Two summers ago I was convinced to drive 14 hours to some music festival in BFE Tennessee. Bonnaroo ended up being a highlight of that summer and possibly my life. Last summer I was moving and I didn't know anyone else going and I wasn't that thrilled about the lineup. The 2009 lineup was just announced and I'm pretty freaking excited and want to go. Now I just need to convince some more people to go. Check out the initial lineup announcement video below.
For an easier look here's the lineup list. Every time I read that list I see more to be excited about. If I tried to list my favorites I would probably list 3/4 of the list. None of the "headliners" get my attention like Police did in 2007, but then again his concert wasn't that good anyway.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday. If I can work it out with vacation and logistics, I'll be there. Let me know if you're planning on going, what you think about the 2009 lineup, and share any crazy previous music festival stories in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
