After a brief digital tease with a false report streaking across social networks, the 2012 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival celebrated St. Valentine’s Day by announcing its musical artist lineup for the 11th trip to Manchester, Tennessee June 7-19.
Headliners included 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Red Hot Chili Peppers, fresh from their Grammy performances The Beach Boys with Brian Wilson and Skrillex as well as other artists including Radiohead, Phish, Bon Iver, Foster The People and The Civil Wars.
Bonnaroo also announced that tickets for the 2012 festival go on sale Saturday Feb. 18; something like a late Valentine’s Day present for those who messed up yesterday and bought their lover funny socks.
