Bonnaroo: Day 1

The 2008 Bonnaroo music festival kicked off Thursday night with probably the best line up they have every had on the first night. Even with only selling around 55,000 tickets this year for the Bonnaroo event, “This Tent” was packed for these opening indie shows. The night started off with MGMT playing to be one the first sets at Bonnaroo. After an energizing set by MGMT brought people to the stage, more Bonnaroo fans flocked the stage for Battles. Battles were probably my main reason for wanting to do Bonnaroo coverage in 90 degree weather. They definitely proved to be worth the sweat. The last show I was able to make it to that night would be Vampire Weekend. Their happy vibes put me in the perfect mood to pass out my campsite.

Wondering how people make it though these four days at Bonnaroo? Here is an example of how people stay cool, not clean at Bonnaroo. The Bonnaroo fountain was closed for most of Thursday, but was later opened for the late night sweaty fans.

If you have every been a part of the Bonnaroo experience, then you are probably seen the rangers on horses wandering around. Here is some advice from the Bonnaroo rangers themselves.
