Pearl Jam, Metallica, Kanye West, B.B.King, Willie Nelson, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss feat. T Bone Burnett, Jakob Dylan, Death Cab for Cutie, My Morning Jacket and Janeane Garofolo are among the initial 72 artists and comedians confirmed for the 2008 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The four-day, multi-stage camping festival, held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, TN, is scheduled for June 12-15, and the final lineup will total over 100 bands and over 20 comedians performing on 13 stages.

Produced by Superfly Productions and A. C. Entertainment, more of the lineup will be announced in the coming weeks as well as specific nights for the bands.

The largest and most revered music and camping event in the country, 
Bonnaroo has elevated the American rock festival to an unprecedented level. As the only round-the-clock major U.S. music festival, Bonnaroo 
packs an unparalleled amount of entertainment options into its four 
days, including a comedy theater, cinema festival, jazz club, silent disco, arcade, Internet cafés, 
restaurants, yoga classes and hundreds of high quality craft vendors.

Tickets go on sale exclusively through the festival website on Saturday, Feb.16 at noon EDT. At the time of purchase, fans will have the option of also buying a commemorative DVD of the festival that will be sent out about six months after the event. These DVDs will feature exclusive performances and backstage footage, and will include full-color packaging
and artwork and a 5.1 audio mix.
