It doesn't mean a whole lot, but Big Hassle, the same company that does publicity for Bonnaroo and several acts who play Bonnaroo, are doing publicity for Weezer's new album. In the past, this hasn't really mattered much outside of the smaller end acts who play Roo and didn't have publicity beforehand, but it's worth keeping an eye on.

My bet is on... Phish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews Band, Outkast, The Flaming Lips Maybes- The Killers, REM, John Mayer, 311, maybe even Radiohead coming back and... The Allman Brothers as not headliners
Maybe it's too early to bring the White Stripes back but they are supposedly getting back into the studio in the near future and I think they could headline Friday night.
never too early for 2007's best live band!
Ditto! I so desperately want the Stripes to come back in 2009. I've been big into them since 2001, and they've been my favorite band for about six years now... and yet, I've never seen them live. It's tragic, really. For me, The White Stripes headlining would be worth at least half the price of admission.
Unfortunately, I don't see it happening for a while. If they do return in '09, I think we'll see them as either a What Stage pre-headliner, or a Which Stage latenight.
I hate to say it, but I thought the White stripes were entirely underwhelming in 07. Maybe it's just because it was a sunday show and I was worn out, but I thought the racontuers were far better at roo than the stripes...but of course having jack white at roo leads to some awesome superjam possibilities!
they headlined in 07, when i saw em and it was quacking amazing, but idiotically, they put them on which stage in stead of what, where wilco was, at the same time and everything. TWS had a much bigger crowd from all accounts and wilco wasnt even a headliner!

DMB should be back in 09. dave and friends in 04, dmb in 05. they haven't played the farm that much when you think about it - two years with a dave presence, out of a possible 7. thats a long time without dave in any form at roo.
love him, like him or hate him, the dmb has one of the most successful tours year in and year out, for the past like 10+ years, they've been compared to a modern day grateful dead, i know their music isn't like the dead and their following isn't exactly the same, but i think we can all understand why they draw that comparison a little bit.
we need them back at bonnaroo, but since leroi's passing, god rest his soul, this will not be the same band. so i'm not sure what the touring schedule will look like next year. they're taking their "sweet time" (as dave said) on the next studio album, so when summer rolls around next year, they still might be working on the album. they're trying to gather up all of the parts leroi recorded so they can use them on the next album. on weeklydavespeak, a tracklist from the new album has surfaced, but who knows about the future of this band for sure.
HEADLINERS: from the 70's - THE BOSS from the 80's - PHISH from the 90's - DMB
