Friyay was our first full day on the farm and it was PACKED with epic activities! We started the day with our broadcast from the media center. (Here’s me looking super busy and important.)
Manchester Orchestra discussed the softer more mature sound of their latest record (post-babies for two band members!), the single that literally JUST dropped 3 hours before our interview, and how they still have their first Bonnaroo parking pass! Full interview here!
Manchester Orchestra took the ‘Which Stage’ 5:15p after our interview and rocked our faces off. I also found this badass pregnant af friend in the crowd and a dabbing Santa! Full gallery from their set here!
The Revivalists and I chatted about the wild success of ‘Wish I Knew You’ and they clued me into a new single and album coming soon! Hear that interview here!
They then claimed ‘Which Stage’ at 7:15p and it was an absolutely insane set. Like…sax to the face insane. See all the pictures here!
At this point I needed a break to catch some Roo snacks and V I E W S.
PARAMORE THOUGH!! Paramore performed on ‘What Stage’ last night and I re-lived my NBT 2017 dreams!! They were just as awesome as ever and Hayley Williams really opened up to the crowd. She talked about writing After Laughter during one of the darkest parts of her life was probably the best decision she made. She explained that if you’re going to face those issues ‘you might as well do it singing and dancing’. Yes. I cried real tears at that point.
We took a campsite break to refresh via baby wipes and closed out the night with Muse and Bassnectar which were both unbelievable of course. That was my first full on glow stick throwing/laser beam flashing Bassnectar experience and well…it’s quite an experience.
Back in the broadcast center this morning (Saturday) and have interviews lined up with LANY, Mikky Echo, Matt Schultz from Cage The Elephant, and Sir Sly!!
First though, breakfast tacos.
One giant bag of Doritos, 2 pit stops, and 10 hours in the car later, we arrived in Manchester Tennessee for Bonnaroo 2018!!
First stop of course was to get suited up with our wrist bands, they become your literal LIFE LINE. Then of course the camping setup struggle happened. I was quite proud of the luxurious tent I assembled.
WE OUT HERE.
Had to get tatted up of course.
After that it was straight over to the broadcast center for an interview. This is Jade Bird, she’s an incredible up an coming artist with an insane story. Traveled most of her life and started writing music and playing playing gigs in South Wales at 14! Her music has unique sound and powerful lyrics. What I love is that it crosses almost all genres too. Of course died for her floral onesie. Check out our full interview!
We then had to go explore the farm! Stopped at the silent disco which was an INCREDIBLE experience. Imagine a bunch of people jamming and twerking in complete silence with head phones on. Yeah. Walked by some weird BBQ place that had a giant flaming pig. Oh, and vegan corn dogs happened. Hipster AF.
What’s amazing about Bonnaroo is the random stuff you are constantly running into. Like a free crawfish boil? WHAT?
Before calling it a night we headed back to Centeroo (that’s what they call the main area with all the stages) to see Frenship and Flor perform. I’m SO glad we did because that’s where the absolute highlight of my night happened. We are just standing in the crowd and I hear “Sam from 97x??” I turned my head and yelled “SHUT UP!” because I had literally been
s h o o k.
You don’t expect to run into 97X Tampa Bay family members all the way up here! And at a HUGE festival?! This is Raoul and Juan and they were awesome!!
Well, I’m currently writing this from the broadcast center where we are LIVE 10a-3p today (Friday) and tomorrow! Later this afternoon I’ll be interviewing Manchester Orchestra and The Revivalists so be on the lookout for those! We’ll also talk to Sir Sly, LANY, and Mikky Echo this weekend! Everything will be posted here. Thanks for following our adventure on the farm!
