I'm interested to see what people are actually planning to do. There is a lot of vocal opposition to KoL on this board, but I'm pretty sure the anti-KoL are more outspoken than the pro-KoL. Despite that, I think their show will be about as poorly attended as Widespread Panic '08, which was sparse.

I voted KOL because I liked their music before Sex On Fire and Use Somebody got overplayed, and nothing's different now. And maybe they did it a little too fast? (Though 6 years is really not that fast) But I think it's kind of neat that they've been able to work their way through the ranks of Bonnaroo so to speak, and all this really does in my mind, is make it seem all the more possible that MMJ might get the chance to do the same (next year?) sometime soon. So I'd like to support that aspect of this idea as well.
But I would have voted for some of each if I could, because Bakerton Group is awesome and I would like to see some of that show too. But Clutch is even better, so I don't mind missing some Bakerton for the chance to maybe finally hear Arizona live, because I really love that song, it often gives me goosebumps when it comes on.
KOL aren't bad but I've seen them three times. I'll probably watch because there's nothing else playing.
There are at least 8 bands I'll have to miss because of schedule conflicts that I would skip KOL to see. Putting them alone on the main stage with no one else playing was a serious misjudging of the audience. Flaming Lips, Black Keys, LCD Soundsystem and OK GO are starters for bands I would rather see instead of KOL if they were playing at the same time.
