The 16th anniversary Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival returns to Manchester, TN this year with Irish rockers U2 announcing earlier this week that they were set to headline the event with an anniversary performance of their classic "Joshua Tree" album. Now the festival, which takes place between June 8th and June 11th this Summer, have announced this year's line-up in its entirety.

Bonnaroo headlined by U2

The headlining spot for U2 will come as part of the rock group's summer tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of their highly regarded "Joshua Tree" album.

The album includes some of the bands most well-known songs, including "Where the Streets Have No Name," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and "With or Without You." The band are set to play the album in its entirety during their celebration tour, which begins in Vancouver on May 12th.

Bonnaroo: RHCP, Chance the Rapper and the Weeknd

California rockers Red Hot Chilli Peppers are also set to return to the Bonnaroo festival for the first time since 2012, as they continue to tour last year's album release "The Getaway". Chance the Rapper will be playing the festival for the fourth consecutive year, whilst there is a Bonnaroo debut for the Weeknd. Chance the Rapper has technically only been on the festival's billing twice since his debut performance in 2014, but made guest appearances in 2015 with Earth, Wind and Fire, and in 2016 he joined J.Cole, Bryson Tiller, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Miguel. The festival has been held at what is now Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee since it's inaugural year in 2002.
