Bonnaroo Country/Americana 2012

Music Fests

Hopefully, your mind is open to the wide variety of musical styles to be found at Bonnaroo this year, but if your tastes are more streamlined you can still build a fantastic weekend schedule!

If you're a fan of country, bluegrass and roots music you'll have a bit more to choose from than the hip-hop fans, but not as much as alt/indie fans. This year's line-up includes festival circuit veterans like The Avett Brothers and Sam Bush who are well-known for their stellar live performances, but it also includes acts you really need to discover and see live. Trampled By Turtles is a personal favorite who will be playing this year. You'll also have an opportunity to see country music legend Kenny Rogers who is responsible for a myriad of timeless hits, and at age 73 your opportunity to see this legendary performer is growing short.

This playlist includes 14 country/Americana artists performing at Bonnaroo this year, which of these are on your "must see" list?

Check the official website for dates and times.
