Bands Added to Bonnaroo

Although Bonnaroo has not released any official news of artist additions, several artists have confirmed that they'd be playing the festival, most of them via MySpace.

It would appear that most of these additions are Cafe Acts - the two cafe's at Bonnaroo are the Blue Room Cafe, located in the field of the What Stage, and the Troo Music Lounge, located between Which Stage and This Tent. Cafe Acts can sometimes be local Tennessee bands, but for the most part, these bands are smaller (in popularity), and because of the size of the tents, these bands also play to the smallest crowds at Bonnaroo. But that's not to say that they're not good or worth checking out. When at Bonnaroo, I never saw a band in the Blue Room Cafe. But I've seen a few in the Troo Music Lounge including Jonah Smith, The Whigs, John Paul White and Langhorne Slim.

Onto the Addition Leaks...

Like I said, most of these will probably be Cafe Acts, but there are a few recognizable names. The bigger names include Peter, Bjorn & John, Amadou & Mariam, American Princes, Murs, and the Lee Boys.

Some of the "less-recognizable" names include Jessie Baylin, Dan Dyer, ccome, Charlie Allen, Keisha Jackson, Jacob Guinnup, Sift, The Voyage North, The Pied Piper, Dwayne Kerr, DJ 609, Orpheo McCord, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zero's, Stacy Osorio, the Saturday Night Revolution with Dean Morrison, Sarah Siskind and the 603 Kings.
