I'm planning to see Beirut for about an hour, then Explosions for about an hour. I made my vote for Beirut since that will be the first of the two.
I have no interest in seeing the Strokes. The Band of Joy setlists haven't looked all that exciting this year, and I already saw him with with Krauss at '08. The Superjam, however, will be an unfortunate loss for me.

I'm wired in a way that makes me unable to miss a SuperJam. I suppose if it was someone I detested, I'd make an exception. But when else will I get to see Dr. John and Dan Auerbach? And who knows who else will be there? These one of a kind collaborations are my favorite part of Bonnaroo.

I tried to make this a few hours but my phone wouldn't let me so I got frustrated and quit. I'm glad someone else did it for me! Although I haven't really decided. I'll Probably split my time up I guess. You should add an option for that, or allow us to Pick multiple options.

I'll probably make a circle around Centeroo. I'll catch the first 40 minutes or so of Robert Plant on What then head to Which for a song or two by The Strokes. After that i'll head over to This Tent and try to catch a few minutes of Explosions In The Sky.Around 6:55 I'll cut through the fountain and the market, straight to That Tent, hopefully before the beginning of Superjam.
edit : I still have no idea what I'm going to do during Iron & Wine vs. Gregg Allman. It will probably be a decision I'll make right before the 4:30 start time.
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

Watch Plant until a Zeppelin tune is played, then go over and meet my friends at The Strokes. Then, when they finish early as always, catch a fair bit of Superjam, which runs later than The Strokes anyways. So when you also factor in The Strokes finishing early and Superjam hopefully running late, I could get a solid half hour or more of that.
Home. But if I were able to stay, it would be an hour of Plant > all of Superjam. The Strokes are great, but I have seen them before (albeit many moons ago), and Explosions in the Sky and Beirut both seem like they tour a decent amount, so I know I'll get a chance to see them again.

Didn't vote but I'm not missing a second of Plant, even though out of all those bands I enjoy the music of Explosions the most. And of course SuperJam's a one-time deal, so....All of Plant, last bit of Explosions for me, hopefully with enough time to catch the last 2 songs of SuperJam.
Back when friends of mine were crushing on Donny Osmond and David Cassidy, I was crushing on Robert Plant. (even then there were signs I'd be different). So I have to see at least a little of him for sentimental reasons.
And I have to see a little of Gregg, for sentimental reasons too. Gregg was essentially part of my coming of age when I lived in Macon and the Brothers lived at the Big House and played the park often.
Beyond that...leaning towards Superjam but I do love EITS.
I'm just going to put on a major buzz that day I think, and not be responsible for any of my decisions...lol

My plan was to stay for BoJ until Superjam started but I knew it would be tough to leave. I stayed for the whole set and caught part of The Strokes. Heard some of Superjam on the way out of Centeroo for clandestine activities. All in all it worked out great because BoJ was my favorite set of the fest.
