Paul Simon will be among the headliners at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, and speculation is rampant that another Paul with a significant legacy will be on the bill as well.
Whether McCartney is indeed booked will be unveiled with the rest of the lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo, which will be announced throughout the day on Feb. 9. Tickets go on sale that day at 9 a.m. PST/noon EST.
Rather than announce the acts that will play the June 10-13 festival in Manchester, TN, promoters Superfly Productions and AC Entertainment will unveil performers throughout the day online. The goal is to generate conversations about the lineup a few acts at a time.
Simon’s only other scheduled performances are Feb. 16 as a guest at the Plastic Ono Band performance in Brooklyn, NY, and with old friend Art Garfunkel on April 24 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
