The 16 hour drive from Connecticut to Tennessee isn’t that bad when you’re headed towards a weekend of live music and camping. The grueling 16 hour drive back is not how I’d particularly like to end my third trip to the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, but we had to get home somehow!
This year we had the most perfect camping spot a girl could ever want! Going RV-less for our third bout at the Manchester festival, we were within 5 minutes of the main Centeroo entrance, a minute walk from showers, ice and a stretch of food and beer. We also had some real friendly neighbors, although we left without being able to say goodbye, which really bothers me.
Here are some photos I snapped. If you’ve never been to Bonnaroo, plan it out for you and some friends next year. No matter what you’re looking for, this festival has it. With over 85,000 in attendance, there is never any problem. Everyone is so nice. Except that our neighbors’ chairs got stolen the first day. Who does that…
There’s always music to fit someone’s interests. I saw Elton John, Die Antwoord and Vampire Weekend… none of them similar in the least. And maybe if sweating in the southern sun isn’t for you, remember there are showers, shade tents and lots of positives that offset the permanent layer of sweat you will be covered in all day.
