    Rap superstars Eminem and rock band Arcade Fire, newly crowned with the Grammy for Best Album of the Year, will headline Bonnaroo 2011, while legacy act Buffalo Springfield will be a show stopper with the likes of Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Rick Rosas and Joe Vitale.

    The diversity of Bonnaroo’s line up, released today (Feb. 15), is only exceeded by its length and star quality. More than 90 bands are signed up to appear at the festival, now in its 10th year.

    Bonnaroo, which runs from June 9 through June 12 in Manchester, Tenn., is also reviving a previous tradition, the on-stage superjam.

    Canadian indie rockers Arcade Fire, fresh off their album of the year win for “The Suburbs,” are at the top of the bill. They aren’t the only act with a Grammy connection.

    The Grammy-anointed blues rockers the Black Keys will play along with Mumford & Sons, which shared the Grammys stage with Bob Dylan, according to the New York Times.

    Tickets for Bonnaroo go on sale Feb. 19 at noon on the festival’s web site. Check it out at Bonnaroo.
