Bonnaroo tickets went on sale this Saturday (the second attempt, after hundreds of eager fans crashed the website on February 18th), and while I haven’t purchased mine–yet–I’ve been obsessively stalking the ‘Roo website, photos, and spotify playlist for weeks. Check out the 2012 line up:
Absolutely ecstatic about Bon Iver, The Shins, Foster the People, Dispatch, Grouplove, The Kooks, Phantogram, Flying Lotus, Das Racist, and of course the Beach Boys!!! Word on the street is they’ll probably be throwing in another headliner and several other performers in the weeks to come.
I’m still working on convincing my friends to get on board for the ticket fare (can’t put a price on experience!) and 16 hour road trip to Nashville… But in the meantime, here are some pics from the 2011 festy, how can you say no?
oh, you thought your carnival days were over?
