Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup; Weird Al Announces Paul McCartney, Mumford and Sons, Tom Petty, BJORK, WILCO

One thing that sets Bonnaroo apart from other similar music festivals is that it seems to have a unique sense of humor, both at the festival itself and in the hype leading up to the weekend. In what will hopefully be a first in the start to a tradition, Bonnaroo produced 'BLAM', The Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon, which was a live streamed hourlong telethon hosted by Weird Al. Throughout the Megathon, names were revealed slowly through games like 'Bobbing For Meat', celebrity guests like Jimmy Fallon, and from a talking pinata who shit out names. Yep, that happened. Think Pee Wee's Playhouse mixed with Adult Swim and a heavy dose of Weird Al.

This was all part of a three hour block of entertainment – hour one featured a mix of classic performances  from years past, hour two was the Megathon which included performances from Portugal. The Man and Weird Al, and hour three is Mumford and Sons full set from 2011. Ticket information still hasn't been revealed yet, but you can see the complete line-up below.
