I am seriously the happiest girl in the world. I cannot imagine what I would need to make this lineup better. Oh wait, Les Claypool. But that's it! Oh wait and the Polyphonic Spree. But that's it! Oh wait Particle. But there are more announcements to come! So there!

Can you imagine if I am tripping whilst seeing Elvis? Can you imagine if I'm rolling?? I think I'd rush the stage.

Like, Beck, Radiohead, and Elvis Costello are three of my top five artists. Fourth is They Might Be Giants and the fifth one rotates.

This shit is going to sell out like fucking crazy.

Seriously though you guys, The Neville Brothers? Seriously?
Feb. 1st, 2006 02:38 pm (UTC)
That was exactly the lineup I was fearing. Just good enough to make me want to go, not quite good enough to justify the time and expense. When do we need to purchase tickets by?
Feb. 1st, 2006 02:42 pm (UTC)
Tickets go on sale Feb. 11th. You've got a week and a half to make a decision. Hopefully they'll announce more artists before then, though this IS a big lineup ...

Wait, so, no email, but you can LiveJournal at work? This is useful information.

That is a really good lineup. God I need to sell some fucking loans.
Feb. 1st, 2006 04:10 pm (UTC)
Obviously, I'm crazy hype on the lineup that I'm seeing. That said, am I wrong in feeling a tad down that as of right now because there is no Les... there is no Particle... there is no Mars Volta.

While I'd love for them to be there... it really doesn't matter because Radiohead and Beck are more than enough to get me there!
Feb. 1st, 2006 06:36 pm (UTC)
pray for updates
you are not wrong in feeling down. i can't say i'm as excited as kerry is. while radiohead, beck, elvis, etc. are awes...i can't help but feel sad about the lack of les, trey, dave, bill laswell, karsh kale, polyphonic spree, particle, string cheese, disco biscuits, j5, and the roots. i'm sure there are some others that i'm not even thinking of right now. i do feel good about soulive, rusted root, matisyahu, g. love, and phil lesh. one time when i go to bonnaroo i would like there to be ONE of my top bands. is that so much to ask? meanwhile, kerry has three. this means i'm going to listen to nothing but radiohea and beck for the next 5 months. don't mistake me bing pissed off for me not wanting to go now. i'm all in. now i regret not going last year.

Nice, the guy who sang the Portugese David Bowie songs in the Life Aquatic?
Feb. 1st, 2006 05:04 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah! Seu Jorge, right?

You should come with! It's going to be awesome! You like those bands!

That is an impressive lineup.
Feb. 1st, 2006 07:29 pm (UTC)
see, i was hoping to really get my socks blown right off my ass here. i'm looking at a round trip plane ticket, plus an event ticket, plus whatever other expenses (RV/food/druqks/etc). without a job, that is a lot of money. i don't know. how long do i have to decide? this lineup is like the most mainstream yet, with the least number of exciting, hard-to-see acts. this announcement is more saddnening & confusing to me than anything.
Feb. 1st, 2006 07:45 pm (UTC)
Damn it!!! The more I think about this lineup... the more confused and frustrated I get. No Particle??? No Les??

Is it me or are you starting to get the vibe that most of the acts that have been there in years past were either not invited or declined to go because of Bonnaroo's desire to go more mainstream??

Did you know that Bonnaroo finished SECOND to only U2 in gross revenue for concerts last year?? There's a reason they've had such success and there's a reason Woodstock '69 was a hit while Woodstock '94 and Woodstock '99 were not and it has a little something to do with sucking the Almighty Corporate Cock.

also I WANT TO GO. i haven't DONE IT with beck in oh, like...twenty-two years now.
Feb. 1st, 2006 08:58 pm (UTC)
Rolling = on ecstasy (the drug).

Oh man! If you went! I would finally get to meet Lindsey J. Markel! That would be terribly exciting!
Feb. 1st, 2006 08:36 pm (UTC)
Also... I just chatted with Amy Loveland and she states that both her and her manfriend, Elliot, want to go to the Roo this year and that they are interested in going down with us if possible. They state that they would be willing to go in on an RV as well. I'm pretty sure all of you have met both Amy and Elliot since they've both been to the Manse a couple of times for parties.
Feb. 1st, 2006 10:21 pm (UTC)
For me this is a very solid line up. Not that Bonnaroo was only about the music for me anyway. Dresden Dolls, Ben Folds, Radiohead and a bunch of other great people. I'm all in! Also, we need to make a final decision on the RV when we buy tickets.
Feb. 4th, 2006 01:25 pm (UTC)
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. *wiping tear from cheek* I want to go
Feb. 8th, 2006 04:07 am (UTC)
Just doing a google on "motorcycles" and "bonnaroo" I stumbled on this. The lineup looks awesome. I went in 04. I am considering riding my motorcycle down there in some crazy grand adventure this summer. I wonder if bonnaroo has motorcycle camping area's so i'm not in the car farm?....
