In addition to landing all the heavy hitters on the summer festival circuit this year – Arcade Fire, My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons – the guys responsible for Bonnaroo (who founded their production company, Superfly Presents, here in NOLA) put together a special treat for their hometown:
As one of the special programming highlights of its 10th year, Bonnaroo is excited to announce a rare joint appearance by Dr. John and The Original Meters recreating the legendary 1974 album Desitively Bonnaroo in its entirety, the source of the festival’s moniker.
The 10th Bonnaroo Music Festival will be home to a few more reunions as well: The surviving members of Buffalo Springfield are scheduled to share a stage, and a formal Superjam – curated by The Doctor and The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach – makes it’s valiant return to the programming schedule. Other artists appearing include 2010 Voodoo performers Florence and the Machine, Jazz Fest favorites Widespread Panic, New Orleans’ own Preservation Hall Jazz Band (joining Del McCoury), not to mention DâM-FunK, Deer Tick and Portugal. The Man, who can all proudly say they tore the roof off One Eyed Jacks in the past year.
