This past year at Bonnaroo was one of the best ones yet. If you don't know me (or follow me on any form of social media), my whole family -- mom, dad, sister -- goes to Bonnaroo each year. This was our third year attending this incredible festival and we had a spectacular time, though the feel was a little different than years past. The schedule was changed to accommodate what felt like two headliners each night, rather than one solid one. It made things a little confusing, but also led us to go to more late-night shows at the smaller stages.
This was also the first year that the headliners overall just weren't very appealing to us. After living in New York for almost a year before the festival and diving into the indie-rock world, I came with a little more background than I had before. I had a solid idea of who would be the best performers (Mac DeMarco, The Districts, Temples, Courtney Barnett) and really wanted the chance to see newer performers who I had yet to see in the city (Glass Animals, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard). I also had the chance to see some bands I may never have the chance to see again (Earth, Wind & Fire, Belle & Sebastian, Billy Joel). Overall, it was an incredible 4 days and I am already wishing it was June again.
Here are some of my favorite photos I took while at Bonnaroo. Enjoy! (Most of them are of my beautiful sister).
