Bonnaroo 2019 Roundup ~~ In case you missed it…

MUSIC FESTIVALS ARE DIFFERENT from other varieties of escape in that they provide a space for the real self to shine through. Free from the banal shackles of rules, obligations, expectations, and judgments, raw essence and creativity is allowed to flourish. What does that look like, you ask? Well, that depends…

Sometimes, it looks like asking a total stranger to read a bestselling erotic masterpiece to you out loud in the middle of a bass-funk revival hoedown.

Or maybe it looks like having your naughty book-reading performance interrupted by the only guy in the crowd doing something even weirder, strolling right past you like it ain’t no thing…

The removal of life’s boundaries doesn’t necessarily have to compel you to wacky antics, however. Quite the contrary, on a magical farm in the middle of nowhere, there is room for the entire spectrum of human personality to spread its wings and embrace itself exactly in its natural state of colorful, collaborative harmony.

You may find that this very special phenomenon — the collaborative nature of collective self-expression found at a magical place like Bonnaroo — leads to a blossoming of creativity that is greater than the sum of its parts. The people around you warmly and earnestly help you along to become an even greater, more fantastic version of your real self than you ever thought possible.

A new friend might turn you into a walking work of art…

Or a total stranger might hand you a gift at the perfect time…

You just might find that the 3:00 AM latenight set is even more lit than you are… or at least, the stage is.

Life is beautiful and meant to be experienced. We are here to make each other happy. Bonnaroo is a place that pours these remarkable truths over your head like a bucket full of cool, refreshing water.
