There are over 125 acts playing at Bonnaroo this year. Trying to
navigate the overload? Billboard picked ten sets to take you from
Friday through Sunday night and give you the most band for your buck
without passing out from trying to race from one stage to the next.
Just start with number one as we count you through the weekend, and
preview the tunes you might hear along the way.
What could be a better face for the 140-character generation than Gregg Gillis, who, as the one-man sonic parts-and-labor department Girl Talk, relentlessly shoves several external drives' worth of beats, samples, hooks and sound FX into a banging sonic gumbo, and then puts the whole sweat-soaked mess online and tells listeners to name their price for it. Gillis' shows, meanwhile, have taken on a reputation of their own as shirtless, fierce late-night blowouts that generally end in the senseless destruction of a multitude of electronics. Do not miss. Also, hydrate. -Jeff Vrabel
