Playlist: Bonnaroo Days And Nights 2013

Note from Laneia: In a couple of days we’ll be on the farm in Manchester, covered in sunscreen and wristbands and probably standing in line for beer/samosas. This will be my fourth trip to Bonnaroo for Autostraddle and if you’re going too, I’ll have meetup info for you in another post! Here’s Morgan with another perfect set of playlists to get you ready for Roo, or maybe just ready for daydreaming.

In Tennessee, you wake with the sun because you don’t really have a choice. The day starts at daybreak whether you like it or not, so drink a little coffee and a lot of water and take a hard look at your schedule. Don’t miss anything.

Dusk to Dawn


The sun’s going down and it’s time to wipe off your dustache and prepare to be lost all night. You are never too tired. Take a breather on a hay bale and get your second, third, and maybe fourth wind. You can do this.
