One of the first orders of business on Mayor Karl Dean's recently revamped Music City Music Council's agenda was to push to stagger CMA and Bonnaroo on separate consecutive weekends. Spyridon says the council has begun talks with the festivals to keep them separated. While a permanent solution is yet to be met, Spyridon says that next year, "by good fortune," the two festivals will transpire on different dates — with CMA happening June 6-9 and Bonnaroo slated for June 13-16. It's a change he'd like to make permanent.
I know these have been mentioned before but I'd love to see
Art vs Science (LN or where big gigantic's slot was) M83 (LN) Justice (they killed it in atlanta, i can see this being skrillex's slot at the which stage) Reptar Empire Of The Sun The Supervillans would just be so much fun Gorillaz (if possible as an P-HL) Gramatik Manu Chao Los Fabulosos Cadillacs (not sure if bonnaroo does much latin rock but i would love this) Queens Of The Stone Age/Them Crooked Vultures (ill be happy with either) Rubblebucket (they were in my top 5 from this year) Wilco Jack White-related group Wolfmother did mention working on new stuff Zedd
Theres more to that list but whatever, this is good enough for now lol
After the Strokes performance last year, I hope they never come back. That was the lamest show of 2011.
Big disappointment there. Not that I was expecting them to be mind-blowing, but I did expect a better show. Not only that, but they came out late, and I was already splitting that slot between The Strokes and Explosions in the Sky. While waiting for them to come onstage I was cracking jokes about Julian's demeanor- that he'd come out drunk, in a leather jacket and sunglasses, and basically hang onto the mic stand the whole show....which is exactly what happened.
Thankfully, Explosions in the Sky completely redeemed that afternoon and moved me to tears (again).
