10th Bonnaroo Festival, The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival began its 10th year on Thursday in Manchester, Tennessee, with 80,000 attendees. Cloud cover in the afternoon brought some relief to the high temperatures of the 90 Tennessee earlier in the week. Better yet, who brought a breeze, however, swirls of dust kicked up. Between Thursday and Sunday, more than 120 musical acts will play the festival. The list of performers is organizing the festival, both beyond recognition event – widespread panic, Les Claypool, Warren Haynes, McCoury and the String Cheese Incident all made in the first Bonnaroo in 2002 – as well as headline put Eminem and Arcade Fire as well play the festival for the first time.
Had a good start. The decision to open the doors on Wednesday night resulted in 50,000 of the 80,000 attendees on the basis of 8 am in the morning, long before the notes were played on stage. “Everyone is very excited, very optimistic,” says festival organizer Ashley Capps. “First day of the festival, to be honest, it was as good as it gets for us.” Capps said that the weather brings scattered showers over the weekend, “but it seems that a good outcome for us.”
Keep on Truckin ‘: Bonnaroo organizers continue to add new features to keep the event fresh in his 10 Th year. This year, the food truck is Oasis, which extends the dining options for the festival with half a dozen mobile kitchens with names like The Good You, Wayward PotKettleBlack Gourmet Bistro and mobile gastropods. Eatbox, by Molly Clark and Meg Alt Asheville, North Carolina, has a steady business selling gourmet meatballs. The most popular ball? “During the last two hours, was the Dirty South,” Alt said. That’s meatball grassfed meat, bacon, potatoes and bacon sauce. Also new for 2011 is inflatable water slide 35 feet. “It’s the first thing that happened because it’s very exciting,” said Nancy Lee, 25. Lee and two friends from Somerset, New Jersey, that every weekend to buy passes for water slides and 10. Let’s do this every day, “he says.
Revival tent. No-shows will be held in the main stage on Thursday, but had a lot of music in stores, which are actually sheds covering stages. Texas singer-songwriter alt-country Hayes Carll played in the other store (do not confuse this tent or tent). “All you need is some good looks – and a lot of alcohol – and we can overcome anything that separates us,” said Carll through the introduction of another like you. Hayes duo sang two parts – written from the point of view of an exchange insult liberals and conservatives, which are also found irresistible – to bring cheers and laughter from the crowd.
Waiting for word of mouth. Several events are played several games in various stages throughout the festival, in efforts to build their audiences. “How many of you have seen before?” Rachel Taylor asked Washington costume indie-pop that we, who had the small solar stage yesterday afternoon (and will perform again Friday night at Café new case). “Three … four … five … six? That’s fine.”
Duggery skull. The first day of Bonnaroo offers a variety of musical styles, from the West Coast-pop sound of mysterious elegance Wavves Karen Elson country-folk. British power trio Band of Skulls generated perhaps the biggest buzz first night with a performance based on 70 metal riffs and musical showmanship old. Pandemonium received the first notes of the Light of the Morning that the public knew like a classic cream or Deep Purple but it is a song best known for its commercial use in a Ford Mustang. These people obviously knew more than 60 seconds with him and singing songs like I Know What I Am, too.
Bells (and ears) the bells. “You want me to go around, Bonnaroo?” Alexis Sleigh Bells’ Krauss shouted pounding distorted A / B Machines. “You want me to go around?” Fans of noise-rock duo filled in the strongest possible around the phase of the other store, spilling beyond the confines of the structure. And since Krauss and guitarist Derek Miller took the stage to the sound of Black Sabbath’s Iron Man, which featured a relentless barrage of ear-piercing sounds of rock, techno and dub, with choppy guitar riffs, fragments tunes and strobe lights. Just before finishing the game on Thursday night, Krauss got into the hands and shoulders of several fans, and then let them go back several feet before returning to the stage.
