What We Know
We already know that Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band are Saturday's headliner. Phish will be closing the festival out on Sunday night, but their first show is rumored to be a latenight show on the festival's main stage (What Stage), apparently going from 1am to 5am.

The Beastie Boys are rumored to be Friday's headliner, but it appears they'll be playing right before that Phish all nighter. All we've heard about the Nine Inch Nails set, is that they're getting a "special slot."

Ben Harper & the Relentless 7 have 11:45 pm listed on their MySpace, which leads us to believe they'll be a latenight set, probably on the Which Stage, considering the draw that Ben had back in 2007.

As for Friday, there is quite an abundance of electronica and dance music (most of that stuff goes on late at night, as well as reggae and world music.

It appears that Saturday will host a lot indie, country, folk and rock, while Sunday's shaping up to be the day for indie (as usual on the Which Stage), as well as probably a country and folk music tent. For those of you into hard rock and metal (a music genre somewhat new to Bonnaroo), Sunday will be your day.
