Superfly Presents and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce that the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has confirmed another extraordinary comedy lineup for the 10th year festivities. A festival staple and a longstanding tradition that began in 2004, Bonnaroo will once again feature a dynamic and eclectic host of national headlining comics in its ever-popular seated, air-conditioned comedy venue. The festival will welcome some of the most hilarious personalities working today, including, among others, Lewis Black, the 420 Comedy Blaze tour hosted by Cheech Marin and featuring Ralphie May, the stars of Workaholics and more, The League featuring Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Jon Lajoie and Stephen Rannazzisi, Henry Rollins, Eugene Mirman, Tim Minchin and revered filmmaker John Waters. Now considered an essential play for any comic, Bonnaroo is widely considered synonymous with the best in comedy as well as the best in music.

Festival organizers are also excited to announce that they have added several artists to the 2011 event, further diversifying a fantastically eclectic and stellar lineup for its 10th year celebration. Updates include Bonnaroo veterans Galactic and G. Love & Special Sauce as well as the legendary reggae group Black Uhuru, one of punk rock’s finest, NOFX, and the critically acclaimed Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub among others.

The 2011 event marks the 10th year for the iconic Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, which began in 2002 as a remarkable idea to serve a passionate yet underappreciated and overlooked fanbase, and ended up becoming the premier multi-day concert destination of the summer whose dynamic and eclectic programming paved the way for the age of the great American music festival. Last year, Bonnaroo continued its long-history of making a strong impact on the American music industry. Rolling Stone hailed, “In its ninth year, Bonnaroo has done an impressive job of hanging on to its reputation as one of the most eclectic music and arts festivals,” while the Wall Street Journal called it “one of rock’s best festivals,” and MTV claimed, “If you’re in the State and angling for a road trip – there’s no better destination.”
