I just can’t describe it all

I went to Bonnaroo. I left on Thursday at about 1PM and I got home late Sunday night/early Monday morning. Other than that, its hard to tell you what happened. I saw a LOT of bands. I saw a LOT of people. I walked a LOT and sweat a LOT. But as I was discussing with a friend, you just can’t explain it. I know I can’t.

In no order, here are some of the shows I saw some or all of:

  • The Black Angels
  • The Little Ones
  • Mute Math
  • The National
  • Rodrigo y Gabriela
  • Smokin’ Dave and the Premo Dopes
  • The Richard Thompson Band
  • Tortoise
  • Gillian Welch
  • Dierks Bentley
  • The Roots
  • Lily Allen
  • Angel and the Love Mongers
  • Tool
  • The String Cheese Incident w/ Keller Williams
  • Regina Spektor
  • Manchester Orchestra
  • Ziggy Marley
  • The Hold Steady
  • North Mississippi Allstars
  • The Biscuit Burners
  • Franz Ferdinand
  • Ween
  • The Police
  • The Flaming Lips
  • Mavis Staples
  • David Bromberg and Angel Band
  • T Bone Burnett
  • Charlie Louvin
  • Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys
  • Wilco
  • The White Stripes

The thing is this. Bonnaroo is about so much more than the music. Its the atmosphere. Its the people. Its the conversations you have with strangers. Its the things you see that you don’t see anywhere else. Its the feeling you get from being a part of something great. Its such an amazing thing that the amazing and wonderful music that you have an opportunity to see, actually becomes secondary to the experience of being there.
