Highlights from Bonnaroo

Bonnaroo is a mainstay of music festival culture, especially in the South. This four-day gathering in Tennessee of hippies and young folk and artists and musicians is a celebration of life and summer. It’s the kind of festival where you feel alive, and you are glad to be in nature. There is something very serene about the countryside setting of Bonnaroo, even when it is filled with crowds. Evenings take on a mystical dimension, and the great live music brings a lot of magic, too. This year’s lineup included such heavyweights as Kendrick Lamar, Florence and the Machine, Billy Joel, Bassnectar, Flume, Hozier, and many more. There were also a wide variety of fun activities, including at 5K run, a comedy stage, yoga, meditation, a silent disco, a ferris wheel, and more than 25 craft breweries exhibiting their wares. These photos show the highlights of the festival, from the beautiful scenery, to the beautiful young people, to the excellent musical performances.
