As June approaches and more bands are set to take the stage of the tenth anniversary Bonnaroo Music Festival, I find myself contemplating whether or not I should attend. Last year was my first experience with a major music festival…one that involves three nights of camping and ridiculously miserable weather. It was AMAZING. I never thought of myself as an outdoorsy/music/hippie kind of gal who would enjoy something like this, but I did. My eyes were opened to so many different things and I saw some AMAZING shows: Stevie Wonder, Flaming Lips, Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, Jay-Z, Tenacious D, Medeski Martin and Wood John Fogerty and soo many more! The performances put on at live music events are hard to top, and Bonnaroo is no exception.
Other than the performances, being outside with ZERO amenities for four days is cleansing. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and be a part of something that brings soo many people together to share experiences that will be recalled for years to come.
If Bonnaroo isn’t your thing, at least head over to Ben and Jerrys and try the Bonnaroo Buzz ice cream. It is TO DIE FOR!
