Bonnaroo Pictures

Here are a few shots I took during Bonnaroo. They are all work safe.

My little corner of Bonnaroo


Notice the truck tent, which really saved space and made my camping significantly more comfortable. The tall tent just to the right of my truck was my shower tent, equipped with a battery operated pump and a propane water heater. Hot showers are a wonderful thing. If I'd wanted to, I probably could have paid for my whole trip by selling showers to other campers.

The interior view


I built this setup over the last 4 years that my brother and I have been going to Bristol for the races. I've pretty much finished it,except for a good sound system. Due to space considerations,I left the movie projector and screen at home.

I could have been much worse off


These cars were clean just a day ago. The dust was everywhere. I saw lots of folks using bandannas to keep the dust from diluting the pot they were smoking.

Music Festival or Refugee camp?

Packed in like a can of sardines


If you were on the inside of a row, you were going to be staying for the entire festival, whether you wanted to or not.

One of the many vendors selling...ummm...stuff


Quoting from the Bonnaroo Guide:
Illegal drugs are forbidden at the festival, and the festival safety/security staff will work with law enforcement officers to handle drug related violations in accordance with Tennessee Law.

Yeah, ask them what happens when you fail to control immigration.

Green Camping Bonnaroo Style


Nothing green survives Bonnaroo. Well, except for the almighty dollar.

If everybody is having such a good time,why aren't they smiling?

I'm having so much fun I'm just going to lie here in the middle of the hot, dusty road!

Obviously, Bonnaroo wasn't all bad. These ribbon fries were every bit as good as they looked.

And I got to meet Alexa Ray Joel and talk with her for a few minutes. For a young lady who has grown up in a spotlight with two famous parents, she is refreshingly candid, and just plain nice to be around.

She sings pretty well too!

And if you could fight your way through all the obstacles, there was some mighty fine music to be had,including these guys,Railroad Earth, a newgrass jam band.

Now that's what I call Bonnaroo coverage man!

Thanks!

If I had a cool set up like that, I might even go to those things. Are they even going to have it next year?

Were are the naked swimming shots? Mud sliding?

No, these were great Doug...thanks again for this post.

Maybe you should try an opened mind next time you try something slightly different than....Bristol.
Also, people probably weren't smiling because they could not figure out why this weird fat man was walking around taking candid picture of them.
Think about it.
