Fans party to Bonnaroo lineup announcement

It's one of the biggest musical festivals in the country and now we know just who will be a part of it.

Organizers announced the lineup for this year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival late Wednesday night.

Some of this year's stars include Kanye West, Elton John, Jack White, Lionel Ritchie and Frank Ocean. The event, which is located in Manchester, Tennessee, attracts about 80,000 people each year.

WBIR 10News was at the Disc Exchange in South Knoxville where they held a party for the announcement.

The store gave away free tickets to the festival and an Xbox.

Bonnaroo fans said there's something about the festival that just sets it apart.

"It's a great process and experience for everybody," said Knoxville resident Temperance Daniel. "I think everybody should experience it."

The revelation that Kanye West would be joining the festival did garner a few boos from the Disc Exchange crowd. The rapper had a controversial showing at Bonnaroo in 2008 when he showed up hours late. But, for the most part, fans were happy with most of the lineup's additions.

"When will we ever get a chance to Elton John in Tennessee," said Thomas Suimour. "And, it's first American festival so that's pretty awesome."

Tickets go on sale Saturday for the June festival.
