ok, so for those of you out there who dig the electronic stuff, what djs (or live electronic acts) would you like to see added? last year had some pretty sweet guys spin...josh wink, mark farina, rjd2...
as far as I can tell cut chemist is the only dj booked yet.
I'd like to see:
DJ Shadow Mark Farina Ming and FS RJD2 Royksopp Aphex Twin Amon Tobin
Although he's not really a DJ how about someone as far out as St. Germain? Anyone else familiar with his stuff? One of the originators of House music as we know it today. Plus those crazy Jazz rythms behind the beats are a great fit. I'd really say check him out if you haven't heard.
I'm pretty new to the whole DJ scene but I'm increasingly interested in it.
The situation last year where the sound from the DJ's in the Arcade bled over into one of the concert tents was unfortunate (I was annoyed by it during Mike and Leo and MMW), but I hope they don't overreact and cut down on the DJ presence. Fix the sound situation, don't take away the DJ's!
I would like to see: DJ Spooky Anyone from Quannum crew including DJ Shadow, Chief Xcel, and DJ D-Sharp RJD2
I am starting to get into this scene via hip-hop but can anyone reccommend any CD's that feature DJ's doing their own thing instead of them supporting rappers? Point me in the right direction here.
I have to second the thought about Beastie Boys. My husband put together a CD of all their instrumental songs, and we take it to shows with us. Nobody can ever guess that it's Beastie Boys. They are much much more than "fight for your right". They are definitely bad ass and they deserve a spot at Bonnaroo.

I saw the Beasties last year at Field Day at Giants Stadium and the mass majoirty were dissapointed with them. Beck got hurt at the last minute and could have made the best of it, but the screwed up three times during their set. If they were ever to play again they need to get their act together. Besides, I can't see the besties at roo...too alternative.
Hey all, I know I mentioned these guys earlier but after talking to one of the guys associated with the band it seems that they aren't big enough a band to hit up the 'Roo yet. I wanna help change that for next year 'cuz I know they would fit in perfectly. Especially for one of those late late night spots.
"Club d'Elf" is their name. and you can check them out, and even download some free tracks at www.clubdelf.com. They also have a new live disc coming out soon. Between the instrumentals and DJ on the tables they have some good stuff.
For a good first one check out the song "so below" under the Live @ The Lizard Lounge section. But it's all pretty crazy stuff. Just trying to spread the love. Enjoy. Peace.
I just wanted to add that I know sometimes hip hop acts don't really plan tours too far ahead, like jam bands do. Sooo... maybe dj's schedules are similar..... just wanted to spread some hope.... last minute additions in these genres are very likely!!! ;D peace.

I am very into electronic music, (downbeat, ambient, trip hop)
Kruder Dorfmiester St. Germain Ritchie Hawtin ---- if we really need some minimal beats for late night Hidden Agenda Mark Farina -- innovator, and deserves to play at bonnaroo again, i think we deserve him to play Spooky Shadow Squarepusher Aphex Twin Dj Krush
and most of all
And to whoever recommended Paul Van Dyke and Paul Oakenfold, i do not think they should even be thought about for this festival. This is not the time nor place to bring that sort of electronica in.
