I will be a six year 'roo vet, and my heart lies a lot with '02 just cause the first was just crazy, cause no one knew what to expect, and there was a lot of unannounced, impromptu music that you just had to be wandering around to find.
This year has the potential to be the best Bonnaroo ever.
If in the rest of the artist additions I got the following.....
Yonder Mountain String Band Primus ( but will take any form of Claypool ) MMW ( hopefully w/ Scofield ) Greyboy Allstars Robert Randolph Trey ( any assemblance of Phish members )
Actually that's greedy, If I got 4 of these 6 added in the rest of the additions, I will go as far as to say that this will be the BEST music lineup in the Festival's history. That is hard to say but IMO a very true statement.
I can't wait for the next addition, I need at least a few more bands to ease the pain of waiting another 101 days.
This will be my 6th year. I say every year that it's probably my last but then the line-up always pulls me back in. My favorite year was the 2nd year, because I got a camping spot extremely near the Main Stage entrance of Centeroo and Neil Young played that year. And I'm a huge Neil fan and that's the only time I've seen him with Crazy Horse, though I have seen him acoustic solo and with CSNY.
roo number 3 for me, going since 05. 2006 was absolutely incredible, the drive, the people, the music, the weather, all excellent. two words, radiohead and phil. Saturday night was nothing short of a religious experience last year and sunday's phil show was indescribable, nothing beats my friends rant about phil's show, "i'm standing there watching phil, and there's 40,000 people around me ... all tripping, every single one of em. And not only that, there's families of people, all tripping. Then, the glowsticks came."
