‘Tis the season! It’s like Christmas, but sweatier.
2015 was my first Bonnaroo experience. First “camping” experience too, although we were spoiled with nearby showers and access to the air conditioned media tent. Ha!! But in honor of Throwback Thursday, this was my favorite happening at Bonnaroo in 2015.
I got to the farm LATE on Friday night. This was when I used to be on the air until midnight, so it had to be close to 2am when I got there. We were setting up our campsite behind the Which Stage where music was still playing. Several people were walking by us, and I heard a guy say “I like that shirt,” which was a Cage The Elephant t-shirt. Not even looking up at this person (it was dark!) I just said “Thanks, are you a fan?” He said back, laughing “Yeah that’s my band.” Turns out it was Matt from Cage The Elephant! Not even 45 minutes into my first Bonnaroo trip, and look who I ran into… and coincidentally in his band’s shirt. Turns out he was only a few tents away from us, so we saw a lot of him that weekend being neighbors at the campsite.
Looking forward to another trip to the farm this weekend!
