It looks like it could be the greatest festival lineup...well...ever? Im curious what kind of conflicts there will be between Phish, NIN, Beastie Boys, David Byrne, and Wilco. If I got to actually see all of them, that would be AMAZING.

Naw, I don't pay for Bonnaroo anymore. Even good Bonnaroos. Besides, I'm already tired of playing push the button this year.
