In this Internet era, the organizers of the ninth annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival decided to announce their acts one at a time on Tuesday.

By the end of the night, the lineup was clear -- as well as deep and diverse. Headliners for the June 10-13 fest in Manchester, Tenn., are Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Dave Matthews Band and Kings of Leon (in their only announced U.S. gig of 2010 so far).

The rest of the lineup is a mix of modern rock hot properties and favorites, alt-country stars and classic names.

The hot names include The xx, Phoenix, Avett Brothers, Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, She & Him,  Damian Marley & Nas, Black Keys, Dead Weather, Clutch, Manchestra Orchestra, Rise Against, the National, Kid Cudi, Dr. Dog, Wale and Chromeo with Daryl Hall.

Among the other classic names are the Flaming Lips (doing Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon"), Jeff Beck, John Fogerty, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Tori Amos, They Might Be Giants, Jimmy Cliff, Norah Jones, Weezer, Blues Traveler, Baaba Maal, the Melvins, Tenacious D and Gwar.

Country names include Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
