Bonnaroo festival deny Led Zeppelin rumours

Organisers say Metallica claims are wide of the mark too

Led Zeppelinwill not headline the Bonnaroo Festival 2008, despite internet reports.

Rumours that Metallica were also set to play have been denied too.

In a statement to Billboard, organisers Superfly Presents and AC Entertainment explained: “The rumours that are out there about the Bonnaroo 2008 headliners are inaccurate.

“We’re very excited about the line-up that we’re putting together for this year’s festival. We’ll be announcing the confirmed line-up toward the end of January/beginning of February.”

The source of the Led Zeppelin/Metallica rumor was an anonymous email included last week in industry commentator Bob Lefsetz‘s newsletter.
