Bonnaroo Unveils 2023 Headliners With Foo Fighters, Zeds Dead, Liquid Stranger, Kendrick Lamar & ODESZA

Bonnaroo is set to return to Manchester, Tennessee, from June 15-18 with featured headliners Zeds Dead, Liquid Stranger, Kendrick Lamar, ODESZA and Foo Fighters.

The festival will feature further performances from Mersiv, Suki Waterhouse, GRiZ, Portugal. The Man, Subtronics, Peekaboo, Lil Nas X, My Morning Jacket, Louis The Child, Sofi Tukker, Big Wild, Paramore, Marcus Mumford, Pixies, Girl In Red, Franz Ferdinand, Wax Motif, Paris Jackson and more.

Last year featured Bonnaroo’s return for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, with their 2021 event cancelled last-minute due to flooding in the area. The festival space, once a jam band right of passage that has expanded to become a massive, multi-genre event over its two decades of operation, has cemented itself as one of the foremost festivals in the United States.

Earlier this month, Foo Fighters announced the band would return and be continuing on following last year’s tragic loss of drummer Taylor Hawkins. Bonnaroo’s lineup shows the band’s return is underway.

Both Kendrick Lamar and ODESZA released Grammy-nominated albums last year, with Lamar’s Mr. Morales & The Big Steppers nominated for Album Of The Year and Best Rap Album in the 2023 Grammy Awards and ODESZA’s The Last Goodbye nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album.

Zeds Dead recently teamed up with fellow Bonnaroo performer GRiZ for their highly-anticipated single “Ecstacy Of The Soul,” a former ID fans had been waiting more than a year for release. Liquid Stranger, meanwhile, teamed up with J.Lauryn in December for the single “Smoke N Hope” released via his SSKWAN record label.

Last year featured performances from Stevie Nicks, J. Cole, Machine Gun Kelly, The Chicks, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Tool, Illenium and more.

Early access on sale starts Jan. 12 at 10 a.m. CT, with signups now available. Hulu will serve as the official streaming platform for the event.
