Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival
Concertgoers gear up for the benchmark summer festival, set to kick off in just one day.
Attention festival fanatics! The final hour is nigh; the 2007 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will commence in just one day! Finally, the engorged anticipation of performances from the Police, Wilco, Tool, White Stripes, Flaming Lips, Feist, Dr. Dog, Girl Talk, and Franz Ferdinand, among many, many others, will be allayed as fans descend upon the lush, grassy farmlands of Manchester, TN and soak up sets from a smorgasbord of acts offering searing rock to noodling jams, techno freak outs to laugh out loud comedic performances. In preparation, imminent festival attendees, jealous bloggers, and industry insiders are packing their bags, mulling over the potential accessories of an award winning campsite, exploring festival performers’ tunes, and heading down south by train, plane, and automobile. But one topic of note: the festival’s weather forecast. Today’s five-day outlook calls for a mix bag of rain, sun, and, of course, southern humidity and heat — pack accordingly and we’ll see you in Tennessee!
Beginning today (June 13), be sure to check in with SPIN.com throughout the festival for complete Bonnaroo 2007 coverage, including live reviews, video interviews, and much, much more.
