'Weird Al' Yankovic to Unveil Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup… Soon?

The master parodist will host live webcast to announce lineup. Only question is, when?

Now that Coachella's 2013 lineup has been announced, it's time to start speculating on that other major summer music festival, Bonnaroo. Thankfully, the answer is coming soon, and when it does arrive, you can bet on it being hilarious: "Weird Al" Yankovic has been recruited by organizers to reveal this year's Bonnaroo lineup live during a webcast on the Bonnaroo365 YouTube channel. It'll be the first time Bonnaroo ever announced their performers live, though they have pulled similar stunts in the past. The fest has also been posting inscrutable hints about their lineup — call them 'Roos Clues, if you will — like "Two Fathers Sit Still" and "Dancing on the Galway," but so far these vague hints haven't been solved. No word yet on when exactly the lineup announcement goes down. (Last year it dropped on Valentine's Day.)

Hopefully this means "Weird Al" is either performing at the fest's comedy tent or emceeing Bonnaroo like Conan O'Brien did in 2010.
