In January, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival announced its lineup of more than 100 artists as part of this year’s showcase on June 7–10, including country-centric performers Sturgill Simpson, Midland, Brothers Osborne, Ole Crow Medicine Show, Tyler Childers and more.
Now the Opry is upping the country ante.
For the first time in the festival’s history, the Grand Ole Opry will stage a show from Bonnaroo on Sunday, June 10, featuring Opry members Bobby Bare, Del McCoury Band, Old Crow Medicine Show and Riders in the Sky, as well as Brothers Osborne, LANCO, Nikki Lane and Lucie Silvas.
Grand Ole Opry at Bonnaroo will be broadcast online and over the airwaves with Bill Cody serving as the show announcer.
The 2018 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will take place June 7–10 at Great Stage Park, the 700-acre farm and event space located just 60 miles south of Nashville in Manchester, Tenn. And, if you were wondering, the dates are once again the exact same as this year’s CMA Music Fest (June 7–10) in Nashville.
