Personally, I find this lineup weak.
I love Jack White - I've seen him in every capacity. He's my number one must see on this lineup and even I don't buy him as a headliner. Maybe he's got something in the works, but if he's doing the Peacocks/Buzzards thing, I don't see it as a "headliner" style show. (Don't get me wrong, he will put on an excellent show)
Considering some of the other "high-tier" acts booking festival dates this year, I think Bonnaroo picked all the wrong ones.
I'd rather have Clapton than Elton I'd rather have Beck than Phoenix I'd rather have anyone than Skrillex I'd much rather have Outkast than Kanye
Definitely not my favorite Bonnaroo lineup. That being said, I'm sure I'll find some new stuff, rediscover some old stuff, and have a good time nonetheless; afterall, it is Bonnaroo.
2017 1.11: Run the Jewels @ The Electric Factory 4.13: Floating Points @ Brooklyn Steel 4.29: Bonobo @ The Electric Factory 5.17: The xx & Sampha @ The Mann 6.07: The Avalanches @ TLA 6.16: Sigur Ros @ The Mann 6.25: Dead & Company @ BB&T Pavilion 7.14 -7.16: Forecastle Music Festival 7.17: Gorillaz, Danny Brown, Vince Staples @ Merriweather Post Pavilion 7.31: Fleet Foxes & Animal Collective @ The Mann 9.17: Arcade Fire @ Wells Fargo Center
For me, this is the best lineup Bonnaroo's ever had.
Agreed. Could not be more excited.
Elton John Kanye West Jack White Lionel Richie Vampire Weekend Skrillex Arctic Monkeys Frank Ocean Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Kaskade Damon Albarn Skrillex Superjam Disclosure Cut/Copy Umphrey's McGee Ice Cube Janelle Monae Chvrches Die Antwoord Mastodon Jake Bugg Yonder DBT Washed Out Sam Smith Pusha T Meshuggah Cloud Nothings Break Science Big Sam Deafheaven
Hell I'd be stoked if 5-7 of those artists were playing at any given 3 day festival. Really seems to cover a lot of genres. Rock, old white guy, hip/hop, a few different kinds of EDM (dubstep, progressive house, house), metal (3 very different metal acts in mastodon/meshuggah/deafheaven), singer songwriter, jamband-y (umphreys/yonder), R&B, nola R&B, and a variety of different subgenres i won't attempt to name that fall under the the umbrella of "indie".
2/2/17 - Louis CK - New Orleans - Mahalia Jackson 4/3/17 - Radiohead - New Orleans - Arena 4/19/17 - Bob Weir - Mobile - Saenger 4/21/17 - Umphreys - New Orleans - Civic 5/6/17 - Sturgill - Orange Beach - The Wharf 5/27-29/17 - Movement - Detroit 7/9/17 - Metallica - Atlanta - SunTrust Park 8/4-6/17 - Phish - NYC - MSG 10/27-29/17 - Voodoo - New Orleans

I hope people do their Jack White homework and realize he is going to be the show of the weekend. He has so many ways to rise to the top. Solo album-white stripes-raconteurs-2 touring bands-he drums-he wails the guitar.

Only five lines on that whole line-up that don't contain at least one artist i wanna see right now. Much less amid the madness on the farm. And thats counting the whole line taken up by something i can't identify,lol. And considering the top/mid is so loaded. May not be everyones tastes....but Roo nailed it for me. Still bummed about Outkast tho.
