    I had big hopes for this line up. Unless Lolla and Outside Lands pull off something crazy, I really think Coachella has, by far, the best line up this year. No one else has got At The Drive In, Refused, and of couse, D.R.E.

    I wrote about my experiences at Bonnaroo, mainly about my first time around and all the impressions I had. If you're interested in Roo, I think you'll enjoy reading it:

    http://gabfrab.wordpress.com/2012/02...rt-is-not-cum/

    "It all seems tame those first opening hours, even after seeing a wall painting that argues “Art is Not Cum.” But then the music starts, the sun dies, and everything changes. “Bonnarooooooooo!”"


    If I weren't alone on Valentine's this would be a pretty fantastic day haha. Thank god I can print out the Roo lineup for ten cents on a library computer and then snuggle it and feed it cereal and play out choke fantasies with it.

    No this isn't as good as Coachella for me, but they're different festivals and both provide tons of great stuff that will fill your weekend with fun. Plus the Roo late nights are uncomparable. Not a ton of jaw droppers for me, but lots of solid great stuff. So much indie, and that's right up my alley. A large chunk of what I really want to see will already be at Sasquatch, so I'm going to be seeing a bunch of cool acts a couple weeks in a row. Hope y'all have an awesome time at the fest!

    Here's what I like after doing zero research, and this itself would content me for a fun weekend:

    Radiohead
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Bon Iver
    The Beach Boys (let's hope they add Stamos and that he personally demands Dave Coulier and Bob Saget to be added to the lineup, including a live rendition of a Full House episode)
    The Shins
    Foster the People
    Skrillex
    Aziz Ansari (the set of his I saw in 2010 was probably the best live comedy I've ever seen)
    Alice Cooper
    Black Star
    Ludacris (god yes!)
    Ben Folds Five
    Major Lazer
    tUnE-yArDs
    Flying Lotus
    Little Dragon
    St. Vincent
    Young the Giant
    Fitz & the Tantrums
    SBTRKT
    Phantogram
    The Joy Formidable
    Kurt Vile & the Violators
    Das Racist
    The War on NO NO WORD!!!
    Grouplove (they are fantastic live and have a fairly good NPR Tiny Desk Concert: http://www.npr.org/event/music/14113...y-desk-concert)
    White Denim
    EMA
    Big Freedia (Treme makes me want this)
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
    More to be announced (Heard these dudes do a solid show and throw in some Floyd covers)
    I must have looked as if I were a diseased creature. Covered in cigarette cartons like bird shit, smeary colored face, drinking wine out of a pair of sweat pants. A dead baby hung off the side of my head -- crying to get high on smokes and glue.

    Bonnaroo once again presents a line-up that even on a bad year Coachella is much better line-up. It has proven once again why I will never go to the hills of Tennessee to sit and sweat in the dirt and grime when I can sweat in the California sunshine where I never have to worry about the festival turning into some kind of mud pit. The line-up is weak at best...even for Bonnarro.

    Not really, but Lolla has proven itself over the past few years that they put on one of the best festivals in the Country. The layout is great, the new additions to the fest are great, the food is great, the crowds aren't that bad if you ask me, and the lineup's have been pretty damn diverse and well... great. I've been saying Metallica since last year and I think that whoever is leaking this information is probably about 80% on the money but anyone could make those guesses. I think if it is The Killers and RHCP (which do make sense as far as touring acts go or acts with new albums on the way) as 2 of the headliners I'll be a little disappointed because I've seen that fest. Give us something more than that. Bjork, Outcast, The Cure, something that Chicago really hasn't seen yet.

    edit - and seeing what Damon Albarn is up to this year it wouldn't surprise me if Blur was possibly on that headliner list

    IMO, some Euro fests will surpass the Coachella lineup.

    If they get Jacke White/Garbage/Sigur/Beck/Sonic/ATDI I'd say they have Chella beat.

    Much better then sasquatch? are you kidding. For being half the size of Bonnaroo, Sasquatch has just as many solid acts if not more then Bonnaroo. But to each is own I guess. Bonnaroo is top heavy while sasquatch entire lineup is deep.

    It'd probably be more suitable to compare Bonnaroo to Burning Man instead of Coachella, amirite? Dirt, heat, and more dirt.


    I think I'd have a good time with this line up. Jealous of The Roots, Black Star, Luda and Mogwai.

    You are completely wrong. Bonnaroo is a garbage dump compared to Burning Man. Shit, compared to a Garbage Dump and the dump may win. Roo is humid, the fields are not nice to walk on, and the mud that you can get is terrible. Burning Man, yeah it's dusty and hot, but it's desert hot. There is dirt. Never compare the two again
