Paul McCartney along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers have been announced as headliners for this year’s Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester Tennessee. Also set to headline are British folk-rockers Mumford and Sons and Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk.

Kelly, Wu-Tang Clan, “Weird Al” Yankovic and The Sheepdogs. The festival boasts over 120 different acts and a complete list of performers can be found at Bonnaroo.com.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers however, will make their second appearance at the famous festival, returning to the Bonnaroo stage for the first time since their celebrated 2006 performance.
