8 bonnaroos in.... who do you think has dominated the latenight scene at the farm? justify your answer however you wish, i only included artists that have played more than one latenight (to me that shows as of this year which artists are in bonnaroo's eyes most worthy of latenights, but hey if you don't agree i gave you another option )
part me of wants to answer galactic or sts9 just because theyve played the most bonnaroo latenights, but many of the 2002 attendees say that moe. set the bar that year and some would say it still has not been reached, and after this year's 4 and 1/2 hour party i would have to give them my vote.

Historically it would be Galactic. They have brought late night heat one more occasions than anyone else. From Krewe de Carnivale, to the unannounced Chali-2na set last year. I enjoyed the MMJ show last year, but Galactic owned my face, as they had late night every time I have seen them.

I think Jess has it right. Galactic has played latenight at half the Bonnaroos so far (02, 05, 07, and 08 -- one's missing in the poll) and they've brought it every time. Their shows have been full of surprises, collaborations, and everything else that has come to define latenight at Roo.
MMJ. Hands down. I have missed some of the other legendary late nights, but I caught moe. and Galactic and STS9, and I'm a bigger fan of those three than MMJ, but those guys just have something unnameable when they play on the farm. Anyone remember the unplanned Particle show waaaaaaaaay back in the day?
