This broadcast is terrible

This is painful to watch

This lineup is terrible so far. It still looks like Pitchfork is the best this year and they only announced 3 acts!

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 1:15 PM

hopefully Young Boys are headlining

Well, I guess no Mozzers then

how long til the headliners get announced...

Posted by Rich | February 19, 2013 1:26 PM

They should have hired DJ Clay, Awesome Dre, and Sugar Slam from the Gathering Of The Juggalos infomercials to host this.

what a horrible way to announce a lineup

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 1:27 PM

So basically the same line-up as all the other festivals that we've already thoroughly trashed here on BV.

BILLY IDOL! AWE YEAH BOYS!

This line up does not seem like the line ups of other festivals so far

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 1:37 PM

Actually pretty great how all of you fuckers can't get the instant gratification / dissatisfaction that a quick roll out provides.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 1:41 PM

Bjork!!!!! G-D

Paul Mccartney...must be a new comer :0

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this a list of acts that have played NYC over the period Jul-Dec 2012?

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 2:15 PM

shitty the name

Bonnaroo is still one of the best large scale music festival we have in the US. It's the only festival I can think of where there is no set curfew. But, the line-up is usually littered with jam bands and artists that pass through NYC regularly. So there has been no reason for me to trek down to Manchester, TN.

However, I am starting to see that they are booking more progressive artists and moving away from jam bands. I actually think this is the best line-up they have put out in recent memory. Still not enough for me to go, but their headed in the right direction.

they've been getting more progressive since 2006. and yes its the best festival

Actually this looks like the best lineup I've seen of any festival yet this year.

Yeahhhhhh......Firefly is catching up to Roo' quite quickly.

I am convinced that some of the miserable hipsters on this thread wouldn't have been impressed even if Bonnaroo had brought Jim Morrison back from beyond the grave. This lineup is effin' rad. If you don't like it, your parents will be thankful that you're not going to ask them for money so you can go with all your trustfund bros. I'm here all night, folks.

Posted by Megan Venzin | February 19, 2013 3:46 PM

what does progressive even mean?

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 3:50 PM

I heard Bonaroo has the highest quality hummus available at the food stands. Can anyone confirm?

Bonnaroo FTW yet again... have fun at Coach and Fat Axl Ball, losers.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2013 4:37 PM

This looks awesome. Better than any other festival line-up so far.

Lack of decent headliners aside, this is a pretty solid bill. At least Pretty Lights is the only thing that jumps out as out and out nauseating.

Is the era of "The Headliner - 1960's-90's" over? Lots of decent bands at this fest but not many true headliners. What happened to the music scene? Radiohead were the last really huge band.350 Good point. What do people mean by "progressive"? And why is Matt & Kim playing this or any other fest? They are awful!

reading this list just made me realize that i don't care about current music
