Update: The contest is over! Congratulations to @RileyJohnSavage, whose #Roo14WishList was the favorite among CoS readers.
Hundreds of you submitted your dream Bonnaroo lineups as part of our #Roo14WishList giveaway, and we learned a few things along the way. For example, many of you think Kings of Leon should headline again; Miley Cyrus is a viable Bonnaroo option; some of you have either never heard of or gotten over the “Fuck Kanye” mantra; and a few folks have no concept of how festival bookings work (U2, Bruce Springsteen, Kanye West, Arcade Fire, Radiohead, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are simply never going to be on the same bill, sorry).
But we also learned that a lot of Bonnaroovians out there have a hot creativity streak – people played Scrabble, made cakes and pizzas, even scripted an entire medieval quest with band names. That made narrowing the entries down to our favorite 10 quite a task. After sorting through the tweets, Instagrams, Vines, and YouTube videos, it’s now up to you, our readers to choose the best of the best. Take a look at all the finalists below, and cast your vote using the widget. You can also check out the thousands of other #Roo14WishList entries by heading to The Fountain section of ‘Roo’s website.
Remember what you’re voting for, kids: the winner gets a pair of VIP tickets to Bonnaroo 2014. Don’t be jealous, you had your chance. Round of applause to all who entered, and a standing ovation for our 10 finalists: YouTube users longboarderwade1, Mr Pillow Productions, Kelly Casey, Philip Hanley, and Austin H; Instagramers @cbutt0n,@rileyjohnsavage, and @redsoxfitted; and Tweeters @Sara_MRose and @Scappy23. Good luck, all!
