THis is gonna kick major ass. Thursday: Grand ole party or superdrag / MGMT / Battles / Knaan / Vampire Weekend / Lez Zeppelin / porte Batiste maybe Friday: Drive By Truckers / Stephen Marley / Les Claypool / The Racontuers / Willie Nelson / Chris Rock / Metallica / My Morning Jacket maybe Superjam / Tiesto Saturday: Louis CK / Gogol Bordello / Cat Power / BB King / corn break / Kanye / Pearl Jam / THe Coup / Sigur Ros / Ghostland / Charlie Sunday: Rogue Wave / Robert Randolps Revival / Oar / Robert Plant / Death Cab/ Panic and Party
This really turned out the best I could hope for. I was sure there would be a conflict on Thursday for the three bands I wanted to see - Vampire, MGMT and Battles. Nope!
The only major conflict is Ozo and Gogol but I have seen both plenty of times and would rather see Gogol. Then will miss first part of the Avett's set but that is a minor complaint. I was also sure that I was going to miss MIA and she was scheduled perfectly for me.
wow this is an awesome schedule. i really like how pearl jam isnt starting until 10 so there is a big "pre-headliner" party with jack johnson and kanye... looks like he'll get his glow in the dark show now. the b.b. king and ZPZ is the worst conflict of the weekend for me.
friday late night for me will be MSTRKRFT and DISCO BISCUITS. i really wanted to see MMJ again but since ive seen them and havent seen MSTRKRAFT or Bisco it is really a no brainer. and saturday late night will be 4 hours of phil lesh. other than that no real conflicts for me. awesome awesome im so excited.
Thursday Back Door Slam > Zach Galifianakis, Reggie Watts, John Mulaney > Vampire Weekend > the rest of Dark Star Orchestra
Friday some of Jose Gonzalez > some of The Fiery Furnaces > Stephen Marley > some of Les Claypool > the rest of The Raconteurs > Willie Nelson > Chris Rock > Metallica > Superjam
Saturday Louis CK and Joe DeRosa > Gogol Bordello > some of BB King > Iron & Wine > Jack Johnson > Pearl Jam > some Phil Lesh > maybe some Sigur Ros > some Lupe Fiasco > some Talib Kweli > the rest of Phil Lesh
Sunday Rogue Wave > Robert Randolph's Revival > Solomon Burke > Robert Plant & Allison Krauss > the rest of Death Cab for Cutie
I must say that I am both supprised, happy and upset at this schedule. There are supprisingly few conflicts for me, which I think means great scheduling on their part, but I must ask, why does the number 1 headliner, Pearl Jam get shafted into a 2 hour set because of the ABB cancelation??? PJ is a band that plays for 3 + hours at their normal show, to only schedule them for 2 hours is a heart breaker. I just hope they come out and play a lot with Jack Johnson, cause I was truly hoping for an epic 3-3.5 hour PJ set

I can't believe how amazingly this schedule worked out! Every day is jam packed, and yet I get to see at least a half hour of each band I wanna see!! Shoot, I haven't factored in comedy yet, really wanna see Zach Galifinakis. Oh well, I'll figure that out later. This is incredible!

I can't believe this schedule. So many conflicts but they are WONDERFUL conflicts. I think the whole "see them before they stop touring" and "who doesn't come around my area that much" rules have to be set for a lot of this. I am really pumped for a stacked Thursday!
Has anyone tried printing this off the Bonnaroo site? None of the times or the little boxes lined up right, makes it hard to start a plan... Looked at Jambase but didn't see anything there. If another schedule shows up, please post!
Friday looks sweet with The Raconteurs -> Rilo Kiley (although I wish it wasn't during Willie) -> time to get a spot for MMJ -> MMJ!!!
Saturday - Sharon Jones -> Gogol Bordello (wish they were in a tent instead of the hot sun - and wish they didn't overlap with Mastodon - but ok) -> Iron & Wine or Levon Helm (tough call) -> Kanye (just for the hell of it) -> Sigur Ros
Sunday - looks to be a pretty laid back day for me - really only psyched about Plant & Krauss and I might catch some of WSP if I'm in the mood.
Yeah, I feel just the same. Someone really Charlie Foxtrotted the Saturday schedule. Gogol Bordello conflicting with Against Me! and Mastodon kind of irks me. Besides that, I don't have too many conflicts, besides having to switch stages so many times.
