My vote is gonna be for Mimosa this year. Same dubstep style as Skrillex but a better live show from what I've seen.
Bassnectar was cool last year and so was the one during Gogol Bordello. We had a little under 1000 and that seemed to barely make a dent. We tried to do a volcano during "Start Wearing Purple" but needed atleast another 4000 to make it effective.
I hope Radiohead. Here is what Colin said about 2006.
This from Rolling Stones archives ‘Best Of Rock 2008′. The magazine looks back at one of the legendary Radiohead performances when the band played one of their longest sets of all time.
At Bonnaroo, Greenwood, singer Thom Yorke, drummer Phil Selway, and guitarists Ed O’Brien and Colin’s brother Jonny covered every extreme in their studio catalog, from the violent double-guitar clang of 1995′s The Bends to the haunted electronics of 2000′s Kid A. But it was in the fresh, unfinished songs, later cut for 2007′s In Rainbows, that Radiohead peaked that night. “In ‘House of Cards,’” Colin says, “50,000 people threw their glow sticks in the air to this kick-drum beat and Thom’s keening voice. In the film [of the concert], it looks like Thom walked into a party where he feels instantly at home.” Some new songs sounded flat at that show, Colin admits. “But isn’t that what people want to see — the next part of the story? They don’t want some prepackaged supper-club band.”
