Not a bad lineup, although I could do without RHCP.

Mogwai is buried in that lineup.

There is a band called Dale Ernhardt Jr Jr? That might be the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life.

I can't believe that this festival full of top 40 acts sounds like anyone's idea of a good time. I'd rather hang out at a Wal-Mart.

Haters Hate or they are Hated = LOST and looking for love somewhere outside of themselves

Posted by Anonymous | February 14, 2012 12:44 PM

looks like a solid line up, quality headliners. its great to see radiohead return to manchester, 2006 was amazing. longest radiohead show on record..maybe they'll beat that this summer? that being said, after doing Roo in 06 and 09, i think i'm calling it quits. too hot, too dirty. see you in Indio!

Or just telling it like it is. Sorry that it ruffles your feathers that not everyone agrees with what you like. Shame you are so pathetic that you have to justify it to yourself by saying these people are lost or lacking love.

not gonna go (bands will play ny) but this lineup is pretty great. bonnaroo is an awesome time in general. well worth going (rent an RV with friends though) for the experience if you haven't been before. very very fun laid back time.

12:54 ... Not ruffled and certainly no need to apologize!

Just to be clear, to me there is a distinct difference between "hating" and simply expressing ones opinion.

I am certainly not calling out people that are simply expressing an opinion.

Posted by Anonymous | February 14, 2012 1:06 PM

There's enough great bands on that bill to totally justify the expense if you're from an area that doesn't see many tours.

Some of that rap is quite unfortunate, though. Das Racist? Childish Gambino? Mac Miller?

Jesus. Poor Ludacris, having to share a bill with that shit.

Well .. you said "sorry"

You and I do not have the same point of view that's all. "Hater-ism" and "not liking something" are different to me.

That post was for the "haters" and not for people that have no interest in the bands performing at Bonnarroo.

Anyway, not trying to convince you of anything. Just clarifying. See ya!

1:17 - cheers to you for logically explaining your position. We need more of this behavior to weed out the trolls!

Posted by Anonymous | February 14, 2012 1:21 PM

Yeah, most of the posters here don't seem like "haters" at all, except the poster calling out "haters."

I personally don't see the appeal of this at all, and the five or so performing bands I really like I've seen multiple times, and the five or so I wouldn't mind seeing doesn't justify the price, the travel, the smell, the teenagers covered with indian face paint, and the dozens of acts I actively dislike.
