Bonnaroo Line-up Is Awesome!!

posted by S. Russ

arcade_fire_973420299.jpgTypically Bonnaroo is an event that doesn’t appeal to me outside of one or two artists.  Over the years the 4 day Tennessee event has gotten increasingly better, and this year they really went all out.  There are so many GRAMMY winners and nominees that it will make your head spin, and that is even before you get to the classic artists appearing.  Here is just a small sampling:

Arcade Fire
Eminem
The Black Keys
Niel Young
Mumford and Sons
Allison Krauss & Union Station
Florence + The Machine
Loretta Lynn

That short list is really only scratching the surface.  Seriously, I attempted to write a post containing descriptions about the recent successes of the artists performing, but it would have been even longer than my last post about the Justin Bieber Bible Study.  One of my favorite things about festival line-ups is wondering what it would be like for the artists to be in the same room together, but there is so much solid gold here that I don’t even know where to begin.

Let’s put this down at the first year I would consider going to Bonnaroo, and after you see this list that may be the case for you too.

I nearly got down on my knees to beg Coart to let us go… and then I realized that 2 tickets to Bonnaroo cost as much as an iPad, and that was the end of that. LOL
You may now throw stones and hurl insults. :)
I would *love* to go to Bonnaroo. We almost did. But, in the end, I’m not paying $250 to sleep in a tent in 100 degree heat and humidity along with 80,000 other people all trying to get there on I-75.
I’m consoling myself by telling my inner music geek that 100 bands can’t possibly play very long sets. *sighs*

Tell me about it! I tried to get Beliefnet to send me but they laughed at me.

Lionel Richie... What Are You Doing??
Pop and R&B legend Lionel Richie has suddenly popped on the charts again.  I love me some Lionel, and have since his glory days in the '80s, so I was excited to see what he had going on. I wish I hadn't.  Here's why: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAqz0AwLRjk&ob=av2e[/youtub
