Last year was my first Roo. And while I enjoyed it, I decided the music wasn't great enough to merit the cost and crowd. So I didn't plan to return.....but I checked the line-up just in case. WOW!!! am I glad I did!
One group - Dropkick Murphys! I also love all of the rest of the line-up. I agree that Stevie is a heck of an opportunity, whether he is "right" for Roo or not. And I also like DMB and KoL.
Sorry if it's not quite what it was. I agree Roo is what you make it, so I hope we all have a blast!

I saw the Police at Bonnaroo and it was OK. But I honestly feel I could have listened to a CD and had the same experience. Didn't see Tool and I don't feel i missed anything.
I love DMB and would go see them live at any time. But at the Roo...God I can't wait!
And Stevie Wonder will be cool. I'm stoked About Steve martin and the Steep Canyon rangers. Plus many other bands on the line up. This whole right for roo wrong for roo is roodiculous. If you don't want to go don't go. I'll have your fun for you.
The lineup is okay to me. I'm not so sure about Kings of Leon, but I may check them out. The late night this year is going to be just plain crazy. Bassnectar, Deadmau5, and Thievery Corporation!!! Not to mention Dark Side of the Moon. Night time is pretty much all I'm looking forward to. Can't wait though. I am gonna have fun regardless.
