I think if the bill were U2 friday, Foo Fighters saturday, and then MMJ were sunday, that's plausible. Especially if like, Drake or Deadmau5 or Pharrell are 4th on the bill to diversify things. Throw Lorde in there at 6 or 7. We all know Bonnaroo loves white guy rock.

New album looking at a possible April release. Could be perfect timing for a stop at Roo.
SIMGE: What can we expect from you and My Morning Jacket coming up next year?
JJ: We’re working on finishing up the new record, hopefully it will come out in April. Then we’re doing our One Big Holiday festival in January. Once the album comes out I’m sure we’ll be touring. So we’ll be out and about next year.
My Morning Jacket Plan a Double Surprise By Jason Newman The psychedelic-rock crew will return with two albums over the next two years My Morning Jacket have stayed relatively quiet since they released 2011's Circuital, but they're about to make up for lost time: The band is currently finishing work on two new studio albums, one due in April, the other in 2016. "I just had tons of songs this time," says frontman Jim James, checking in from the Portland, Oregon, studio where the group is mixing the first of the two LPs. "We didn't even get to all of them." Late last year, James reconvened the Jacket at a studio near San Francisco to start work on the tunes he'd stockpiled since their last album. "There was no rehearsal period," James says. "We could just jump in and start rolling tape. It was really fun." They ended up with 24 solid contenders, splitting them up into a pair of stand-alone discs, which they're still in the process of sequencing. "I love making each record sound different," he says. "I love the thrill of putting on a record and feeling like you got the wrong one from the factory." That's not all: The singer reveals that he's also begun work on a follow-up to his 2013 solo set, Regions of Light and Sound of God, which he hopes to finish in time for a 2016 release. "The Jacket is about creating a circle of power," James says. "The solo record is more of a patchwork."
With the (first) new album out in April, I'd say there's an extremely strong chance of them touring heavily throughout the Spring and Summer so I'd say it's very very likely they'll hit Bonnaroo
Even though I do not think MMJ is big enough to headline I would still take them over any of the other logical headliner options we have this year. As long as they are on the farm I don't care where they are billed.
