Bonnaroo 2008 Lineup Announced - Pearl Jam and Metallica Are Headliners

Bonnaroo just blew Coachella out of the water.

The initial lineup for the Manchester, Tennessee festival has been announced.

Pearl Jam and Metallica grabbed the headlining spot but also scoring a place on the roster are Kanye West, Broken Social Scene, The Racounteurs, Death Cab For Cutie, My Morning Jacket and Rilo Kiley among many many others.

Bonnaroo is also heavy on "classic" acts. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson, The Allman Brothers Band, Levon Helm and B.B. King are all making the trek to Tennesse.

No Led Zeppelin reunion but hey, Plant can't stay on the road with Krauss forever!

Bonnaroo will invade nice polite TN this year from June 12-15.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 16th.
