Bonnaroo suspends ticket sales

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Bonnaroo has halted sales for the four-day music festival during the first day of ticket sales because of overwhelming demand and technical problems.

Tickets for the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival were scheduled to go on sale on Saturday, but the event's organizers said on its website that they were suspending the ticket sales.

The statement said they were trying to fix the problem and would announce later when tickets would be available for the festival held annually in June in Manchester, about 65 miles southeast of Nashville.

This year's lineup includes the reunited Beach Boys, along with Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish and Bon Iver.
