Something I just noticed: I'm pretty sure that all the acts I'm looking forward to (Elton John excepted) established prominence between the 90s and today which is remarkable since my all-time favorite artists tend to come from the 60's & 70's and yet I'm still incredibly excited for the lineup! (9/10)

8 and I just don't think its possible to be any higher than that so maybe that's the same as 10. With John Butler trio down there I should have said 9....i didn't even see them the first time I looked and freaked when I was reading back through.

I'll have to let it sit in more before ranking it. It's real solid with hardly anything I wouldn't see, but I'm not blown away by anything. That's probably just because I already knew a lot of who would be on it before the release.
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

I said 7.
I feel like they were swinging for the fences on a big third headliner. Probably with Jack White being 4, Lionel at 5.
They missed. Not bashing the lineup, lots of folks I'd love to see. I'm probably most excited about Cake personally. Hoping they come on right after a certain headliner. Otherwise I'll be camped out to be on the front row of that one.
Very few other bands I want to be close for. So a relaxing bonnaroo.

I agree on the third headliner Memphis! I too gave it a 7. I like the lineup but as far as the WOW factor goes, nothing (outside of Cake & Ice Cube) really hit me. Good lineup that will hopefully get better with some additions. Not saying it is bad at all, just not what I was expecting.

I was torn between an 8 and a 9, but went with an 8. I'm dropping it a notch because of the potential sh^itstorm Kanye could create amongst some moronic fans, potentially ruining the performance and from the potential Elton plays his Princess Di song.
I gave it a 8. Extremely solid lineup- soooooooo many boners. I'm on the I don't care about Kanye or Jack White solo train, but I rarely see a headliner combination at a big festival that really gets me going. My first thought was what a few others like krstphr said- I don't think a 10 is achievable and 9 is almost too good to be true. And then I'd be crying because the conflicts would be so horrendous. I think it's amazing. BONNNAROOOOOOOOO!
Not going so I don't know if my vote matters, but I guess I give it about an 8? I completely forgot about BLAM last night until I saw all the Facebook posts at about 11pm.
Initially, I was pretty underwhelmed. After a night's sleep, I think there are numerous bands I'd like to see. I think what brings it down for me is that there aren't any bands that I'd HAVE to see, i.e. none of my top 10-15 favorite bands.
I am pretty sure i game last years an 8, and this year is better (for me) so i gave it a 9. Actually no fuck it, i'll give it a 10, based on my musical tastes and how many acts i am excited to see, including all the headliners (for the first time).
