We are VERY excited about this year’s Bonnaroo, lineup… if you haven’t heard of this festival yet you must be quite sheltered, Bonnaroo is perhaps the best festival in North America right now – yes, even surpassing Coachella in our eyes. The first year for Bonnaroo was in 2002 and the small town of Manchester, TN has never been the same. While many music festivals are focusing on the commerce rather than the art, Bonnaroo has always been about the music. Having attended the event in its inaugural year as well as 2003-2008 – we can safely say you will have one of the best weekends of your life if you decide to attend.
Stay tuned for much more information, updates and random postings on Bonnaroo and the acts involved. We will also be bringing you live coverage from the event including interviews with artists, fans and if all goes well even some of the locals in Manchester that welcome Bonnaroo to their hometown with open arms each summer.
