    I'm going for The Mars Volta, Gogol Bordello, MGMT, Beck, the Raconteurs, and Band of Horses. Anyone else going?

    Same price for everyone.

    As for ACL, I plan on seeing

    Foo Fighters
    Manu Chao
    N.E.R.D.
    Silversun Pickups
    The Black Keys
    Slightly Stoopid
    Blues Traveler
    Octupus Project
    Asleep at the Wheel
    The Freddy Jones Band

    The lineup this year looks better then it's been in a few years, so I'm excited.

    If by stoner rock music you mean Jam Bands check out Rothbury or 10,000 lakes festival. I'm hoping to hit up one of those two this year but after Bonnaroo I don't think I'll have enough money for anymore festivals this year.

    Not jam bands but stoner rock like Fu Manchu, Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Colour Haze, exc.....

    I didn't get to make it to Bonnaroo this year but definitely going next year.

    there actually have been a few...namely Emissions from the Monolith, which I don't think is around anymore.
    And Stoner Hands of Doom is still going on every year, I think...but it seems like they change the location every year.
