    If I'm a 40 year old married U2 fan living in Atlanta, and my options are quick flight to Chicago for a Saturday show, quick flight to Miami for a Sunday show, or flight to Nashville, drive to Manchester, and spend one day on a farm in 100 degree weather with a $300 ticket before driving back to Nashvile, there's only one option I'm not considering.

    I know a lot of hard core U2 fans, none of whom are going to Bonnaroo since they can easily go to a stadium show. The fans in the South seem to be going to Florida (Tampa or Miami), DC or Houston.

    Good job, Live Nation: you've turned Bonnaroo into Lollapalooza, without the guaranteed built-in audience that Chicago offers.

    This is the worst lineup they've ever had. Not even the horde on Inforoo or CoS are defending it. I also don't think this lineup will move as much tickets as they think. If this lineup undersells like last year, I wouldn't be surprised to see the festival die sooner rather than later.

    EDIT: This thing is already on Tier 3 pricing, people will buy anything.

    Live Nation has One Republic and Lumineers as opening act for U2 gigs the days before/after their Bonaroo appearance. Neither are on the lineup. Not big fans of either, but that's very low hanging fruit.

    The first couple tiers are only a couple thousand. Are they still charging for camping this year?

    Why not spend your money on visiting a new city and a new fest. Bonnaroo can't have a worse lineup next year to return to.

    bought during the presale, no resale value, bunch of friends going. I'll figure out how to have a good time.

    Zero? Have you listened to: White Reaper, Khruangbin, Lucy Dacus, July Talk, The Orwells, badbadnotgood, MArgo Price, Kevin Morby? Lucas Nelson is Willie Nelson's son and is really good (also sounds a lot like Willie). No doubt that as a whole, this lineup is a dud, but there's still some stuff worth seeing if you're already going

    Barclay Crenshaw is Claude Von Stroke btw, so you're getting....2 of those sets. I don't really know what a Barclay Crewnshaw set consists of.
    1/17: Marching Church @ Rickshaw Stop
    1/23: No Age @ Starline Social Club
    1/26: The She's, Terry Malts @ The Independent
    1/27: Heron Oblivion @ The Chapel
    1/27: Christopher Rau, Jordan @ f8
    1/29: Silver Shadows, CCR Headcleaner @ Hemlock Tavern
    02/02: Lily's @ The Chapel

    being aware of about half of those, they're acts that would fill out a Bonnaroo lineup for me, I doubt I would buy tickets for a solo show from any of them. I think I saw the Orwell's for 15 minutes a couple years ago.

    I like that they have Superjam listed, but, like...who on that lineup would be an interesting participant in the Superjam? Maybe Flea could run it this year? Totally at a loss otherwise.

    i have never been to bonnaroo, did 9 years of coachella, 8 years of sxsw, a few lollas etc....this year my schedule looked like i could finally travel to bonnaroo in june, but after this line up, its a massive pass. i do regret not going during the golden years in the past, heard great stories from people that went
