Other notable additions include Beyonce alt-R&B sister act Solange, cult-following-by-design favorites of yester-decade (or, for Tripping Daisy fans, yester-yester-decade) The Polyphonic Spree, California jam/funk bros Animal Liberation Orchestra (ALO), folk-rockers Delta Rae and Decemberists’ bluegrass side project Black Prairie, who, according to the band’s blog, will appear on comedian Ed Helms’ Bluegrass Situation Stage as part of a “SUPERJAM” featuring Aoife O’Donovan, Del McCoury and Sam Bush and The Punch Brothers’ Noam Pikelney.
Also, in a programing decision similar to last year’s Dan Halen inclusion (or 2008’s Lez Zeppelin booking), the festival has added a Zeppelin tribute act, Bustle in Your Hedgerow (I admit, clever name).
On the local tip — in addition to Road to Bonnaroo winners Alanna Royale, Ranch Ghost and Ri¢hie — William Tyler, Rayland Baxter, Jonny Fritz and Tennessee-via-Texas raising country star Kacey Musgraves are among the artists slated to appear on the festival’s club stages. Peruse the full list after the jump. And visit the festival’s official site for tickets and other deets.
