There truly aren't music festivals like Bonnaroo. Sure Lollapalooza and Coachella are known for being mammoths in terms of content and performances but Bonnaroo is the only festival I’ve ever been too which felt as though it had its own community that was incredibly loyal to the festival and the simple idea of having a good time.
Seeing the European festival format work in the states isn't something you could really explain without fully experiencing and witnessing it yourself. Bonnaroo has become a monumental music festival here in the states and getting to experience it for the first time is something I will truly never forget. As both a journalist and a music fan, Bonnaroo is an incredible music festival and I feel very fortunate getting to enjoy it to the lengths that I did in Manchester, Tennessee this past weekend.
This is the first year that Gigape got to cover the festival and this piece is a hub that will lead you to our coverage of the gigs with exclusive photos of each act. Be sure to enjoy and share with everyone/anyone you can.
