With Bonnaroo '08 less than one week from kicking off, we here at SPIN.com are digging out our tents, sunscreen, and die-hard festival 'tudes to hit this year's installment with full force, bringing those at home complete coverage of the festival's awesome lineup.

And while we wait to board our trains, planes, and automobiles for the trip down south, highlights from last year's festival are in constant rotation at Spin HQ. Among them, a video interview with soulful tunesmith and Bonnaroo mainstay, Ben Harper.

Watch video of our Peter Gaston gabbing with Harper -- who had just wrapped a photo shoot for Spin's September issue -- on the splendors of Bonnaroo, jamming onstage with Pearl Jam, and his true passion, playing eclectic instruments.
