When: June 12th-15th
Where: Manchester, Tennessee
Why Go: This one is gonna make headlines – whether it's the dawn of Elton John and Lionel Ritchie's "cool phase," the first Skrillex "SuperJam" or the controversial return of Kanye West to the home of his ill-fated 4:40 a.m. performance. But even if you're not feeling the headliners – or any headliners – Bonnaroo remains the most diverse of the big-ticket festivals, and you can spend a weekend with metal bands (Meshuggah, Mastodon), African legends (Master Musicians of Jajouka, Seun Kuti), EDM heavyweights (Kaskade, Zedd) or just watch Hannibal Buress at the comedy tent.
15 Must-See Acts: Kanye West, Skrillex, Frank Ocean, Jack White, Mastodon, Zedd, Disclosure, Janelle Monae, Danny Brown, Pusha T, the Flaming Lips, Elton John, Master Musicians of Jajouka, Phoenix, Damon Albarn
