Complete list of bands playing Bonnaroo Music Festival 2012. The 2012 Bonnaroo artists roster includes both bands and solo artists, and is the full lineup of which bands played Bonnaroo 2012 in Manchester, Tennessee.

Headliners of this year's festival include British rock legends Radiohead, who are also playing the 2012 Coachella Music and Arts Festival, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, a reunited Beach Boys and, coming off his win for Best New Artist at the 2012 Grammys, Bon Iver. The rest of the line-up showcases a lot of diversity, including hip-hop and R&B acts, folk singers and alt-country performers, electronic artists and indie/experimental bands. Several 'classic' bands and artists will be reuniting for the show or making rare concert appearances, including Alice Cooper, Bad Brains and Black Star. Comedian Aziz Ansari, a Bonnaroo regular, has also been added to the main show line-up.
