The eclectic trio of Elton John, Kanye West and Jack White will headline this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.

Organisers announced the line-up for the June 12-15 festival on Wednesday night.

Sir Elton will be attending his first Bonnaroo, while Kanye will be making his first return after one of the most memorable appearances in 2008.

That year he made fans wait nearly two hours for his early morning set, which did not start until 4.30am.

Other performers scheduled to appear include Frank Ocean, Lionel Richie, Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers, Lauryn Hill and Skrillex, who will host one of Bonnaroo's SuperJams.

Tickets go on sale at noon February 22 on the festival's website.
