The ninth annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee, USA, has been confirmed for June 10-13. Bonnaroo announced the news on November 19, also alerting fans to a holiday pre-sale that will offer reduced-priced tickets beginning November 27.

The four-day Bonnaroo Festival brings nearly 90,000 people each year to Great Stage Park, a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. It is the top-grossing festival in North America , and Rolling Stone Magazine named it as one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll.

A 2010 lineup is expected in late January or early February. 2009 Bonnaroo performers included Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Wilco, Elvis Costello, Nine Inch Nails, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, and Snoop Dogg. In addition to dozens of performances, the festival features a 100-acre "entertainment village" with a classic arcade, cinema, silent disco, comedy club, and music technology village. 

The pre-sale for 2010 tickets begins November 27 at 12:00pm EST and ends at 11:59 pm EST on Thursday, December 31. During that time, a batch of general-admission tickets will be sold at $209.50; once those tickets sell out, tickets will go for $224.50, then $234.50, and finally $249.50. VIP tickets are $1,349.50 per pair during the pre-sale while supplies last. Both general admission and VIP tickets can be bought using a five-installment payment plan.

A regular ticket on-sale date will accompany the lineup announcement in early 2010.
