Organizers announced a lineup Tuesday that features the Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z. Other top names in the genre-jumping lineup of 125 acts include Norah Jones, Weezer, Jack White’s newest band The Dead Weather, Nas with Damian Marley, and the Flaming Lips will perform Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Bonnaroo also features a formidable comedy lineup led by Chris Rock, Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black’s Tenacious D.

The headlining slot earned by Kings of Leon is a milestone for a Nashville-area band that’s had plenty of success in the last year. Kings of Leon, made up of brothers Caleb and Jared Followill and cousin Matthew Followill, are the first band to start on a tiny tent stage at the festival and then make it to a headlining slot.

Buoyed by their platinum-selling album “Only By The Night,” they’ll likely play in front of 60,000 to 70,000 fans.

The festival also has a strong country flavor this year, with the Grammy-winning Zac Brown Band, Kris Kristofferson, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert and Dave Rawlings Machine along with roots rockers like John Fogerty, The Avett Brothers, John Prine, The Black Keys.

There’s even a chance to see a few moonlighting actors. Banjo enthusiast Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers are slated to perform, as is Zooey Deschanel’s She & Him.

The festival will be held June 10-13 on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn., about 60 miles south of Nashville.
