Bonnaroo 2011 includes Eminem, Arcade Fire, Lil Wayne and Girl Talk

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival announced this year's line-up today, and it includes some major headliners, some who will play Baltimore in the near future. Among them: Lil Wayne, who will perform at 1st Mariner Arena March 20; Robyn, who just performed here, and will open for Katy Perry at Merriweather on June 15; and indie-pop Brooklynite Twin Shadow, who will perform at the Ottobar February 24.

In addition: Eminem, Girl Talk, the rejuvenated Wanda Jackson, The Decemberists, the Strokes, and new Grammy winners Arcade Fire will perform.

The festival, now in its tenth year, takes place on a 700-acre farm farm in Manchester, Tennessee from June 9 to the 12. Tickets, which start at $224.50 for general admission, are already on sale on the festival's website.
