The 2009 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival was held June 11–14, 2009 at a 700-acre (2.8 km2) farm in Manchester, Tennessee,  United States.[1] There were roughly 75,000 people in attendance.[2] The onset of Bonnaroo 2009 was punctuated by monstrous thunderstorms. Thursday night included heavy rain, lightning, strong winds and hail. A lighter storm passed over the farm on Friday. The resulting mud became a hardship for some and a plaything for others.

Lineup[edit]

The initial lineup was released on the festival's website at midnight on February 3, 2009.[3] Phish performed a traditional 2-set headlining spot on Sunday night as well as a late night set on Friday night. Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band performed Saturday.

Down and The Ting Tings appeared on the initial lineup but were later removed.[citation needed]

The previously annual Superjam did not take place, and for the first time in Bonnaroo's eight year history, not a single The Grateful Dead member performed at the festival.
