I'm psyched for this, especially with the stellar lineup. Looks like I'll be hitting a mix of melodic indie bands (Animal Collective, Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear) and alt country (Todd Snider, Robert Earl Keen, Merle).

Wish I could go see it. Had to take a week of pto to study for the CFA.

Make sure you go see the Mars Volta. I saw them here in TX and they played a 3 hour nonstop set. It was awesome.

They're opposite Wilco, so that's a no go.

The time slot is brutal, with the Decemberists and Elvis Costello as well.

I really can't see many people loving TMV AND Wilco... 2 completely different styles.

i enjoy both, though for completely different reasons. mars volta is fun, but i can't stand the vocals. from a musical perspective, they can rip.

2 out of 3 for me. Last year fell apart at the last minute.

Bonnaroo is the best. I have been to Coachella the last three years too since I live in SoCal but it just isn't the same. I'm actually not that stoked on the top of the lineup this year but will look forward to checking out some of the smaller bands. The latenight shows are the best. Great to get away from work, party all day and night and watch/hear great music almost 24 hours a day for four days.

I liked Wakarusa being in our backyard.... sucks they moved it. I'm not 19 anymore, so I cannot roadtrip.
