Bonnaroo 2019: Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone to Headline

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Phish, Childish Gambino and Post Malone will headline the 2019 edition of Bonnaroo, the festival announced on Tuesday morning.

Cardi B, The Lumineers, Solange, Kacey Musgraves, The National, Maya Rudolph’s Prince cover band Princess, and the Andy Samberg-led comedy troupe The Lonely Island also feature prominently on the festival’s poster.

Phish and Gambino will perform on Friday evening, while Malone will headline Saturday night. Phish will also headline Sunday evening, performing two sets. The Vermont-based band also headlined in 2009 and 2012. The festival’s first night will feature a set from Nashville’s Grand Old Opry that includes special guests, though it is unclear who those guests might be.

Though the festival has veered mostly from its jam-band roots in recent years, it has retained its popular super jam, which is an artist-curated set that melds genres and musicians who rock out to a theme. This year’s curator is DJ/producer GRiZ, and the set will take place on Friday. Last year’s SuperJam paid tribute to the music of Tom Petty.

First taking place in 2002, Bonnaroo will once again take place at Great Stage Park, the 700-acre farm and event space 60 miles southeast of Nashville in Manchester, Tennessee. Bonnaroo will take place from June 13 through June 16. The festival was notably where the Beastie Boys’ final concert took place in 2009, and where R&B superstar D’Angelo made his return the stage in 2012 with a surprise appearance during Questlove’s SuperJam.

Freeform Cancels Lonely Island-Produced Comedy ‘Alone Together’ After 2 Seasons

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Freeform has canceled its Lonely Island-produced comedy series, “Along Together” after two seasons.

“Alone Together” starred stand-up comedians Esther Povitsky (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) and Benji Aflalo (“Not Safe with Nikki Glaser”) as two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds trying to make their way in the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles. These two only find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship.

Chris D’Elia, Ginger Gonzaga, Edgar Blackmon and Nikki Glaser also starred. Povitsky and Aflalo wrote and executive produced the series alongside The Lonely Island trio of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, and Paul Mather and Becky Sloviter.

The show, a vehicle for the comic duo Esther Povitsky and Benji Alfalo, relates the superficial, tawdry adventures of […]
