Damn, I didn't even know until recently that additions were made after the initial Bonnaroo lineup! EVERYTHING about this is getting better and better! *Wants to leave class and go practice putting tent up in record time.*

^I could live with that.
HOWEVER, I can't see My Morning Jacket opening up for Pearl Jam, b/c they did that at Lollapalooza just LAST YEAR, and Bonnaroo has been known to try to diversify itself from the other competing festivals by trying different things. They don't want to be labled Lolla 07 part 2. For this reason and this reason alone, I think MMJ, if on the mainstage, is either pre-Jack or pre-Metallica, OR they will be late night which stage.
In my mind, those are the only 3 places they fit.
Kanye IMO has the second stage Sunday (White Stripes spot last year) locked. That being said, Plant and Krauss are on Sunday as well. With Jack being mellow music, I see P&K a perfect fit right before him.
Plus if they don't play that spot, where does that leave them to go? P&K are far too big for a tent, and I don't see them playing anything earlier than preheadliner.
Actually I just saw on Pollstar that Kanye West is playing Thursday night. Wonder if he's the "headliner" for Thursday?

in 05 modest mouse was a late addition.. in 06 deathcab was a late addition.. the roots were leaked early as were a few other bands in 07.. I have a feeling they may have a decent second tier band waiting to announce.. if not a few.

Going back to the radio clues, I'm going to guess Cake and Nada Surf will be announced either tomorrow or Thursday, possibly even Counting Crows. I personally would also like to see at least 1 DJ or electronic artist.

Counting Crows are out. I really wanted them, but they are doing three Dutch festivals in June. Based on the updated artist pages, I would say that we are getting some combination of the following artists:
The Bad Plus moe. Beth Orton Patti Smith ALO Brett Dennen Mike Doughty Cracker Ani DiFranco
