Bonnaroo X Schedule Released Today

13 May


Finally the Bonnaroo schedule has been released! Click HERE to take a look. As expected when the schedule came out, there are  many many conflicts and overlaps with artists and set times. Of course for me there are the staple artists that are marked as must sees (Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Buffalo Springfield, Mumford & Sons, Gregg Allman, Robert Plant, G. Love, The Black Keys, Warren Haynes, etc.) and after that, time to figure out the rest. Who knows, my ideal schedule today may end up being completely different when I arrive. All I know is there is a ton of great music and I can’t wait to be surrounded by 90,000 of my new closest friends.

Bonnaroo Artist Additions

7 Apr

Today Bonnaroo announced artist additions and the comedy line-up for this summer.  I know some people were hoping for bigger names but really, you couldn’t expect more headlining acts to be announced.  Could it have been better, sure but either way I for one am stoked as two of my favorite artists we added, G.
