Did anyone else notice that COS had originally listed Dave Matthews Band in this article and then removed it? What was the deal with that?

Hi Dave – SiriusXM Radio reported over Twitter that DMB was confirmed. A lot of other publications, including Fuse and Rolling Stone were reporting similar confirmations, which led us to believe Sirius was a partner of Bonnaroo and part of the reveal. Sirius retracted their “leak” short after.

Sorry for the confusion.

Who’s gonna head the coveted Friday/Sat. night, late night show on the Where? Stage?

You mean the Which (2nd stage) right? My money’s on Pretty Lights one night. Wu Tang or Kendrick Lamar on the other.

Bjork on the main stage? or will she get a late night spot?

A late night spot would be fantastic!

I’d hope for a late night spot, but I could also see her in the Beach Boys slot from last year…Sunday afternoon on the What.

Mumford & Sons and Tom Petty blow………….as does Phoenix. It amazes me that these acts sell out stadiums and headline major music festivals. A complete joke

Tom Petty is a legend, dumbass.

bonnaroo has legends on its lineup every year, not all of them are headliners… hes more on par with a john fogerty type time slot like 2010…Also, I think there are a lot of “legends” (Springsteen, Petty, etc) that suck ass, douche

Big difference between you not liking an artist and saying they suck ass, dick. Saying Petty is on Fogerty’s level is insane.

Petty is on Fogerty’s level… Hahahahahahahahahaha. Sorry I just had to get that out. Maybe knowing something about music should be a pre requisite for comments .

Springsteen and Petty are staples of american music. They may be old but I can say from personal experience that they both still put on amazing performances. Petty is a big sing along….I dont understand how that isn’t a good time.
