Part of me feels like this is backlash for the way it's been delivered. I wonder if we had just gotten the lineup if everyone woulda been so outraged. I'm still dreaming of Neil tonight. I'll dream about it until the day I cram my shiz into the Geo and drive down. And if the mans not there, well, life goes on.

i can tell you right now my answer is no, i wouldn't have been so outraged. not at all.
KOL SHOULD NOT BE A FLIPPING HEADLINER Or DMB! DMB tours ALL THE TIME...its not like we woudn' have the chance to see him 20+ times in our lifetime. An KOL has the worst stage performance...I left in the middle of their performance at ACL.
There is to much overlap between Bonnaroo and ACL....I wish bonnaroo hadmore of the Coachella's sloppy seconds (pretty lights, rusko, muse, gorillaz).
I think the bands are OKAY...I was hoping for a little more umph...Roger Waters, Neil Young, Red Hot Chili Peppers, STS9, Rolling Stones, etc. It loos like we got sloppy seconds from both ACL and Coachella this year...and not all good ones. I wish I had not bought a presale ticket...not only did I waste my money, but almost 10 hours of my time today. Not looking forward to seeing KOL or DMB...again...ugh.
This happens every year!!! EVERY YEAR!!! I think the worst year was when we were aiming for Led Zepp. Except we got Lez Zepp...I was let down...I said what the hell...then i went out and started listening to all the undercards and had a friggen blast! The list got stronger and I had a blast either way.
Bonnaroo is an experience for me, the music is always good and the party even better. You may be mad now, but come June 10th.....Party ON!!!
And again I was originally against the way they were going to do it this year but it turned out to be exciting.. It felt like election night with every new state coming in. My phone was blowing up all day.
I just don't get you people who are so hung up on headliners.. THAT's lame.

yeah idk. I also think maybe we did this to ourselves? Getting so insanely bent on rumors and shiz, and freaking out when it doesn't magically come true. Regardless, I'm pumped for the hip hop and some of the smaller stuff. JBT will be there, and a show from those guys has left me smiling for weeks later. No lie. All is well.
Maybe it is just a weak year for Festival lineups. Maybe they couldnt get the bands this year because all the bands we speak of are simply unavailable for whatever reason. Keep in mind, that is one of the reasons Rothbury cited for its cancellation!

the main thing that's weirding me out is kings of leon apparently as a headliner. i just can't believe that they would get a primetime spot playing all by themselves. i have to think that there's at least one more big name up superfly's sleeves.
but even if nothing huge happens with the headliners, i won't be too pissed. there's already one that i'm really hyped about (jay-z), and i'm feeling good about the undercard. the headliners didn't interest me at all in 2008, and i still had a great time.
