*Rumor* Bonnaroo '07 *Rumor*

UPDATE: The real lineup has been announced. Check it out here.

Maybe you have seen this already, maybe you have not. A lil birdie just whispered this in my ear:

The Police, Bob Dylan, and Pearl Jam have been confirmed to headline the 2007 Bonnaroo Music Festival. The lineup also includes Tom Waits, Willie Nelson, Umphrey's McGee, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, The Black Crowes, Ryan Adams, My Morning Jacket, Arcade Fire, Keller Williams Band, Hot Chip, America, TV on the Radio, Fountains of Wayne, Modest Mouse, Les Claypool, The Shins, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Toots and the Maytals, The Roots, The Decemberists, Of Montreal, Cat Power, Ozomatli, Perpetual Groove, Band of Horses, John Butler Trio, Nickel Creek, Medeski Martin and Wood, Lily Allen, Neko Case, Keiren Hedben (Four Tet) & Steve Reid, The Hold Steady, Earl Scuggs, Charlie Louvin, Man Man, Grizzly Bear, Konono #1, The Slip, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Uncle Earl, Annuals, Beirut, M. Ward, Cold War Kids, and Girl Talk. Superfly Productions plans to officially announce the lineup on January 31st.

Wow. The Police and Pearl Jam??? Insanity. Is this the year that Pearl Jam finally break down and do a festival?

And what about the rest? Moving even further away from the jam band model? This lineup had me at Man Man. Between this and Jeff's ravings about last year's fest, perhaps 2007 is the year that I finally get my ass to Tennessee.

The dates for Bonnaroo '07 are June 14-17. Early bird $125.00 tix are already sold out.

Update: The Police are headlining Coachella. And apparently Rage Against The Machine are also headlining.

Awesome lineup, but not enough to convince me to go camping with 50,000 sixteen year olds for a long weekend. I'll stick with Lollapalooza and/or ACL Fest.

Oh, and wasn't Nickel Creek supposed to be breaking up?

Nickel Creek isn't supposedly breakingup until after the festival season.

Since there the officall line up is set to be released on FEb 12, anything else is nothing more than hopes and dreams.

My line ( just as accurate as the 1st)

Jesus Christ, 50 Cent and Hendrix are the headliners Santa clause, Peter Frampton, Slater Kinny, fuck throw any band you want in it doesnt really matter
