Join me at Bonnaroo as I check out a ton of awesome concerts, people, and just the generally amazing atmosphere of the festival.
Thursday I’m incredibly excited to see Cashmere Cat, who I’ve heard puts on an amazing show and enjoy the non-mainstream electronic sounds that he continues to produce.
For Friday, I’m not quite sure who I’m anticipating more, Griz or Halsey. Griz can throw down some funky sweet jams, often playing a saxophone alongside his turntables. Halsey on the other hand, has so many great and catchy songs, although she’ll probably have a much larger crowd than Griz, which will make it less of an intimate experience.
Saturday features my most anticipated electronic act of the entire festival, RL Grime, who I will definitely not be missing. I respect him not only as a producer, but also as an amazing DJ. RL Grime utilizes a 4-deck setup for all of his shows due to his history of being a DJ before he began producing music, thus creating such well put together and seamless sets, even though he generally plays a lot of hard trap.
Sunday will be a calm and relaxing day featuring the music of Father John Misty and Saint Motel, my two most anticipated acts of the day.
In addition to the music, I’ll be exploring the many other attractions such as exploring the unique areas in the main venue and the campgrounds, the comedy tent and the Silent Disco, as well as enjoying the awesome foods that can be found in the vending areas (mmmmm spicy pie and Amish doughnuts).
