Bonnaroo is always massive, though you've got to hand it to them with this year's lineup. The four-way pull of Elton John, Kanye West, Lionel Richie and Jack White covers an astonishing amount of bases from young to old, rock to pop, and old to new. Then you've got the festival mainstays, including Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Skrillex, Cut Copy and Head and the Heart. Upstarts, like Jake Bugg and The Naked and Famous, are always a given, too, though Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill and the recently reunited Neutral Milk Hotel are more unexpected. Anyplace that puts Omar Souleyman, Drive-By Truckers and Danny Brown on the same bill cares a great deal about music fans from all realms of taste.
