Bonnaroo lineup partially announced

Not to be outdone by that other US festival, the headliners and some other acts for the 2006 Bonnaroo festival were announced:

"Radiohead, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello & the Imposters, Beck, Bonnie Raitt and Buddy Guy are among the acts lined up to play the fifth annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, to be held June 16-18 in Manchester, Tenn. The festival is produced by Superfly Presents and A.C. Entertainment. Tickets go on sale Feb. 11.

Though Bonnaroo's roots are firmly planted in the jam-band scene, this year's lineup tilts more toward mainstream and indie rock, with bands like My Morning Jacket, Death Cab For Cutie, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cat Power, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks and Bright Eyes booked alongside more traditional jam scene acts like Blues Traveler, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, moe., G. Love & Special Sauce and Medeski Martin & Wood."
