Nashville music institution Grand Ole Opry will return to Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival next month after making its debut at the annual gathering last year, and this year’s newly announced lineup will be headed up by Old Crow Medicine Show and Steve Earle & The Dukes.
Also set for Opry at Bonnaroo—which will take place opening night of the festival, June 13, and will be broadcast live via opry.com and wsmonline.com—are Morgan Evans, Ashley Monroe, Wendy Moten, Ricky Skaggs, Riders in the Sky, Molly Tuttle and the Opry Square Dancers, plus announcer Bill Cody.
“The Opry’s inaugural trip to Bonnaroo last year was nothing short of amazing,” says Sally Williams, Opry Entertainment Group’s Senior Vice President of Programming and Artist Relations. “All of us fortunate enough to be part of that performance loved watching some of the world’s biggest music fans connect with the Opry, many for the first time. It definitely was one of the highlights of 2018, and when we look at the line-up of artists who have signed on for next month’s show, we have no doubt that performance is going to be just as memorable.”
Bonnaroo is set for Jun 13–16 at Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN, and will feature music from Phish, Childish Gambino, The Avett Brothers, Post Malone, ODESZA, The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile and many others. All festival information can be found here.
