This years Roo logo, color scheme, and such looks 100% better than 2013. Doubt they can top Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Gov’t Mule, David Byrne, Jim James/Jim James Super Jam…but I’m sure it will be an amazing time. Hope I can make it again this year!

Don’t forget about the Lettuce hip hop super jam and the Del McCoury and Sam Bush shows from last year… Shit was ridiculous
