Headliners include Elton John, Jack White, Lionel Richie and Kanye West (who has a checkered past with the festival after a much-maligned 2008 performance).

Other artists of note for Elmore readers are the Avett Brothers, a yet-to-be-announced Bluegrass Superjam hosted by comedian Ed Helms, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bobby Womack, Dr. Dog, Yonder Mountain String Band, Drive-By Truckers, Shovels & Rope, Carolina Chocolate Drops and J. Roddy Walston & the Business. 

As usual, the festival will feature a broad range of genres, from rock to electronica to world music, as well as film screenings, dance parties, stand-up comedy and a 5K race. 

Tickets go on sale Feb. 22,  and start at $249.50. During the festival, Bonnaroo becomes the seventh largest city in Tennessee.

More acts will be announced later. See the full lineup here.
