BONNAROO 2016 PREVIEW & ADVICE | June 9-12, 2016

by • June 8, 2016

I’m so god damn excited to be going to my third straight Bonnaroo (HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY ROO, YOU CAN GET YOUR LEARNERS PERMIT). Every year I gain a little more experience whether it be concerning camping or hallucinogen use, the information is all useful for next year. Spending your time googling a “Bonnaroo Necessity list” will help; pinteresting campsite ideas are actually very useful to staying comfortable in a Tennessee summer (trust me). There are certain phenomena that occur are hardly explicable, and then again it’s almost everything you’d expect it to be. So while you may be fantasizing about seeing all of your favorite artists in one weekend, remember you are avoiding the dust bowl oven that is central Tennessee in June. The delirium-inducing heat, however, does provide a magical sense of being, in which can only be explained in terms not fathomable to someone who hasn’t been camping on the farm.

The best Roo advice I can possibly give to you is to live and let live; do not take a single moment for granted, and stop trying to fucking videotape everything! You’ll never watch that shit again. The moment is now, not later through a shitty tiny screen. (Also give all the high fives and hugs you can, and be prepared to scream BONNAROOOO at least 700 times.) I’m sure I will be the asshole snapping (@showsigoto) for this lovely website for the whole weekend to keep you air-conditioned whores entertained while I lose 11 lbs (I can’t afford to lose) and fight dehydration one Camelbak at a time. I wish you were all with me for the greatest weekend of the year, maybe next year we can all take peyote and drive up together.
