Taking a further look at the Bonnaroo 2012 lineup

16 Feb

As everyone knows, the Bonnaroo lineup was released earlier this week and all I can keep thinking about is, will June 7 just get here already?!

So in anticipation, I put some of my thoughts together on the lineup.  I’m also amazed at how many of the bands I’ve actually seen live before.

  • Radiohead – never been a big fan of them (a little shocker, I know) but seeing them in the middle of nowhere should be awesome
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – yes, yes, yes! If you’ve ever been to a RHCP show you know what I’m talking about
  • Phish – been a while since I’ve seen them live, can’t wait (Bart Scott voice)

  • The Shins – yes! Catching them this spring too!
  • Foster The People – seen them way too many times in the last 12 months and thrilled to see them getting bigger and bigger
  • Skrillex – just doesn’t fit in Bonnaroo if you ask me but I’m sure the kids will be going crazy
