Bonnaroo announcing 2015 lineup a month early, with a twist
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Bonnaroo is announcing the music fest’s lineup for this year’s event a month earlier than usual, but there’s a twist.
The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1AMXHTQ ) says the 2015 Bonnaroo performers will be announced Tuesday, one at a time in a sort of social media relay.
A toll-free hotline is being set up at (844) ROO-2015 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Callers will receive the name of a Bonnaroo performer and be asked to post the name to social media using the hashtag bonnaroo.
The festival will verify social media posts as names are announced and piece the lineup together on http://www.bonnaroo.com .
Bonnaroo is set for June 11 to 14 in Manchester, Tenn. Tickets go on sale Jan. 17.
Elton John, Jack White and Kanye West headlined last year’s festival.
