And so it begins. Our journey to Bonnaroo is mere hours away; a summertime tradition unlike any other. Music, art, mud, and more music and mud. When I first went to Bonnaroo back in 2004, I thought it would be something cool to do maybe once. Six years later, and I’m back again. If you’ve never been in the middle of a 200-acre field miles from civilization with limited cell coverage (or showers), it really is something to experience. That’s just a small piece of the charm-aroo that is Bonnaroo. Oh yeah, and the festival is a collection of the best bands on Earth and has become the premiere musical event in the U.S.
So here we are, about to depart for Manchester, TN. Laura Duncan and I will broadcast live from the Bonnaroo backstage studios Friday and Saturday afternoon, complete with artist interviews, live performances and up-to-the-minute reports on the goings-on from the ‘Roo. We’re also turning the WTTS Blog into the Blogaroo (clever, huh?) – follow along for exclusive photos, interviews and fun content to keep you connected. –Brad Holtz (6/9/10)
