Day 1 proved to be an amazing first day at Bonnaroo and got kicked off with a solid surprise as Feist did a sound check performance at Which Stage to prepare for her Friday gig. Full recap coming after the festival but Alabama Shakes were incredible, Rubblebucket just wow wow wow and Mariachi El Bronx were sick!
Here’s who I saw:
Impromptu set: Feist
The Dirty Guv’nahs
Mariachi El Bronx
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
Okay music fans, we are inching closer and closer to the best four days of the year, BONNAROO!! But if you can’t attend, I highly encourage you to watch the festival from the Dell Livestream at www.youtube.com/bonnaroo. Hope you are able to catch at least a handful of shows I’m excited about from the Countdown to Bonnaroo over the last 30+ days and find yourself some new bands to be grooving to. Just because you can’t be on the farm doesn’t mean you can’t experience some of the joy and excitement that will be occurring and in true Bonnaroo fashion, surprises are always bound to happen so the more you tune in, the more you can see live! The stream runs June 8-10 so check back with me after the festival to see what you missed on night one, June 7 when I’ll for sure be catching The Dirty Guv’nahs and Alabama Shakes among a handful of other talented musicians.

“I and Love and You” seriously so looking forward to hearing those words belted out by everyone at Bonnaroo. Yes, The Avett Brothers are extremely talented and yes, they have released some incredible albums but nothing compares until you have the opportunity to see them live. I remember being in awe of how amazing their live show was. Be careful of pigeonholing them as a “folk” band, these boys shred and rock out like there is no tomorrow. It is as energetic of a performance as you can get and impossible to find anyone around you without a smile on their face and dancing, jumping, singing along.
