Pearl Jam will headline Bonnaroo in 2016


Pearl Jam will tour the US next year, as bassist Jeff Ament and band manager Kelly Curtis confirmed in a Twitter Q&A with fans last week.

Among those scheduled dates will be a headlining set at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

Consequence of Sound reports that according to two industry sources with knowledge of the band’s plans, Pearl Jam will return to Manchester, Tennessee for their first appearance at the festival since 2008. Next year’s edition is set for June 9th – 12th at Manchester’s Great Stage Park.

 Reached for comment, a representative for Bonnaroo could neither confirm nor deny their report.
Fans on Reddit also discovered that the band was reportedly confirmed as well. You can see the post here.
Obviously take this with a grain of salt, but the prospect of a headlining set is too good not too pass up this massive festival if proven true.
