Bonnaroo Lineup Announced

Posted by MajorLB

Two summers ago I was convinced to drive 14 hours to some music festival in BFE Tennessee. Bonnaroo ended up being a highlight of that summer and possibly my life. Last summer I was moving and I didn't know anyone else going and I wasn't that thrilled about the lineup. The 2009 lineup was just announced and I'm pretty freaking excited and want to go. Now I just need to convince some more people to go. Check out the initial lineup announcement video below.

For an easier look here's the lineup list. Every time I read that list I see more to be excited about. If I tried to list my favorites I would probably list 3/4 of the list. None of the "headliners" get my attention like Police did in 2007, but then again his concert wasn't that good anyway.

Tickets go on sale this Saturday. If I can work it out with vacation and logistics, I'll be there. Let me know if you're planning on going, what you think about the 2009 lineup, and share any crazy previous music festival stories in the comments or email me at majorlb@immediateregret.com.

I've always wanted to go to Bonnaroo. I won't make this one, as it's far and almost all of the acts I'd want to see I've already seen.

A few thoughts on some of the bands:
I saw Erykah Badu at ACL and I thought she was awful.
I'm glad to see moe. on there, as it means they are more likely to play one of the summer festivals I will make it too.
Rodrigo y Gabriela are awesome.
Wish I would have caught more of Okkervil River at ACL.
I'm excited to see Delta Spirit this month.
Lots of other good stuff on there, enjoy if you make it LB.
