Forgive me if a thread has already been made in similar nature, but I have something to say. I know that message boards are the ideal place to let rumors fly, but am I the only one that is tired of hearing the same rumors over and over again? "Led zeppelin, led zeppelin, rage against the machine, metallica, ect ect." did you get that information off of the OFFICIAL Led Zeppelin website or did you hear it on your radio? did you get that information off of the OFFICIAL BONNAROO website? NO. I've been hearing the same damn rumors SINCE I LEFT BONNAROO LAST YEAR. The point here is, rumors are beginning to effect people's opinions of Bonnaroo. I have friends that "aren't going to Bonnaroo because they heard metallica was going to be there." What the hell people? Are we really believing everything we hear? LETS LET THE LINEUP SPEAK FOR ITSELF. Yeah, people are excited, but I am just SO damn tired of people saying "led zeppelin is going to be at Bonnaroo" when there is no real proof at all. I myself am a huge zeppelin fan, and for all of us to get our hopes up too soon, it will just make the end result as disappointing as ever. We all know that Bonnaroo 08' is going to be amazing, so if you "hear" something on your radio, or "see" something on the TV about Bonnaroo, and its not on the official Bonnaroo website, DON'T BELIEVE IT UNTIL ITS OFFICIAL.
That's kinda what this place is all about is discussing Bonnaroos past and future. The future one has been in information lockdown, thus the speculation.
Don't worry, if your friends are interested in the Roo lineup when it comes out they'll go. It's not like they are not going to go because they thought Metallica was performing and were wrong! And if Metallica is there, then that speculation has given them that much more time to look for a festival that's more to their taste.
wow, dont take things so seriously man. People just get excited/pissed when they hear something and tell their friends or post on this board. I think it's fun to speculate and try to guess who's playing... it makes the year go by quicker. If anyone decides not to go to bonnaroo because they heard a rumor before the line up is even announced, that's ridiculous! It's all in good fun...
Most of the rumors are coming from outside the bonnaroo community. Discussing rumors is all we have until the line up comes out. Makes the winter go quicker. If you don't like the rumors stay off the boards.

looks like half the rumors, well, were right. The Police didn't ruin last year, Metallica wont ruin this year. Be easy people, music is music is music. let the metalheads bang for an hour or two, who does it hurt.
