Kanye West Will Headline 2014 Bonnaroo Festival w/ Frank Ocean, Elton John + More

Kanye West

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West and Bonnaroo have made peace and he will be apart of a 2014 Bonaroo Festival jam packed lineup. Kanye West will join Elton John, Frank Ocean, Lionel Richie, Jack White and more to headline this year’s Bonaroo Festival.

The festival will include performances from Skrillex, Wiz Khalifa, Lauryn Hill, Ice Cube, Janelle Monae and a myriad of other talents spanning rock, R&B, soul, Hip Hop and EDM. Noticably absent from the lineup is Outkast who announced they would be performing at 40 festival dates starting with their performance at this year’s Coachella Music Festival in April.

Another caveat of this year’s Bonnaroo Festival is that it marks Kanye West’s 1st performance at Bonnaroo since he voiced his displeasure at the Coachella organizers following his extremely delayed 2008 performance. Originally scheduled for 8:45 P.M., Kanye did not appear on stage until 4:45 a.m. for his last performance at Bonnaroo in 2008 and blamed his erratic performance on the organizers in a blog post:

WE WERE OBVIOUSLY DEALING WITH F*CKING IDIOTS WHO DIDN’T REALLY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REALLY PUT ON THIS SHOW PROPERLY. THEY TRIED 2 GIVE ME A TIME SLOT WHERE IT WAS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE … I HAVE A F*CKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB A*S, IT’S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS!

Over 150 performers are set to perform on ten stages at Bonnaroo, which is set to take place between June 12th and June 15th in Manchester, Tennessee. Check out the full list of performers at this year’s Bonnaroo Festival at the event’s official website.
