this is hands down the worst schedule for bonnaroo I’ve ever seen. the late night shows are brutal and the day time shows are just plain boring. I wish I didn’t waste my money on this ticket. bonnaroo take notice of this joke and correct it for next year. sbtrkt daytime and unchained latenight?, is this a cruel joke?

Agreed. Not to mention the epic conflict Sunday afternoon into evening. Maybe they loaded Sunday with top acts to keep people there? For the money? I plan on staying late for Phish anyways, but the Sunday schedule blows.

 Can i buy your ticket? This is hands down the best schedule i’ve seen, and ive been to them all.  I offer you 10 bucks, your apparent value of the ticket.
