Childish Gambino, Solange and Cardi B to headline Bonnaroo 2019
Festival season is about to be in full swing.
A week after the lineup for Coachella was revealed, Bonnaroo is the next major festival to follow suit.
According to the long-running music and arts festival, this year’s headlining acts include Cardi B, Childish Gambino, Solange, Post Malone and Phish.
The 2019 installment is set to return to Manchester, Tennessee from June 13 to June 16. Additional acts announced on Tuesday (Jan. 8) include Brockhampton, Gucci Mane, Lil Dicky, Juice WRLD, Girl Talk, K. Flay, Tyla Yaweh, Odesza, the Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves, the Lonely Island, Little Simz and Beach House, among others.
The festival, which spans across genres including hip hop, R&B, electronic, indie rock, bluegrass, pop and folk, attracts over 80,000 in attendance and has grown exponentially since its inaugural year of 2002.
According to festival organizers, Friday night will see a headlining set from Childish Gambino, who is also slated to headline Coachella in April. He previously hinted at retiring his Childish Gambino artist moniker, leaving fans in a state of curiosity regarding what the multifaceted Donald Glover has up his sleeve.
Cardi B was recently slated to headline Rolling Loud, marking the first time a female artist performed in the premier slot. Her performance made countless headlines after her estranged husband, Offset, interrupted her set to ask for her to forgive him. The couple has since been spotted vacationing together, an instance that Bardi hilariously explained was strictly for intimate reasons.
Given that Solange is also billed for Coachella, many are speculating that her festival schedule implies a new album is on the horizon. Her latest offering, A Seat at the Table, was released in 2016. The singer has not yet addressed the rumors surrounding what she possibly is working on.
The festival’s full lineup and ticketing information can be found on Bonnaroo’s site. Tickets are set to go on sale this Thursday (Jan. 10).
