The lineup is great but if i make the trek from NY it will mostly to see Pgroove in a festival setting. Love those guys and they never seem to make it to any festi's up north (i.e summercamp, moe.down, rothbury, mountain jam) The Ozark Mts are a beauitful place too makes it quite tempting!

Warren Haynes might not have the chops of Neil Diamond, Royce, but I think he can still rip a chord or two. And don't hate on the Mule. Nobody wins when you hate on the mule. This lineup is stacked. I would totally rock Waka myself, but I've got those damn LSATs that Monday...weak sauce. Have fun, fellers.

I am so amused by the festival bashing on here. Is it really a competition? I'll be going to Bonnaroo for the 5th time this year because the lineup suits my tastes, which was not the case for Roo last year. I'm sure Wakarusa will be a complete blast and everyone will have a great time, just like we will at Bonnaroo, just like folks will at Lolla and all the other fests. I'm really glad that everyone on earth has different music tastes or else we wouldn't have such an amazingly wide range of artists and fests to choose from. Long live the freedom to listen to whatever music you like, and attend whatever fests you like. And to those of you who feel the need to bash Bonnaroo or any other fest, please read this quote and think about what you are saying: "waka is gonna straight up rape bonnaroo" - BourbonTide what?

Dparris1- Just for the record, we'll be seeing 3 sets of Phish at Bonnaroo, one of which will be a late night, so in my book that's equivalent to 4 regular sets b/c there is something magical about a late night set. And for the other record, although I only paid $240, even if I had paid $300, still probably less than a lot of people are paying to see Phish 2 nights at other venues (based on the way scalpers are charging). And the rest of the line up may suck to you, but I'm stooookkkked.

hawcarl it's how i talk lol. been to bonnaroo, and it's a hot, sweaty clusterfuck. some of the crowd sucks. stuck up and whatnot "blah, bonnaroo, blah blah" bonnaroo has had some stellar lineups, but this year it's gonna be a whole mess of 70000 phish fans in 100 degree heat; the smell of dirty pits and boiling patchouli is already making me gag. it's good to see these "type twos" drop a lineup that makes bonnaroo jealous. Rothbury stole the show last year, prob will again this year, especially if they get mmjacket (roo! GIVE EM A HEADLINER SLOT ALREADY)...major mistake booking two nights of phish, one night wouldve done the trick...and they'll pay for it when waka gets rave reviews the week before, and roo doesn't quite live up to expectations. they let me down with the lineup, so imma bash em.

Ive never seen so much electrionic goodness next to so much rockin goodness. Finally I don't have to leave 1/2 of my music lovin brain at home. Left side is thinking Buckethead and Les at the same festi smells like C2B3 type jammin. Right side is thinkin OTT and Shpongle at the same festi could end in some Hallucinogen in DUB. Hell we've got Jimmy and Warren, I think Phil should show up and blow my mind one last time.

-Ahh yes, while I did not get a $79 ticket, I can see it now...

Yonder from 6-8,

to Claypool w/Buckethead from 9-12,

then onto Shpongle late night 12:30-2:30

-I can also see any number of badass electronic groups

when they go head to head with G'mule, G'love, and G'Crowes.

-This will be the best of the summer (so far), but I could do with

some Bisco/Ween/Critters'/Garage/Pnuma INSTEAD of:

Gov't Mule

Black Crowes

You people need to stop bashing on Bonnaroo, for Christ sake, it's a sick fuckin line-up...I don't know how long everyone has been bitchin about waiting for Phish or some major Jamband besides Panic to play at the Fest and now that it's happening, people don't know how to do anything but bitch about it. Bonnaroo is going to be sick, sure it will be flooded with Phish Phreaks, but who cares. The rest of the lineup looks amazing and like YEMolly stated, we might've spent 250bones, but we're seeing not just Phish, but a shitload of other great amazing acts (minus the Boss) while others are spending a couple hundred on just a couple shows. So whos the for this lineup, it looks good, but sorry folks, it's not going to be better than Bonnaroo...gimme a break

Can't wait for waka-tyme. I am a little bummed because I talked to Jesse from lotus during set break in Blacksburg and he said Lotus won't be joining us on the mountain. Oh well, still is going to be awesome.

I was planning on hitting Roo but now I'm not so sure... Shpongle, Eat Static, Ott, STS9, Pgroove and a crapload of other bands I'm interested in seeing for less than half the price of Bonnaroo?!? I really may find myself in Arkansas instead in June.

Hopefully Rothbury will release their line-up soon so I can start making definite plans!!!

glad everyone's excited. this should cut down on the ticketless crusties jamming up the lots at Jones Beach - Camden.

this lineup is stacked. almost enought to pull me away from all good wich is right down the road. two questions though... do i have to worry about pigs around every corner and is the festi on private property this year?

it's on private property right off a small two lane highway in the middle of nowhere. no cops. you will be fine. just don't drive crazy.

hopefully not way too many people. harvest fest is held on the same grounds and it is a pretty small fest. i don't think the land can hold as many people as the old waka land could. let's hope they keep it small this year. big festies just aren't my thing. unless of course the lineup is as sick as rothbury's was last year...
