Alice Cooper, Kvelertak, Bad Brains Confirmed For This Year’s Bonnaroo

Posted by on February 14, 2012

It’s that time of year when all of the big Summer destination festivals announce their lineups. We’ve already heard Coachella’s lineup, and Metallica “surprised” us with their own festival. Now, we know who will be playing this year’s Bonnaroo. And with headliners like Phish, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Beach Boys, this year’s lineup somewhat makes Orion Music + More slightly more metal.

However, there are a few names confirmed for Bonnaroo 2012 that will certainly catch your eye. Namely, Alice Cooper, Kvelertak, and Bad Brains are a few of the bands that were announced today. Plus, although the band Battles is more math-rock than metal, their drummer John Stanier was formerly in Helmet. Also keep in mind that there are still more bands to be announced, meaning that there could potentially be more heavier acts added to the bill.

Tickets for this year’s Bonnaroo, being held on held from June 7 to 10 in Manchester, TN, will go on sale via the festival’s website on Saturday, February 18 at noon EST. You can check out the bands confirmed so far after the jump.
