Opeth, Kylesa Booked For Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival

Opeth
The initial lineup for the 2011 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has been announced and as usual, there are not many metal acts on the bill. There’s more rappers than there are metallers. But there are three or four bands worth going to Bonnaroo to see.

Believe it or not, Opeth have been tapped for the 10th annual four-day camping and music festival, which will be held on June 9 through June 12 on the same beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles south of Nashville.

Also playing are Kylesa, Primus and The Sword. Beyond that, the lineup is pretty poppy, hipster and trendy. We have the full lineup after the jump. I’m still sort of shocked that Opeth have been tapped for this thing. I wouldn’t have expected the Bonnaroo bookers to know about Opeth, but, I guess they do, making my assumption wrong. That full lineup after the jump.
