Bonnaroo is like Survivor, except instead of eating rice and drinking water, eating drugs and drinking alcohol is more the norm. 100 degree heat, blazing sun, little shade, no showers, lack of technology, mosh pit injuries, unprotected hippie sex, and all types of insects are just some of the elements to battle. Two people lost that battle this year, both dying due to hyperthermia. But for the majority of us, it’s all worth it to see today’s and yesterday’s indie and hip hop stars with 100,000+ smelly festival-goers. The four day Manchester, Tennessee event was highlighted by great performances by Arcade Fire, Eminem, The Strokes, Mumford and Sons, Girl Talk, J Cole, Chiddy Bang, and many others.
