Do people think 2016 was appreciably better than 17/18 because of LCD and Dead and Co alone because ngl when I saw that lineup when it leaked on the app I thought it was total trash and I was incredibly let down.
That was the first "really bad" year. So the shock was a lot worse. Plus it was the 15th anniversary, first year they made us pay for car passes, the lineup leaked, and that initial poster looked like trash. There were also so many other festivals that had better lineups that year. But yeah I'd still put it ahead of 2017 and just barely ahead of 2018.

2016 was the beginning of the end, but it looks like fucking Woodstock next to 2018. 2018 is, without question, the shittiest Bonnaroo lineup in its almost two decades of existence. I wouldn't have bought a day pass even if I lived in Nashville.
21/12 - Elton John 31/01 - Fatboy Slim 16/02 - Fire Fight Australia (Queen, Alice Cooper, Daryl Braithwaite, Olivia Newton-John, Peking Duk, etc.) 24/03 - The National (happy birthday to meeeee!) 16/04 - Patti Smith damn bats.

16 was a stunning drop from 14 and 15 but way better than 17-18. My LCD moment alone was more impactful and than the full 17-18 fests. That Saturday was the first Roo day where I was like holy shit this is bad, but all the other days were really strong.
Sunday was perfect Roo wind down with Dead, Death Cab, Ween, Charles Bradley, Jason Isbell, Father John Misty, Kurt Vile, Bluegrass Jam, Cymande, Lettuce, Sam Bush, Wood Brothers.. I'm just listing off this while Sunday lineup almost I don't get why people think this was a bad Roo Sunday. It's definitely lowkey, but its what I want out of the last of 4 grueling days.
The best possible thing you could do on Saturday if the storm didn't happen was Chicano Batman > Chris Stapleton (or Natalie Prass) > Steve Gunn / Band of Horses > Nathaniel Rateliff > The Claypool Lennon Delirium > Pearl Jam > Miguel > Big Grams.
