Gwar just announced that they will be playing Saturday, June 12th at Bonnaroo, the annual music festival held in Manchester, TN. Against the backdrop of this years headliners, they stick out like a broken arm. Sandwiched in between acts like Jazz mavericks, Medeski Martin & Wood and Jack White side project The Dead Weather, not to
mention “cultural visionaries” Dave Matthews and Jay-Z it’s hard to say what other acts the “typical” Gwar fan might stick around for. In an official statement from the band they promise to do what they do best, “”This is an unprecedented opportunity for us to bust up our personal best ‘kill count’ of 70,000 deaths, which we inflicted on the humans at Wacken last year. Supposedly there will be over 100,000 potential victims — and we intend to kill them all!”
The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival runs from June 11th-13th in Manchester, TN.
