So...what does everyone think? I'm sold. I'm guessing PJ and Metallica headline with either Kanye, Jack, or Phil on Sunday. It's not really Kanye's crowd, but I have a hard seeing him sign without headlining.

    Thanks for the useless OP, insanely long post (did you really need the space between each performer) and stupid title.

    That's a pretty good line-up. I guess I'd have to wait and see if Led Zeppelin is doing a more extensive tour; I don't have enough vacation time to head Tennessee unless I'm catching red-eyes.

    So, Satan. is an idiot, but you could stand to give the rest of us some more information and maybe tidy that up a bit. Where is this festival at, is there a website, who do I have to kill to get tickets?

    Of the above, I'd be interested in seeing:
    -Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings
    -B. B. King
    -Lez Zeppelin
    -Metallica
    -My Morning Jacket
    -Ozomatli
    -Pearl Jam
    -Robert Plant & Alison Krauss
    -The Raconteurs
    -Rilo Kiley
    -Sigur Ros
    -Two Gallants
    -Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet featuring Bela Fleck
    -and a few of the comedians

    That said, it is in Tennessee and I am not. So a happy day to the folks with enough income to truck out there and see who they want to.

    Edit: Although I am looking forward to which artists will be allowing their recordings on livebonnaroo.com.

    Fuck, thought that said Led Zeppelin. Well, still pretty good line-up, though now it's looking less like it's enough for me to go to Tennessee.

    Yes, but I've never seen a good cover act before. And I'm curious to see if they could get Robert Plant to perform with them for a song or two.

    Gov't Mule was able to get John Paul Jones to play a couple of songs with them last year. That was cool. I think that was Bonnaroo, anyhow.

    Ok, got that tidied up after the copy and paste. I went last year and had a ridiculous amount of fun, and easily plan on returning this year (tax return well spent). The acts I'm really looking forward to are...

    Against Me!
    Battles
    Black Kids
    Death Cab for Cutie
    Broken Social Scene
    Drive-by Truckers
    The Fiery Furnaces
    Gogol Bordello
    Iron & Wine
    B.B. King
    Talib Kweli
    Aimee Mann
    Mastodon
    Metallica
    My Morning Jacket
    Willie Nelson
    Pearl Jam
    Rilo Kiley
    Sigur Ros
    The Sword
    Tegan & Sara
    Vampire Weekend
    Kanye West

    ...so I obviously am going to be making some tough decisions as to which stages I will be at. I just really hope they give Sigur Ros a late show.

    Well, one could have 1/4th of the original Zeppelin band there with Robert Plant performing there already.

  • devCharlesdevCharles Registered User regular
    edited February 2008
    I kind of feel bad for them. Against Me! after this last album has hit a serious decline in their performances. The last show I saw them at was seriously a step down from their past performances.

    Minus the Bear though, that's pretty awesome. David Cross too. I still have not seen Willie Nelson. This may be worth it. I tend to either go to Bonnaroo or Coachella every year.

    Seeing how much Coachella is going to suck this year, I might save up for a summer trip to Tennessee.

    I missed out on Radiohead last time. :|

    Yeah, Radiohead is such a pain in the ass to get to go see these days. They sell out so quick, and apparently Thom Yorke has a fear of flying. It's just really irritating that they can get away with only playing like 8 shows in the US with San Francisco, LA, Seattle, Houston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Boston always getting played at, leaving me a thousand miles from the nearest one...

    I went last year, and this festival is amazing. You'll never run out of things to do.

    This lineup seems OK, but I've only heard of 1/5th of the performers. Go-go Youtube, I guess.

    God, I wish that I could go to this. The closest thing we have to this is Oxygen, which sells out quickly and generally only has one or two big names playing...

    Honestly, the line up doesn't strike me as anything spectacular. They're really sort of reaching though with Kanye, Jack Johnson, Pearl Jam, and Metallica as headliners. Funnily enough wide spread panic isnt up there. Though they do have the remants of the band, the grateful dead, the allman brother band and willie nelson, so that should promise to draw the hippies. It's a great festival but its like a thousand degrees the entire day, to the point where its unpleasent to live, the water tastes like eggs because of sulfur deposits in the ground, and everything is hella expensive. though at night its fucking amazing.

  • TL DRTL DR Registered User regular
    edited February 2008
    Well the water does taste like ass and if you want to buy a gallon it's going to run you $7, but if you come ready you'll have a good time.

    Now as for finding a festival that's more hippies, less commercial... Someone let me know.

    My biggest advice for anyone going would be:

    - Pace yourself. There is a ton to do and see, inside Centeroo and out. Don't beat yourself up over overlapping shows or missing anyone in particular.

    - Bring plenty of food, water, and beer. They let you bring it, take advantage. It really isn't THAT expensive otherwise though.

    - Bring gear for rain. Also bring a good flashlight, plenty of sunscreen, sunglasses, a handkerchief (for dust), and at least one warm set of clothes (nighttime temperatures can drop fairly low).

    tickets on sale Feb. 16th

    $220-250 each

    or

    $1200 for a pair of crazy rich person VIP tickets. (You get a separate campsite, showers, food, bleachers for the first and second stage, and "other amenities")

    I'd like to go either this or pitchfork's festival in Chicago. Since my roommate may have a job in Chicago this summer, it's more than likely going to be that. Hopefully the line up is good...

    I live in Alabama, so it would be stupid for me to not go to this.

    MUSIC

    The Bluegrass Allstars featuring Luke Bulla, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Bela Fleck and Edgar Meyer - Ben Folds - Iron & Wine - Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Robert Randolph’s Revival - Sigur Ros - Umphrey’s McGee - Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet featuring Bela Fleck

    COMEDY

    Mike Birbiglia - Zach Galifianakis

    75% chance of me going, if I can just get everything worked out.

    Somehow, when copy + pasting, I missed !!!, which is act I would really like to see as well.

    The rumor heavily circulating now is that we WILL see Zeppelin (Led Zeppelin!) and that they are holding off on this announcement until the first few tiers of tickets sell off. I only give this slight credence because there really is no 3rd night headliner lined up yet. This also would let them get tickets into the hands of people who want to go for the festival rather than aging boomers who would only show up for one night and scalpers. Is it really sad that I am already super pumped and this is 4 months away?...yeah it probably is.

    Tickets go on sale Sat. Feb. 16th.
