I think the bands are going to be able to announce that they're playing Bonnaroo on myspace first, and then Bonnaroo will announce the full initial lineup at 10 AM. That's just my feeling. I really don't think they'll make us wait 10 hours with NO info
well all Bonnaroo.com says is to check their Myspace pages on the 9th for a special unveiling. to me, that doesn't rule out at least some information coming out at midnight. i know USA Today says 10am, but how many times in the past has some website said the lineup will be out on such and such day at such and such time and it's totally wrong?
it just seems like to put the iine up at noon and start selling tickets at noon will be mass pandemonium on the bonnaroo site which will make it soooooo slow, and probably crash it a million times. i wish they would give us the line up all at once at midnight just like they always do, and then start selling the tickets 12 hours later... it just seems like there would be way to much action on the site all at once and it would cause trouble. also this myspace malarky, come onnnnnn what are we 15?
Are they really not going to announce until 10am/noon?
Isn't that something they might say when they intend to release it at midnight? Make it feel like a treat to the "insiders" who know that they've released at midnight in the past? Release it at a time when their target demographic would most likely be able to see it?

i think something really cool would be if Bonnaroo told all the artists to come up with their own creative ways to announce it. I mean the article says it will be released through Myspace music and other means. like Avett Brothers announced that Scott (i think) will "levitate" on Feb 9th (pushed back a week from Feb 2nd). What if they said come up with your own ways....be it video, song, myspace, twitter, etc. that would be pretty sweet

i'm starting to think all those fake lineups that went around might end up pretty accurate. and i'm gonna be pissed because we've seen those for at least the past month. even if a good portion of those fake lineups end up there, i won't be too pleased. won't be pleased because bonnaroo delayed the release and all this waiting. i just want to go in expecting the worst possible lineup ever, that way my expectations will be greatly exceeded.
