Sunday at Bonnaroo is always a bittersweet day.
By Sunday the effects of the heat, not showering and all the fun start to take a bit of a toll on both mind and body. On the one hand, you never want to leave because the farm is such a magical place. But, on the other, nothing sounds better than the comfort of your own bed—a real bed—air conditioning and a nice long shower.
One thing that never fails to remain consistent about the ‘Roo is that, no matter if you’re a Bonnaroo pro or if it’s your first time, you’ll always see and hear things you never imagined, and your expectations will always be blown out of the water.
Just because the festival was coming to a close certainly didn’t mean the music had dropped of any. Sunday’s lineup was spectacular. We witnessed everything from Railroad Earth, G. Love & Special Sauce, The Apache Relay, Amos Lee, Neon Trees and Galactic to Gregg Allman, Superjam (featuring Dan Auerbach and Dr. John), The Strokes, Robert Plant and the Band of Joy. And closing down the festival was Widespread Panic. Bonnaroo patrons pushed through their exhaustion and came out to support their favorite bands for one last day.
The best part of our day was actually something that occurred back in the press tent after an interview. We were fortunate to sit down and catch up with The Apache Relay for a few minutes, and afterwards they were kind enough to play an acoustic song for us (we’ll be sharing this with you soon!)
Another year down, and only 365 days to go until we can do it all over again. Many memories were made this year with lots of wonderful people, good vibes and simply great music.
Happy 10-year anniversary Bonnaroo! Cheers to you!
