I've only been really extensively going to shows for the past four years or so so there aren't many bands that I've seen multiple times, but I thought it'd be interesting to see which bands you all have seen the most.
1. Mumford and Sons (5) 2. Alt-J, Twenty One Pilots (4) 3. The Avett Brothers, Flying Lotus, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Circa Survive (3)

Umphreys McGee 14 My morning jacket 7 Dopapod 3 The werks 3 Widespread panic 3 Moon taxi 3 Avett brothers 3 a bunch of bands twice that I wont name off. I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch too. I'll edit once my brain starts working.
Edit: Primus 3 String cheese incident 3 Govt Mule 4
Tool - 6 The Mars Volta - 6 (maybe 5, I'd have to go back and look at tour dates/ticket stubs. But if you start including other Omar and Cedric projects, probably closing in on 10.) Mastodon - 4 Animal Collective - 3 Puscifer - 3 Flying Lotus - 3 Thee Oh Sees - 3
Probably a few others 3 times, and tons twice. Can't really think of any others I've seen 4 or more times.

Pearl Jam - 24 (really want #25 to be on the farm) Umphreys - 9 Wilco - 9 Neil - 8 with #9 next month My Morning Jacket - 7 Kaskade - 6 Skrillex - 6 Bassnectar - 5 Black Keys - 5 DMB - 5 Pretty Lights - 5
Kings of Leon, I think 8 or 9, I feel like they opened for Pearl Jam a lot plus festivals. Also there are probably a few more in the 3-5 range that I've seen only at festivals and just can't think of.
Ekoostik Hookah- 15 (16 on Friday, they're a small jam band who has their own festival every memorial and labor day weekend, I went to a lot of Hookahvilles) Gov't Mule- 6 Lotus, Taking Back Sunday - both at least 5 Blink 182, Pretty Lights, Les Claypool/Primus- 4 Paul McCartney - 3 (soon to be 4!)
There are a bunch of smaller, jammier bands that I know I've seen a bunch without even trying just because they pop up on festival line ups, I just can't think of any of them. I feel like I've seen Gramatik like 5 times or so... but I'm not sure.
I'm sure there is some easy way to make my Excel sheet tell how many times I've seen everyone, but I don't know what it is. MMJ, Calexico, Sergio Mendoza y La Orkesta and Dr Dog are my top 4 I'm guessing
I probably saw Roy Acuff perform 50 or 60 times. When I was little, he use to perform a noon show at Opryland (a defunct amusement park in Nashville). I always made my mother take me to hear him do the choo-choo (train) sounds while performing the Walbash Cannonball song.
MMJ and Wilco are well into double digits and probably top the list of who I have seen most. I tend to go through phases with seeing bands. Like when Run The Jewels dropped, I saw them 4 times that year ( all within a few weeks of each other).
I've kinda put on the emergency brake with shows and festivals the past two years though. Maybe next year might be different.
