Bonnaroo 2014, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mob

Bonnaroo 2014, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mob

An avoider of crowds, heat, and loud noises, I wasn’t looking forward to Bonnaroo. Ryan knew it, everyone knew it. I thought it would be some kind of third world country where people were clawing over each other for the last pizza crust, burning up in the sweltering Tennessee heat and drinking warm, flat PBR. I was reassured the whole week before and the whole drive up, but still felt nervous.


Luckily, it ended up being super fun! I got to see all kinds of bands I loved, hang out with old friends and new, and sleep under the stars (with only a mosquito net between us). Here are some of my favorite pictures I took at the festival.

There was a sponsored face painting/flower crown-making booth near our tent.

I’m loving how trendy this face apparel is becoming. Pro tip: I found out it’s from ShopJeen.IMG_9604

All kinds of crazy people were dressed up. I stopped to take this guy’s picture and he grabbed a random girl to fake propose. She was cool and went with it—I think that was the overall theme of Bonnaroo.IMG_9612

Tons of cool totems. I gathered my favorites from Instagram and wrote about them hereIMG_9617 IMG_9578 IMG_9580IMG_9553 IMG_9576 IMG_9550 IMG_9535 IMG_9542 IMG_9547

Our totem was this terrifying art project Jonathan had made for school last year. Every time we went through security, the staff would be like “that thing is freaky as fuck.” Ryan was so proud of it. IMG_9548

He also brought a couple disposable cameras—I can’t wait to see how they turn out!IMG_9529 IMG_9530 IMG_9531

The stages were named Which, What, This, That, and the Other—I thought that was super frustrating, but cheeky all the same.IMG_9525And of course, a double rainbow.
