I was only able to go in 08 and 09 but if I had to pick a couple of my favorite shows from those two years it would have to be Pearl Jam and NIN. I also loved Portugal. the man's show on thursday in '09, I can't wait to see what time slot they will get at this year's Roo.
My favorites so far have been Robert Plant/Alison Kraus in 2008, JBT and Black Keys in 2010. Looking forward to adding to that list this year. Already got tix for this year and just anxiously waiting to see the line up.

I truthfully have enjoyed every show I have seen @ bonnaroo over the last 4 years, so I kind of go by favorite moments.favorite moments> Chris Rock introducing Metallica into creeping death, Springsteen doing the Santa Claus is coming to town sing along was great & Jay Z forever young with the lights down was pretty cool too, all moments I will never forget

my fav every year no headliners... 03 moe 04 xavier rudd - first time i ever saw him 05 allison krause was alright but i loved union station 06 bella fleck 07 keller 08 les 09 erykah badu/snoop 10 lcd/chromeo
I went to check out a little of Jeff Beck last year and take a few picture & stayed for the whole show. It was one of those shows where the vibes between the crowd and the band just kept growing & feeding off of each other. It was truely an unexpected magical moment. During his encore he brought vocalist Emelda May up for 2 songs and the chemistry between the two was intense. That was one show I will never forget.

David Byrne in 09, HANDS DOWN...God what a performer, he had 12 dancers up there with him, was all over the stage dancing with them, doing a lotta classic talking heads stuff, and for the encores he came out in a pink tutu...this was one of the better moments of my life
