As some of you might know, I was emailing managers/agents to try find out who's playing Roo and Sasquatch. I have a good reputation over on inforoo so hopefully you'll believe the names I'm giving here. Bands I've personally confirmed:
In regards to Janelle Monae:
"i cannot guarantee it, but my bet would be on bonnaroo."
In regards to Polyphonic Spree:
"we are working on....if i was a betting man i would lean toward bonnaroo...nothing confirmed yet though...."
The weather was great in 2012. Come to Roo this year if you can make it!
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.
A lot of regular, reliable posters with a lot of reliable sources. I know when to trust a rumor over there and when not to (I've been posting there for almost 3 years), and this definitely seems legit.
They didnt just confirm him by what the European festival promoter said? That they tried to book Macca but he was already scheduled for a music festival in the USA the weekend of June 13-16......
Well, that's not exactly what the European promoter said. There was obviously a lot of speculation about this article, but there is a longtime poster over there who's fluent in Dutch and that guy's quote translated to "Paul seems to prefer American festivals," not that he was already booked/scheduled for a US festival. Slight difference but noteworthy.
Anyway, that got the speculation rolling on McCartney, but since then there's been more and more evidence piling up that Macca's playing Bonnaroo.
