I wasn't real happy at first, but the more I think about it, it's a solid lineup. I am pretty down about the usuals not being there, like Ben Harper and where is the classic 'doesn't fit at Roo but will be AWESOME to see' like Stevie Wonder/B.B. King? And I was really hoping for a Marley to be there!
I'm a city slicker from the Chicago suburbs, and I was hoping to go down to my first Roo if the lineup panned out nicely. I think I will wait and see for Lollaplooza's lineup to drop before I commit to going down. M&M and Arcade Fire look to be headed to Lolla also, so I was hoping for something unique with the headliners. Maybe I'll have to listen to some MMJ and/or Buffalo Springfield to see I dig them. I'm used to knowing most of the artists in a lineup, but I'm too familar with the top headliners. I'm a noob, I know, lol.
I've heard that the walks are really long to get to Centeroo. I'm conflicted about whether this roo would be better than lolla considering I can get almost to the front of any stage at Lolla without camping out.

Its official, Eminem and Lil Wayne have ruined Bonnaroo.
Too late. Dave Matthews ruined it in 2004 (and again in 2005). Then Radiohead and all the "emo" bands ruined it in 2006. Then Tool ruined it in 2007, with Metallica rounding out the metal destruction in 2008. Bruce Springsteen and all his ultra-mainstream Jersey devotees stomped on the remains in 2009, and then Kings of Leon and Jay-Z ruined it last year.
According to idiots around the interwebz, Bonnaroo has been getting ruined for about 8 years running now. Crazy.
at first I thought you were serious. I've been there since it was first "ruined" and all I can say roo cannot be "ruined" by one or two or twelve bands. because there are tons that kick ass. that's what makes it so awesome.
Man some people just love to biznatch. This line up is great something for everyone, plus it's only around half the bands. I'm stoked. It's for sure gonna be a sell out, get your tickets as soon as you can you.

Who's getting late nights? I'm talking about What and Which stages......Hopefully MMJ on What stage. SCI has to be late night on Which some night right? Primus late night on Which the other night? Or are Primus not big enough for that anymore?
Only counting 17 acts i really want to see. Del Mcoury and Preservation Hall will be awesome, but this lineup didn't really do it for me. If you like the lineup though I hope you guys have an awesome Roo this year. I will probably be at Waka or Summer Camp this summer.

speaking of MMJ...didn't they do latenight on Friday in 06 as well? after Tom Petty i believe. so there's no reason to think they wouldn't do another one. i guess i just can't picture them in a pre-headlining spot after two late night appearances already.
Gonna go ahead and agree with the majority of people on here. I like it, but it's not THAT amazing...to me. I hyped it up because of the 10 year anniversary. My fault. So far there's about 14 act that I'm gonna want to see. Sad about Massive Attack, but there's still additions. I too have to start doing my studying and look further into bands that I have heard of but just haven't given a chance yet.
