the lineup is pretty cool...I HATE the name bonnaroo though.....it's really aggravating for some reason.

I also imagine it STINKS TO HIGH HELL there on day 3

If I were you this is what I would do:

Go see Les Claypool
Bring a cardboard sign that says

"My name is Winona and I have a big brown beaver!"

I've been to this boner zoo and it's a weird scene,
I'm not gonna shit on your thread here, they bring in a lot of great music and so forth - but it is a large scale corporately sponsored event with all that entails.

without getting preachy, there are a lot of festivals this summer.
