While the official Bonnaroo 2011 lineup release date has not been announced yet, more and more of the lineup is becoming clearer as bands self-confirm. In recent weeks, Gregg Allman, Black Star, Big Boi, and Bruce Hornsby have self-confirmed appearances at Bonnaroo 2011 and now the biggest artist yet has self-confirmed as a Youtube video has surfaced of Robert Plant and the Band of Joy in Washington D.C. last night signing off with a statement "We'll see you soon at Bonnaroo."

Robert Plant is, of course, best known as the lead vocalist for pioneering 70's hard rock act Led Zeppelin but in recent years, Plant has been exploring his Americana roots, first on his critically acclaimed album with Alison Krauss Raising Sand and most recently with his new group and album, both called Band of Joy. Robert Plant's Band of Joy is a who's who in Americana music guitarist, consisting of Buddy Miller, vocalist Patty Griffin, bassist Byron House, and multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott. The album has gotten very positive reviews and has dominated the Americana Music charts since coming out in September.."

Plant is no stranger to the Bonnaroo festival. He was a Sunday pre-headlining act at Bonnaroo 2008 with Alison Krauss, going on just before festival closers Widespread Panic. Plant's set was well-attended and it is assumed that Plant's position on the schedule will be similar to his Bonnaroo 2008 position, performing on the What Stage, Bonnaroo's biggest.
