Fresh off their shocking win for best album of the year at the Grammys, Arcade Fire will headline one of the biggest music festivals in America.

The Canadian indie rockers, along with fellow Grammy winners Eminem and the Black Keys will join classic rock band Buffalo Springfield as the leading performers at the 2011 Bonnaroo festival, reports the New York Daily News.

The reunification of the original Buffalo Springfield lineup, whose living members are Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay, is perhaps the biggest piece of news surrounding the event. The band broke up in 1968 but played their first public performance together in 40 years at Young's annual Bridge School Benefit last October.

Over 150 bands will play the four-day festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, from June 9-12. Widespread Panic, Lil Wayne, Mumford & Sons, The Strokes, Girl Talk and Florence + The Machine are among other acts scheduled to perform.
