A trio of wildly eclectic acts — Elton John, Kanye West and Jack White — has been unveiled as the headliners for the 2014 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.
The Bonnaroo gig is a first for music icon and piano-man John. However, it marks a return for rapper West, who last appeared in 2008.
The controversial artist sparked widespread outrage that year for showing up very late and making fans wait hours for a set that eventually got underway around 4:30 a.m. West blamed earlier bands that ran long as well as the set-up time required for his show.
This year's appearance will mark White's first return to Bonnaroo since his White Stripes days.
Other major acts set to rock the festival — which runs June 12-15 — include Lionel Richie, Vampire Weekend, Frank Ocean, Phoenix, Arctic Monkeys, Janelle Monae, The Head and The Heart, Ice Cube, The Avett Brothers, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Flaming Lips, Wiz Khalifa, Lauryn Hill and Damon Albarn.
Meanwhile, the festival's popular "superjam" sessions — which feature various artists assembled to improvise a performance — will include a bluegrass session hosted by Ed Helm, another featuring electronic artist Skrillex with friends and a "mystery" set.
Taking place on a massive farm in Manchester, Tenn. and typically drawing about 80,000 music fans, Bonnaroo is considered one of the world's top live music festivals, joining Coachella in California and Glastonbury in the U.K.
