I've thoroughly enjoyed all three Roo's I have been to, but 2012 was easily the best. The weather, our kick-ass neighbors, and the mindbending Radiohead, and superjammin Chili Pepper's sets made this the best Roo, for me. One that I will never forget.
That's too bad. With Dawes confirmed and Diamond Rugs expected to be there (along with the Black Lips)... I am going to guess that Delta Spirit is out and Dead Confederate is in... Deer Tick also a possibility.

damn i just looked at the denied list for the first time in a couple weeks. makes me sad i'd say at least a 1/4 of the denied bands end up at roo, there's just too many great undercard acts on that list for me to believe that all of them won't be there.
how did portugal the man get ruled out? they posted a couple weeks ago about how they went bowling with people associated with bonnaroo and someone else while in NY... i have a good feeling they could be coming back but it's just a hunch
