As Bonnaroo 2016 came to a final close, the music portion ended at a peak. After a legendary performance from Dead And Company (The Grateful Dead + John Mayer), a romantic afternoon with Father John Misty, and a good cry session with Death Cab For Cutie, what more could you ask for?
Dead And Company
I'll admit, I'm not a Dead Head. However, I fully admired this performance. Seeing the way Bob Weir and John Mayer passionately played their instruments combined with the feeling of true peace and love is what gained my respect.
Death Cab For Cutie
What better way to end a festival weekend?! A lot of people were sad that Bonnaroo was ending, and Death Cab was right there to hold them as they cried.
Father John Misty
Father John Misty is definitely in my Top 5 favorite acts of the weekend, just like he was for Governors Ball. This is a man who never fails to put on a great show -- truly an entertainer in addition to being a talented songwriter. Those two things combined result in a fan-freaking-tastic show.
Kurt Vile was one of the more chill performances I saw on Sunday, which was necessary considering how tired I was. He came on stage, chugged a beer, whipped out a banjo for a few songs, and casually talked to the crowd as if we were all good friends.
