

DJ EZ, Todd Edwards, Maxmillion Dunbar, Ramona Lisa, J-Cush @ MoMA PS1
A good way to get out early for the Saturday of your July 4th Weekend is to head to MoMA PS1 for the all-day Warm Up with yet another lineup of forward thinking electronic music. The show is the NYC debut of UK garage vet DJ EZ, and also includes American house vet Todd Edwards, RVNG's Maxmillion Dunbar, Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek's solo project Ramona Lisa, and Lit City Trax's J-Cush.

DJ EZ, Kissy Sell Out @ Output's Panther Room
Keep the party going late night with DJ EZ in Output's Panther Room.

The Robert Glasper Experiment ft. Talib Kweli, Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), Aja Monet @ Prospect Park Bandshell
It's another free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park with a very diverse lineup headlined by jazz/hip hop collective The Robert Glasper Experiment who will be joined by Brooklyn rap great Talib Kweli.

Warthog, Leather Daddy, Jock's Blood, Ajax @ Saint Vitus
It's a great punk night at Saint Vitus, headlined by former The Men member Chris Hansell's band Warthog, who recently put out an excellent 7" on Iron Lung Records.

Widowspeak, Zachary Cale @ Union Pool
Union Pool's Saturday afternoon series "Summer Thunder" is a good one this week with Widowspeak and Zachary Cale. It's free, outside, with drink specials and the taco truck in the backyard (that actually serves brunch stuff), and a pretty fun way to spend your day.

Iron Chic, Cancers, Great Thunder, Now People @ Union Pool
Later that night at Union Pool, gruff Long Island punks Iron Chic return to Brooklyn for this show which is made a great double bill by Waxahatchee/Swearin' side project Great Thunder.
