Of Course I'm Going To Bonnaroo: Five Reasons Why

Yesterday, I spoke about my June festival trilemma and how up-and-coming Northeast fests Firefly and Governors Ball could attract once devoted Roo-ers to shorter distances. I closed by saying unless The Beatles headlined in Manchester, you'd find me down in Delaware. As if Weird Al read my mind during his agonizing Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon (#BLAM), minutes later he revealed that the one-and-only Paul McCartney would headline the mid-June Tennessee festival.

Of course I'm still going to Bonnaroo! Who was I trying to fool?! Here are five reasons (in addition to Sir Paul's presence) why you'll find me passing through that iconic archway.

1. Mumford & Sons

These dudes played mid-afternoon two summers ago to a packed audience. I can't wait to see what they do with a headlining slot with that shimmering Grammy under their belt.


2. Alt-J

Last year's Mercury Prize winners will entrance the crowd without any need for psychedelic enhancers.


3. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes

If Bonnaroo acted a state, Alexander Ebert would be its governor.


4. Father John Misty



And Misty would be Ebert's right-hand man. You'll definitely find this guy wandering campsites at night.


5. Local Natives

These guys put on one hell of a show, and we think the cooling tendencies of Hummingbird were made for a dusty Tennessee tent.
