Conan O'Brien had the pleasure of introducing the lineup announcement.

I went to Bonnaroo for the first time last summer, and it was so worth it. You'll come home over-exhausted, but it's quite an experience that certainly makes for an absolutely unforgettable summer. Don't miss out on Bonnaroo 2011! Tickets go on sale on February 19th at 12 p.m. EST.
