MANCHESTER, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The lineup for the Bonnaroo 2007 has been announced. Bonnaroo, one of the largest and most anticipated Summer festivals in the US will return to Manchester Tennessee for its sixth installment on June 14-17.

Produced by Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment, the festival has been taking place on a 700 acre farm south of Nashville since 2002. It features a diverse selection of music around the clock along with a comedy club, cinema, silent disco, arcade, Internet cafés, restaurants, yoga classes and hundreds of high quality craft vendors.

This year, Bonnaroo will host the recently reunited rock legends the Police, along with performances by Tool, Widespread Panic and the return of the White Stripes after their lengthy break.
