In terms of EPIC festival lineups, Bonnaroo has never really disappointed, and 2014 appears to be no different. Last night, during a live webcast hosted by Hannibal Burress and Taran Killam (of SNL fame) with performances by The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds, the producers of Bonnaroo revealed the lineup. We had the lucky opportunity to catch some of the premier at Le Poisson Rouge, which hosted the official NYC Bonnaroo Lineup reveal. Along with the free Ben & Jerry’s Bonnaroo-flavored ice cream, hundreds of fans packed into the crowded basement of LPR to watch a projection of the live webcast. With the announcement of artist after artist came scream after scream, and here’s why: Kanye West, Elton John and Jack White will be headlining the festival along with a deep list of other artists.
