I want to see every band on Rosko's Friday/Saturday late night shows. I could see it happening that way too.. bonnaroo seems to have some years where everything I would want to see late is late night and then years where very little bands I would choose are.

Honestly Rosko, I really think your first mock-up was better. I like the rap tent on Thursday and think its pretty likely.
I'd change late nights around a little and I'd probably move the bluegrass tent from Sunday to Friday or Saturday, but other than that I thought your first one kicked ass. ZZ Top and Gov't Mule is a minor quibble.

Rosko's Friday late nights are kinda boring for me. I would catch R. Kelly then The xx, but for me that's nothing compared to Black Star into Flying Lotus last year. That's just my opinion though, no hate. I kind of want Alt-J, Paper Diamond, and Japandroids to close out the Thursday tents. Saturday looks lovely though minus the Wu-Tang/Jim James/Beach House conflict... Late night Saturday would be too ridiculous for me. I'd definitely catch Animal Collective for my last late night show of the weekend.

Rosko solid mock however can I make a few respectful suggestions based on historical bonnaroo trends. On Thursday I highly doubt Lee Mayfields will be performing that day he is too a classic artist who will most likely be the first act on the mainstage on either fri/sat/sun or get a decent slot in a tent. On Saturday you have Patrick Watson opening mainstage his sound is too mellow for the mainstage way more suitable for a tent opening or 2nd slot of the day. I think Dwight yoakam might open a mainstage either fri/sat/sun or be a 2nd slot mainstage act. I think the bluegrass tent on sunday will actually either be fri but probably sat due to historcial trends roo likes to do most bluegrass early in the weekend not in the latter part of the weekend when people might leave. Also will probably be in the Other tent its the smallest tent bluegrass is popular but when it comes to pre headliners there are more popular acts which draw bigger crowds to the this and that tents.

Son of a biznatch on the Dirty Projectors! I was having trouble wrapping my head around leaving space for additions when we have so many names already. DP and Clockwork slipped through the cracks. Still, that fix is coming up!
With the way a 4:15-4:30-4:45 time slot goes, leaving one blank sort of felt like leaving 30 minutes open. But every additional space just adds 15 minutes. Does that make sense? Still, I should have less space between the late nights.
Wasn't sure how else to upload this, but this is my crack at it with the knowledge we have so far.
Also, this took way longer then I expected/care to admit
Solid mock, but no way Paul gets a 2-hour time slot. They're going to give him all the time he needs to play all the songs he wants. He may not play for three hours, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's the amount of time he's given just in case. Hell, didn't they give Bruce three-and-a-half hours when he headlined?
I'm not sure where you put them, but I feel that the xx is a little too big for a tent. Could they do like 12-1:15 LN Which before R. Kelly?
They've never done two LNs on Which...I suppose it's possible, but if they do it, I see it being Wu-Tang>R. Kelly on Which. The xx is not too big for a tent if it's a late night; LCD Soundsystem played a LN tent in 2010 and I think they were like 15th on the bill or something.
EDIT: Just checked, LCD was 16th in 2010. The xx is 14th. Totally within the realm of possibility, and with R. Kelly, Wu-Tang, and Pretty Lights already being on the bill (and all above The xx), I don't see The xx getting a LN Which. If anything, The xx will close Which before Paul, but I see that honor going to Passion Pit.
Just a couple thoughts: CPK and Alberto- both of you have an hour gap between Mumford and Bjork where there's absolutely no music.. this seems a little bit odd to me and I don't really see that happening. Alberto, I think you're spot on with the Bluegrass tent sunday from what confirmations we have. Father John is confirmed for Thursday since he has other shows the rest of the weekend. Out of personal preference I hope to God that the Friday doesn't get scheduled like that.. choosing between the acts that play from 3-9 would be my nightmare. CPK, I believe someone posted an article in which Walk the Moon mentioned they're playing after sunset, but didn't mention a date or whether they're late night.. Also, I'd be surprised if Matt & Kim were given a daytime tent, only because that's where they played in 2011 and it seems like Roo likes to move their artists around. The unopposed Wu-Tang on sunday seems out of place as well, but I guess you never know! Otherwise, nicely done!
