LiveRate Uncovers the Best Headliner, the Best Bets, and Can’t Miss Newcomers to See at Bonnaroo 2023


Navigating a music festival lineup poster and then later planning with the festival set times schedule are both difficult tasks when you don’t know many of the live performers on the bill. At LiveRate, we do the hard work for you by gathering how music critics rate how artists perform live and with this information, we help you in making your Bonnaroo 2023 festival schedule.


While Coachella 2023 typically pushes the envelope in terms of their festival lineup this year opting for more global and less rap acts, Bonnaroo 2023 seems to have taking a more traditional route with their 2023 lineup. Bonnaroo Music Festival 2023 is a 4-day music festival taking place on June 15 - 18, 2023 in Manchester, TN, United States. Our Bonnaroo 2023 festival page has 60 LiveRated artists listed with 15 Real Live Certified artists. Here is who to see.


Best Headliner At Bonnaroo 2023


The 2023 edition of the festival has booked a diverse headliner lineup of Foo Fighters, Kendrick Lamar, and Odesza.


Kendrick Lamar is Real Live Certified at 96% with 227 critic reviews, one of the highest rated artists on LiveRate. His theatrical shows in 2022 were very well received across the board. Foo Fighters are also Real Live Certified at 86% with 372 critic reviews. And Odesza has a Live Rating of 61% with 57 critic reviews. With one rap, rock, and electronic act, Bonnaroo chose a headliner lineup that has something for almost every festival goer.

The best bets to see at the 2023 edition of the music festival are artists that have high Live Ratings and are Real Live Certified. We highlight a handful of Real Live Certified acts that are not to be missed at Bonnaroo 2023.
