After a lengthy hiatus, rapper Eminem is wasting no time getting up close and personal with his fans. We're only ten days into 2018 and he's already filled his schedule with a few high-profile music festival gigs. After news that he'll be joining Beyoncé as one of Coachella's headliners and N.E.R.D at NYC's Governors Ball Music Festival comes word that he's adding yet another festival to his busy calendar. It's been announced that the Detroit M.C. will be joining acts like Khalid, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals and Future at the 2018 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival when it takes over Manchester, Tennesee Thursday, June 7th to Sunday, June 10th.
While the marquee acts are sure to entice music fans, a deep dive into the remaining artists announced thus far reveals that there's literally something for everybody. Acts such as Nile Rodgers & Chic, T-Pain, Kali Uchis, Daniel Caesar, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Thundercat are also set to take to the stage during the multi-day event. The festival, now in its 16th year, will also feature all-night listening parties, yoga workshops, parades and comedy acts. Additionally, Bonnaroo will actually mark the second time Eminem and Khalid will share a bill during a music festival this year. The two will both be performing at the Governors Ball as well.
Tickets for this year's festival are set to go on sale Friday, January 12th at 10 a.m. EST with packages that include RV parking accommodations, an air-conditioned VIP campground, shower access and even a Gospel Brunch Party on the festival's final day. If a trip to Tennessee is in the cards for you this summer, then be sure to hit up the festival's website this Friday when they go on sale. You may want to hurry though; with only limited VIP passes available, we're sure the tickets will sell out fast.
