Instead of going straight to Superjam after R. Kelly this year, I made an of-the-moment decision with my dad to check out a couple songs each of Billy Idol and Weird Al (this was my idea and I don't think he really cared what we did.) I didn't really care for what I saw of Billy Idol (really was just hoping to hear White Wedding, Rebel Yell, and/or Dancing With Myself) and while it was fun to see Weird Al do "Fat", I probably could have done without it (also caught "White and Nerdy", which was just awful.) Finally got to Superjam when they were finishing up the Sly material, but I wish I'd seen the whole thing, especially after seeing the set list when I got home. I am glad I got to see what I did, though (tail end of main set, plus the absolutely incredible encore.)
summerteeth214, I feel I made some similarly rough decisions on Saturday. That LN was just a mess of conflicts. I started at "Weird Al" and was super happy to revisit my first concert ever while on The Farm. Moved over to Billy Idol in the middle of his set and stayed till almost the end, so I did get to hear most of my favorites, but I was really far back. Finally moved on to the Superjam, and kinda wished I had just been there the whole time!

Biggest regret is definitely missing Black Prairie in favor of seeing David Cross. I wasted so much of my day standing in line first for the ticket, then to get a good seat, and I thought he was atrocious! I already liked Black Prairie but after Bonnaroo I became a much bigger fan so I'm pretty bummed now. Not to mention I could have used the rest of the time to explore and see random bands.
Last time I see a comedian when a band I know is playing, or even stand in THAT awful of a line even if no one I know is playing. Stand up is great but music is better.
Not getting an Amish doughnut in time, I tried Sunday but centeroo was shut down. Maybe Kendrick Lamar, I'm a fan but didn't feel his set to much. Probably because I had someone hating on the lyrics the whole time beside me. I have no idea why they stayed the whole show. An I'm definitely getting rest one day so I can party hard at night. Only late night show I saw was empire of the sun an it was awesome.
