I wish it were Kanye but I think there would be too many summers breeze in a sacs throwing stuff at him during his set. I think Bonnaroo might just want to avoid that situation out of safety concerns. Maybe I am making too much out of the Kanye hatred though.
I would love to see Kanye come back and redeem himself with a great show. I think hes earned another shot with how amazing his new record is but I know that im in the vast minority on this board with that opinion.
here is something, and it goes along with thinking small for headliners. im hearing rumors of of john mayer/kings of leon co headlining tour. obviously kol wont be there, but john mayer could headline. he's played before, he does get jammy when he wants, wouldnt support this idea, but he hasnt been talked about
with that in mind Arcade Fire . John Mayer . Black Crowes . My Morning Jacket The Roots & John Legend . Massive Attack . Robert Plant & BOJ
So I'm a noob, this year taking my son for his 18th birthday & can't wait to go. Been talking about going for years, has anyone mentioned The Cars as a possibility ? New album coming out in May, with a title and release date, I think this would be a great addition. One more while I'm at it, The Jayhawks...recently reformed played several show.... Hollywood Town Hall is a great album...Olson/Louris make great music together.
any chance the big rap headliner would be a tribe called quest? insider said the remaining 4 haven't really been talked about. they haven't and have headlined rock the bells tour last year. roo crowd would enjoy them. or it's the roots. or coolio.
whoever it ends up being, i'm excited about the confirms and semi-confirms so far.

Eminem is EXTREMELY dissapointing live. He uses a backing track for most of his vocals and is pretty static in his performance. Take a look at his set from VooDoo Fest a couple years back, he leaves A LOT to be desired. Coachella has been trying to book Outkast for last 5 or 6 years, it's not gonna happen. Andre 3000 doesn't perform live under the Outkast moniker anymore.
