    bonnaroo is insane, almost everyone is on drugs, mainly acid n shrooms and most hiphop fans from my experience dont really fall into that category, none the less im waiting for the rock the bells lineup, now thats a festival for the hiphop heads!

      Nice post from Gorilla Union (The company that puts on Rock the Bells). I've been to Bonaroo many times and have been to Rock the Bells. Bonarrroo is a music festival for music lovers. If you can't do it live you probably won't play. It's on a really dope property with easy access to everything you need (food, drank, bathrooms, weed etc). No negativity at all. Classic hip hop shit has gone down there over the years with everyone knowing the words to every line. Don't believe me? Watch the you tube performances from the urban artists this year and you will see the same shit. Thank god other festivals are supporting urban music. If they werent than you would be complaing about that. Now get back to your online street team job at gorilla union and go shit on something else.

    haaha dumbasses (I'm assuming more will post obviously) saying this ISN'T a dope lineup?!?! everybody on that list is really really fucking good at what they do. of course, I'd only be interested in the R&B (word to Kells!!) and the rap (King Kendrick, Big K.R.I.T., Bronson, fuckin WU-TANG), but so what? the only question is why the fuck can't they do all of this.... and just replace it to new york city? tennessee? kind of a "wtf" to a Manhattan-dweller. hey, we all have our biases. :)

    Action Bronson... To bad I live in Philly and don't think it's worth traveling to (as a hip hop head anyways).

    What a joke. Have fun having your money ripped from your pockets for a queer festival.
