    I guess I have more money to burn than the rest of you folks, but I think you would have a hard time seeing so much musical talent in one weekend this year (Unless you were at the ‘roo). I notice nobody mentions Galactic, arguably one of the best bands on the lineup…..

    It’s not like you have to attend every performance on the lineup….You would be in Vegas after all……

  • It would only be better if Bis

    You people are all ridiculous, this is a very good line up. They got all the headliners from 10KL(Trey, Mike, Phil, SCI) and put them in vegas for halloween. Then you throw in Keller and MMW, who both played stellar shows at 10K. Ontop of that, you have Petty, Widespread, Yonder(who no ones mentioned so far, but who are fucking amazing), J-5(to throw all you damn hippies for a loop), G. Love, and Randolph(see, thats how you spell his name…) opening for Trey at one of the late nights. Your all fucking blind. If 10K was any indication of Vegoose, and it was since all of the headliners are there, then Vegoose will kickass. P.S. 10KL was 1000000000000000X’s better than ‘roo this year. Roo sucked the big one.

    hey i never said it wasn’t a good line up. i think it is pretty sweet. never seen galactic and they do bring the funk. my only problem is affording vegas itself. and yes, 10K was sweet this year (though trey played like 5 covers… thought that was generic)

    evertime i read comments about the festivals or shows over 50% are always people bitching about something- i just don’t get it. i love going to the festivals listening to great music (sometimes o.k. music), dancing, meeting new people, & making great memories. How can you complain about that? also, just moved to the atlanta area-any places around to hear good music?

    We all have different music tastes, so no festival line-up is going to please everyone. I prefer the positive outlook as well shara-but you ain’t gonna get it when online.

    One thing about the festival scene, as it has grown significantly since Bonnaroo 02, is there has definitley been a changing of the guard as far as the line-ups go. I remember when the 1st Bonnaroo was announced, that there wasn’t a negative reaction at the line up or a lot of scrutiny, people were just like “Whoa, This is big. I gotta be at this thing.” At that time we weren’t getting many festivals of that MAGNITUDE, especially an annual festival. There WERE other great festivals going on out there mind you, most of them more regional, for example High Sierra was in it’s 12th year in ’02, but that is a different post altogether. But since then Bonnaroo has gotten more popular, and the acts have too. Now you have bands like The Killers and Fiona playing Vegoose, and Tom Petty playing Bonnaroo and Vegoose as well.

    It drives a lot of people nuts when mainstream acts are on festival line-ups but that is just the way things are shaping up at the bigger festivals. I’ll tell you what, I’m not a fan of The Killers, but when they are playing, I’ll bet there will be something else pretty cool to see. I know people don’t like the fact that Petty is on these bills either, but he was a huge piece of the soundrack of my life growing up and it doesn’t bother me a bit. I like some of the classic rock being included.

    I’m not a fan of every band on this line-up, but call me crazy, somehow I am able to look at the festival line-up and say…groovy.

    Rock On.
