Festival days

Music fans will have their hands full this spring and summer.

Bonnaroo, the annual festival in Manchester, Tennessee, announced its lineup for 2009: Among the participants: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Phish, Elvis Costello, Al Green, the Decemberists, Merle Haggard, Of Montreal, Erykah Badu and the Beastie Boys – and that’s just for starters.

Bonnaroo is scheduled for June 11-14.

Across the country, this year’s Indio, California-based Coachella festival has an equally impressive lineup for its annual gathering: Paul McCartney, Morrissey, Amy Winehouse, the Cure, X, the Black Keys, Paul Weller, the Ting Tings and Lupe Fiasco … again, just a small portion of the many acts who will be on hand.

Coachella runs April17-19.

Planning to go to either? Too much for tickets and transport? What’s your dream show?

    What's great about Telluride is that no matter how much you hype it up to people, it will never reach a level of popularity that will threaten it. But I agree...as far as festivals are concerned, that is the gold standard.
