There's all this mostly-packed luggage and bags of shoes, batteries and snacks just lying around the bedroom, and in about five hours it'll be on its way to Manchester, TN for Bonnaroo with me and Plucky Megan! As I write this, Megan is still asleep, but I've been awake and running on nervous energy since early this morning. I wish you were coming with us!
If you just can't make it this year, you can still enjoy the festivities through the magical magic of Youtube. Bonnaroo's doing a livestream! That'll be neat.
If you are going to the farm, you'll definitely want to download the Bonnaroo app. There are maps, an interactive schedule, Radio Bonnaroo and other neat stuff totally relevant to your big ol' heart. The most exciting part of this updated app is the food vendor list! Mostly because I have no sense of direction and suffer from short-term memory loss. There's a quick description of what foods are being served at each stand, and! And! It even tells you where the vendor is located within Centeroo! You guys, this means I won't have to walk around for an hour looking for that one place with the mozzadillas.
Don't forget to stop by the Broo'ers Village at around 4:30pm Friday to say hi and probably get drinks and foods! I'm really excited to look at your dirty sweaty face. Really!
In addition to getting totally amped for morning yoga and air conditioned comedy, we've been trying to (loosely) plan our music schedule. This becomes a lot harder than it should be because of how much enjoyment the Bonnaroo gods apparently get from pitting one band you really wanna see against another band you really, really wanna see. There are also a ton of bands I don't know anything about. I feel like you probably have some strong feelings about which bands would be on your schedule. Wanna share them in the comments? Please do! I need your help.
Ok I'm off to get the essential last-minute items -- beer, dry ice, ponchos and cowboy hats. For some reason I feel really anxious about where we'll be camping this year. Cross your fingers for me? Oh yay Megan's awake!
