[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Buffalo Springfield[/lastfm] is one of the headliners performing at Bonnaroo 2011, it was announced today.
The reformed 1960s group featuring original members Neil Young, Richie Furay, and Stephen Stills played together for the first time in over 40 years at Neil and Pegi Young’s Bridge School Benefit concert in California last October, and they sounded fantastic. Now the band is hitting the road, and will make a stop in Tennessee for the four-day Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, now in its tenth year.
Another highlight will be a rare joint appearance by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dr. John[/lastfm] and The Original [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Meters[/lastfm] recreating, in its entirety, the legendary 1974 album Desitively Bonnaroo, the source of the festival’s moniker. And speaking of Dr. John, he’ll perform in a Superjam with the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Keys[/lastfm]’ Dan Auerbach.
Other festival performers include Widespread Panic, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket and Lil’ Wayne, Eminem, Arcade Fire, String Cheese Incident, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Mumford & Sons, The Strokes, The Decemberists, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Florence + the Machine, Girl Talk, Primus, Big Boi, Gregg Allman, Robyn, Deerhunter, Sleigh Bells, Amos Lee, Opeth, Del McCoury and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Wanda Jackson, and The Walkmen.
