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.

As mentioned, Bonnaroo 2014 happens June 12 - 15 in Manchester, TN. The fest has already been dropping hints as to who's going to play this year (Kanye and Elton John seem likely as headliners) but will finally spill the beans tonight via a web show called "Blam!" which airs at 9 PM EST on Bonnaroo.com (or an Xbox app). (Maybe you watched last year's with Weird Al Yankovich and Portugal the Man.) This year's announcement special is hosted by SNL's Taran Killam and Broad City's Hannibal Buress, with a "superjam" between The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds.
There's also a pre-Blam! web event from 7 - 9 PM EST featuring live cover song performances from Tenacious D, Kings Of Leon, Phish, My Morning Jacket, and others.

After busting up the gang in 2000, snarky mid-'90s piano trio Ben Folds Five reunited this year with a new album on the way and a tour, which they're on now. The tour stops at Central Park Summerstage tonight (9/14), their first NYC show in 12 years. Tickets for tonight's show are still available. BFF will also return to the NYC area for a show at Port Chester's Capitol Theatre on October 9 with Kate Miller Heidke (tickets) and a couple days later they will play opening night of New York Comic Con on October 11. Tckets for that are still available too.
Ben Folds Five, best known for their ballad "Brick" back when people still held up lighters at shows (1997), have a new album, The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, which is their first since 1999 and is out next week (9/18). The record was funded via Pledgemusic and is a little mellower than the bouncy, fuzzy pop of their Clinton-era singles like "Underground" and "The Battle of Who Could Care Less" but his sense of humor seems intact. You can listen to tracks at SPIN, TeamCoco and Rolling Stone.
Ben Folds Five are also playing Florida's Deluna Fest which happens September 21 - 23 in Pensacola Beach, FL and also features Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Bob Mould doing Copper Blue, Diplo, Florence & the Machine, Band of Horses, and many more. Tickets for Deluna Fest are still available and full line-up is below.
A list of all Ben Folds Five dates, a few classic clips and that Deluna Fest lineup are below...
