Bonnaroo organizers have announced the dates for the 2010 version of the ever-popular outdoor music and arts festival. The four-day event will run June 10-13 at the 700-acre, Manchester, Tenn. farm where it has been held for eight years.

Ticket pre-sales for the festival will be available Nov. 27 through Dec. 31.

Bonnaroo will offer general admission tickets for five payments of $50 plus applicable fees through the holiday pre-sale.

In addition, with each ticket purchase the festival will send a Bonnaroo holiday greeting card featuring a unique, iconic photo from Bonnaroo's colorful past. To get a card, purchasers must place their order by Dec. 16. A limited edition 2010 Bonnaroo Calendar will also be available during this period.

Bonnaroo's ninth promises to build on the achievements of the previous eight including music programming to the non-music attractions, activities and art.

The Wall Street Journal called it "one of rock's best festivals," and said that the 2009 lineup "fairly bursts with some of the most gifted acts in rock and pop."

The Bonnaroo 2010 line up will be announced in late January/early February.
