Bonnaroo Rumors as of January 30th 2012

We had a wildly popular Bonnaroo Rumors post that we published back in November laying out the ground work for the rumor mill to start swirling about this year’s Roo.  We had to append an update after The Beach Boys announced a reunion tour.  Then things really started to heat up after Coachella announced their line up.  The Nashville Cream got into the guessing game a couple of weeks ago, and dropped the hints that all but confirmed Radiohead and Red Hot Chili Pepper headlining slots.

We’ve kept at it, and have been compiling a list of who’s in and who’s out at this year’s Roo.  You can find the source for a lot of these rumors over at Inforoo.com.  Only a couple more weeks to think about it until the official announcement on (what is also rumored on Inforoo) February 14th.
