Hey folks! Long time lurker, occasional poster. I know this is the "Artist Direct Confirmation Thread", but I've got some thoughts and a belly full of beer so let's DIIV in. I'm fortunate enough to be one of the 608 people Bonnaroo follows on Twitter by virtue of my Spinner coverage last year. As a voracious consumer of all pre-festival lineup news, I took a look at some of the bands Bonnaroo has followed since they followed me back in September. Those bands include;
Divine Fits Tauk Mac DeMarco Roadkill Ghost Choir Deap Valley Fort Lean DIIV The Last Bison Team Spirit Conveyor Sea Wolf Electric Guest Elle King High Highs Delta Spirit Karmin Tame Impala The Lumineers Lana Del Ray Neko Case Andrew WK
Now to be fair, some of these artist Twitter accounts are follow worthy in their own right outside of whether or not they're actually booked for the fest in 2013. I just thought it might serve as interesting fodder until the sweet baby Insider returns and guides us to lineup salvation. Can't wait to get back to the farm for year no. 5!!!
Andrew WK would be a hilarious and entertaining LN.
My favorite Swans album is White Light From The Mouth of Infinity, but I agree that The Seer is probably a good place to start. I still think they are a really weird booking for Bonnaroo. I expect their crowd to be pretty small.
Good call on finding bands that Bonnaroo has followed since a few months ago.
That was one way that we got a lineup leaked....or artists leaked hours early was when Bonnaroo started adding bands to their myspace friends or something like that. Eventually they started adding random weird ones to throw us off but they still revealed a few.
Could be something to it.
Roo seems to always make these little mistakes, which I love.
Anyone remember in 09 when all the bands posted on myspace before the lineup was announced? That was awesome.

I had messaged Murder by Death a while back to see if they'd be at Roo since they weren't touring near me this year...their response was "We wish"....sounds like they've never been asked which seems weird since I imagine they'd fit in well..not a huge band, but figured I'd post!
