Just 24 hours after Wiz Khalifa exclusively revealed he's playing Bonnaroo 2014 on Fuse's Trending 10, the Tennessee music festival unveiled its full, eclectic and incredible 2014 lineup.

Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Frank Ocean, The Avett Brothers, Jack White, Skrillex and Elton John are all hitting Bonnaroo this June 12-15. During BLAM!—Bonnaroo's livestream lineup announcement hosted by Hannibal Buress and SNL's Taran Killam—it was also revealed that Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Lionel Richie, The Flaming Lips, Kaskade, Damon Albarn, Neutral Milk Hotel, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Arctic Monkeys are rocking the annual fest. 

This year, dubstep poster boy Skrillex is heading up one of Bonnaroo's legendary Superjams, the late-night jam session where an assortment of surprise artists cover the songs that inspired them (and play their own hits, too). With Skrillex leading the charge, it looks like Bonnaroo 2014 could feature the first-ever EDM Superjam at Bonnaroo. Fellow electronic artists Cut Copy, Disclosure, Zedd and Kaskade will be at Bonnaroo, so we've got our fingers crossed. 

Oh, and did we mention that Danny Brown, Janelle Monae, James Blake and Pusha T are headed to Bonnaroo this year? So is N.W.A legend Ice Cube and metal masters Mastodon. It should be an extremely loud, unforgettable fest this year. Head here for the full lineup.

A full day before the Bonnaroo lineup announcement, Wiz Khalifa exclusively revealed he was playing Bonnaroo 2014 when he and Hannibal Buress swung by Fuse's Trending 10. "That's right, I'm gonna be at Bonnaroo this year," Wiz said in the interview below. "It's been since 2011, and a lot of things have changed since then, but we still repping Taylor Gang. I advise all of you guys to get out there, because we're going to go crazy. It's gonna turn up and be official—Wiz Khalifa and Bonnaroo. Let's go."

Wiz also spoke with Fuse News about his complete-but-unreleased Adele collaboration—which he describes as a "hippie-ish" joint—and talked about whether it'll be on his upcoming album Blacc Hollywood. Check that out here.

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.
