It was a pretty amazing year which makes this a particularly tough list but I'll give it a shot
1. Soul Superjam - I had dangerously high expectations for this show and if it wasn't great I probably would of walked away disappointed. My expectations were completely blown out of the water. The band was incredibly tight and the setlist was amazing. It was basically a bunch of world class musicians coming together to play their favorite music and have a great time. It translated perfectly to the crowd for what may of been the most fun I have ever had a show.
2. Macca - I have mixed feelings about old has beens rehashing 40 year old hits, but Macca did it perfectly. If you didn't sing along for the majority of that show either you live under a rock or you have no soul.
3. Sam Bush and Del McCoury - Two legends doing exactly what they are known for, good clean amazing bluegrass. Out shone the rest of the bluegrass tent for me.
4. Jim James - My first time seeing the Jim solo show and it didn't disappoint. No MMJ but I enjoyed it a lot.
5. Foals - Woah. So much energy. Great, hard Rock n Roll. I had zero expectations for this show and they blew me away. Felt like a truly special show for the band and the crowd. They made a fan out of me
6. Glen Hansard - Wasn't expecting much but I enjoyed it a ton. Some cool covers and great sing-alongs
7. Johnny Fritz - Great music lounge show on Thursday. I've seen him a couple times and this was my favorite.
8. Petty - Played all the greats and some of my favorites that I wasn't expecting. I mean fucking Tweeter and the Monkey Man, Born a Rebel, and Friend of the Devil. Badass
9. Aoife O'Donovan - Beautiful start to Sunday. Exactly why I love the Sunday Country tent tradition.
10. Bluegrass Superjam - A little all over the place but a very fun show.
Pretty surprised that tame impala is #5. I guess I missed a good one
Tame impala was absolutely amazing!!
my top 10: 1. Macca (I know... Shocker) but my grandfather is a die hard Beatles fan, I was raised listening to them, just as many others were, always hearing stories of when he had seen the Beatles back in the day and when he saw Macca back in '87. Once I got home, he and I sat around and were able to look back on each of our chances to watch Macca and compare experiences and share stories, that talk was one of the happiest moments of my life, and its all thanks to bonnaroo! 2. Jack Johnson, the fact that he did this as a favor for bonnaroo on such short notice after having not played any of his music for around two years and and he is one of the oldest acts that I've been listening to since he started, due to my young age, him replacing Mumford was perfection for me, he'd be in front of anyone besides Macca 3. David Byrne and St. Vincent, ok, I expected this to really good, but they blew me away, listening to talking heads with my father as I grew up made this one of my must sees, and the encore with burning down the house put me on cloud nine and completely made me forget that I was about to rock out with one of this biggest names of all time a few hundred yards way just a few minutes later, which only added to the awesomeness. 4. Hip hop SJ, it's the first and possibly only hip hop super jam ever!!! All Wu tang?!?! That just more than I could have asked for, plus the fact that lettuce, my favorite jam band, was playing only made it that much more perfect. 5. Petty, he rocked the quack out!!! Threw age aside and showed all the young guns how its done, grew up listening to him with my dad 6. Tame impala, flawless, the only reason they aren't number one is because they are much easier to see than the acts I ranked ahead of them. 7. Rock 'n soul SJ, would be higher, but I missed part of it because I was at billy idol 8. Foals, blew me away, loved, tons of energy 9. Django Django, so much fun, so much energy, kept me going as I waited for FJM 10. Lee fields, awesome start to Sunday
1/25: Shannon & the Clams 1/28: Primus/TOOL 2/4: Michael Menert 2/5: Michael Menert 2/21: Protomartyr 4/29-5/1: Levitation Music Festival 5/26: Flaming Lips @ Red Rocks 6/26: The Cure@ Miami 7-28-7/31: Lollapalooza
First Post! Long time lurker finally jumping in....
After letting it settle for a week, this is where I am at.
1. Wilco - There seems to be a lot of disagreement on their set as I saw them on both a lot of Top Ten lists and Disappointment lists. I'm a fan and was fortunate it enough to see it from the pit, dead center about 30-40 feet from the rail. Sound was no issue there. I thought it was the best of the half dozen times I have seen them. They are a band in complete command of their game right now.
2. Of Monsters and Men - I enjoy their album and was looking forward to this and it didn't disappoint. Excellent performance.
3. John Fullbright - Never heard of him before doing research for this year. Very good songs. Very good musicians. Very good performance.
4. ZZ Top - Last saw them in 1990. They were still in their synthesizer phase then. I preferred just the raw, three piece Texas blues from this show.
5. Paul McCartney - I really struggled with where to place this show. On the one hand, it's a Beatle(!), I've never seen him before, tons of classic songs, he's in great shape and voice for 71, and it was a lot of fun. On the other hand, musically I thought it was fine but not great and while I like the Beatles and acknowledge their spot as the most important rock band ever, they were never my favorites. I have enjoyed other shows from bands/artists of that era more.
6. ALO (Sonic Stage) - They were the perfect fit for a sunny, afternoon set on this stage.
7. Reptar - My wife dragged me to this one and I am glad she did. They were having the most fun on stage of any band I saw over the weekend.
8. Sea Wolf
9. Lord Huron
10. Jack Johnson - Nice show, credit for stepping in at the last minute as he did.

A-Trak ended up probably being the worst set I saw all weekend.
