The War on Drugs were stupendous. Their sound was so much bigger and jammier at Bonnaroo. Same goes with Kurt Vile.
It was the first time I saw Annie Clark live, and I couldn't agree more.
Other highlights: Flying Lotus, Danny Brown, Gary Clark, Jr., The Black Lips (always).
Also caught ?uestlove's drumstick from The Roots Saturday night set. Awesome time to say the least.
I've only heard of Kurt Vile, Flying Lotus, The Roots, and The Black Lips, with the Lips being the only band I have in my collection. But considering you have pretty awesome tastes, I'm gonna have to check some of these bands out...
