The festival, in association with Comedy Central, will welcome personalities including, among others, Aziz Ansari, Steven Wright, Marc Maron, Brian Posehn, Judah Friedlander, Reggie Watts, and Colin Hay, former Men At Work frontman.


Bonnaroo is now widely considered one of the biggest comedy events in the country. More details about Comedy Central's new partnership with Bonnaroo will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rolling Stone magazine called the 2011 event "epic," saying the weekend was full of "surprise and wonder," and Stephen Stills of Buffalo Springfield intoned, "If Woodstock were like this, we never would have left."
