Brad Holtz here, and it’s hard to believe it’s already June, but it’s that magical time of the year where tens of thousands of music lovers gather in rural Tennessee for the unique social experiment known as Bonnaroo. The 8th annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival kicks off Thursday afternoon in Manchester, TN. Check out the official Bonnaroo preview video.
The lineup (again) is nothing short of stellar. And the diversity is once again second-to-none. Where else can you see Phish and Snoop Dog in the same weekend? Or Public Enemy and Merle Haggard?
Laura Duncan and I are heading south this week for what will be our 6th live broadcast from Bonnaroo. We’ll broadcast Friday afternoon, and throughout Saturday (all afternoon and from 9pm-Midnight for a special Groove Show live from Bonnaroo). Tune in for backstage reports, artist interviews and exclusive performances from some of the artists playing Bonnaroo.
We welcome your comments and feedback here on the WTTS Blogaroo. And a very special thanks for some “behind-the-scenes” folks who are making the Blogaroo and live broadcasts happen: Kelly Walker, Erin Masterson, Craig Shank and George Drake. (We’ll have a few BonnaBeers for each of you).
