It's that time again - yet another massive festival announcement. Bonnaroo Festival have announced their rather impressive 2017 lineup - with U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Weeknd topping the bill. Check out the full lineup poster below.

Other acts billed to take to the stage include Chance The Rapper, The xx, Lorde, Royal Blood, Glass Animals, Cold War Kids and many more. 

Before heading out on a retrospective tour in celebration of The Joshua Tree's 30th anniversary, U2 will perform at the Tennessee event, marking their first ever U.S festival appearance.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to the festival for the first time since their 2012 appearance, while The Weeknd will make his first trip to the festival in support of his massive Starboy record.

Lorde's name being featured hints further towards new material coming this Spring, with the New Zealand popstar previously being announced for Coachella, after a three-year break from live shows. 

Our very own rock duo Royal Blood also look set to make a huge comeback, with Bonnaroo being their second festival announcement. The band also announced they will play at The Governors Ball Festival in New York following a teaser for new music last month. 

Flight to Tennessee anyone?

Bonnaroo 2017 will take place June 8 - 11.
