The lineup for Bonnaroo 2014 is set, and there's so much star power toward the top of the ticket, media outlets are having a hard time deciding which headliner to put first in their headlines.

Elton John first? Kanye West first? Elton. Kanye. Wait, did MTV forget Sir Elton?! (Via USA Today, E!, Los Angeles Times, Spin)

Headlines aside, Elton John, Kanye West and Jack White make up the music festival's top three. More than 125 artists fill out the lineup. (Via Bonnaroo)

And with names such as Vampire Weekend, Skrillex and Frank Ocean, there's sure to be a mix of sounds filling Manchester, Tenn., June 12-15. (Via Bonnaroo)

But as the Los Angeles Times points out, this lineup stays true to Bonnaroo's past: "Unlike Southern California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Bonnaroo has relied slightly heavier on a selection of jam bands, roots artists and bluegrass acts."

For example, The Avett Brothers will no doubt provide some of that classic Bonnaroo sound this summer. (Via CNN)

And hey, R&B artist Lionel Richie did release a country album in 2012. Just saying. (Via YouTube / UMG Nashville)

But wait — Elton, Kanye, Jack. Someone is missing.

Where is OutKast? The reunited rap duo is performing at just about every other festival that's been announced, including Coachella. Maybe they were busy? (Via LaFace / OutKast)

Or maybe Yeezus is enough personality to cover for both of them. That said, it might be an awkward return for 'Ye. (Via Roc-A-Fella / Kanye West)

Last time he performed at Bonnaroo, he was forcefully booed. E! writes he was originally scheduled to go on at 2:45 a.m. "When 4:15 a.m. rolled around and still no West, the antsy crowd began hurling glow sticks at the stage and screaming anti-West sentiments."

He did eventually show up two hours late. That could be why Bonnaroo put Elton first on its poster.

But it's more likely he tops the list because he's the freakin Rocket Man. Sorry, Yeezy. (Via VEVO / Elton John)

No matter who you need to see, tickets go on sale Saturday at noon Eastern time on Bonnaroo.com. Prices start at $250 for the four-day festival. Camping is included. Your tent, however, is not.
