8 PM Update: We just got the official press release, and everything you’ve heard today is correct. One thing we can add: The comedians are back, and Bonnaroo 2007 will feature Lewis Black & Friends, Dave Attell and David Cross.
Props to PT user jtr210 and the BonnarooDetective for discovering a link (since removed) to the 2007 Bonnaroo Lineup, which will be formally announced some time tomorrow. While we don’t have specific confirmation on each one of these bands, we just noticed our friends at the Live Music Blog are running with this as well. So if we go down, we all go down together. Take this for what it’s worth…

Will this be the first year a member of Phish doesn’t perform at the festival? Doubtful. Does this lineup interest you? Let us know below….
That lineup looks really fucking solid…if it weren’t in the middle of nowhere in the sticky weather of Tennessee in June, I’d probably be there. As is, I’ll be on my couch watching the AT&T Blue Room feed and feeding myself grapes.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!
i would fucking piss my pants.
I can’t wait to watch a whole set of the police from my couch!!!
Thank you AT&T Blue Room for allowing me to be super lazy!
im not diggin the lineup for the most part. police suck. i like tool and flaming lips but i expected more from bonnaroo. ill be there crappy lineup or not. i hope this lineup IS a rumor though, or they at least add more to it (moe., gomez, trey).
i hope Hot Chip’s bassist is there, because if it’s a fill in bassist, I am not going.
speaking of chips, can we all chip in and buy govt mule a melody?
I can’t wait to read their book “how a crappy less than avg bar band became popular by playing really boring solos”
widespread is gonna rock!
police- anyone smell lute solo?
brazilian girls(lead singer)/feist- can i get front row please
manu chao- bingo bango bongo, awesome
does martha wainwright have to use that language?
get well trey, see you next year
where is emmy lou/mark knopfler, someone send an invitation!
where is neko? can i have front row please!
someone invite Breakestra, sharon jones, and chuck berry!
so i take it the hanson reunion show at bonarroo was just internet rumor?
– – –
You must be as bored as Andy Summers, Art.
i guess somebody will have to email Trey and tell him that Roo had to replace him with the godawful Staceys Mom group.
im a govt “worker,” i have already been around the internet twice today
NO WAY!!! Keller Williams AND Spearhead? Together? AT THE SAME FESTIVAL???
Is it some kind of codified law that says that they have to perform at every summer festival? Or do they just both cost like 12 bucks? I swear I saw them at the Bergen County Renaissance Faire last summer. And how many dates does Keller Williams play a year? 512? 832? I know it’s a rock’n’roll cliche, but I ask in all seriousness: Does he even have a home?
There are actually quite a few repeats from past Bonnaroos. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’d be interested to see how things go now that they own the land. I was there in 04 and 05 in a RV. I felt like a sellout sitting in the AC, taking rips, and watching The Big Lebowski on the VCR. Then again, I felt like a comfortable, clean, non-smelly sellout. If you do go, and you can swing it, the RV is choice.
(insert Deiter voice) your Keller Williams story has become tiresome
lol @ that Stacey’s Mom joke
Lineup looks sick. I have to convince myself now that I’d rather be studying for the bar come mid-June.
The White Stripes are fucking back which is enough, in my mind, to make this the year of my triumphant return to B-roo.
Pretty solid, with a shit ton of bands I’d go see on their own. In fact, that’s the real trick, isn’t it? There’s a bunch of bands I’d (we’d) go see and for me not many that I wouldn’t. (Except for Hot Tuna, Fountains of Wayne and RR Earth, that is.)
The trick is the scheduling. It always kills you. “Ok, we’ll go catch the first half of the Allmans, then bump over to [Band]” and then you end up punching your friend in the face on the way to the other stage because you just swam threw a crowd of 40,000 people and then one of your buddies sends you a text message saying, “Dude, you’re missing it. They’re playing the night they drove old dixie down. You left one song too soon” and you’re all, “Why did we leave The Allmans?!” and your friend’s all, “What? The Allmans are playing? Dude, I’m really stoned right now. You shouldn’t have listened to me. What day is it?”
I mean seriously, Bonnaroo, we get it. You booked 100 awesome bands. At least have the common curtesy to schedule them so I can catch all of them. And give me a reach around while you’re at it.
Does that band listing mean Tool is headlining one night?
Solid indeed…there’s no way in hell I’m going, but I think it’s one of the better well-rounded lineups in its history. Good to see Tea Leaf Green on there, too.
YAHHHHH Ben harper is the shit…..ohh yah man Cross your fingers for life and count man…HARPER live with someone like me man YAHHHH
