Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Bonnaroovians, and music fans everywhere, the time has finally arrived, that sacred weekend in June for the summer’s greatest music festival, the one and only Bonnaroo!
The gates open at 8pm tonight but with a crowd this large (90,000+ people estimated) the festivities have already begun as road-tripping concert-goers have taken to social media to share their experiences. Over the next five days I’ll be posting tweets, IG photos and videos and Vines in order to bring the Bonnaroo experience to all of us who won’t be on The Farm. In addition, this year Roo has teamed up with Red Bull TV for the exclusive live stream so be sure to download the app on your device or smart tv for what’s sure to be some of the Summer’s greatest live music. There’s plenty that you absolutely don’t want to miss at this year’s festival such as Billy Joel, Kendrick Lamar, Run the Jewels, Earth Wind & Fire, Gary Clark Jr., Hozier, Childish Gambino… the list just keeps going. So keep it locked right here all weekend long as we don our favorite hippie garb, make our way under The Arch, and join in all the festival fun. It’s JP Lime Live from Bonnaroo (Sort of), only at JPLimeProductions.com.
We want to see and hear about your time at Roo! Follow us on Twitter and IG @JPLime and @DrProfEsq. CLICK HERE to stay caught up on all the Roo fun, including our vicarious coverage of last year’s festival.
They’ve travelled far and wide, bearing electronic wristbands, camping gear, and a little dude named Roofus headed to Manchester, TN, home of “The Farm” since 2002. It’s an amazing feat in civil engineering as the hoard of thousands are orderly filed along the Tennessee highway and into the festival grounds. Mere hours now remain before the gates open. The anticipation builds.

On the Road to Roo
Volunteer staff have been on The Farm since earlier this week, making preparations and enjoying the serenity of what will soon be filled Roo-ful revelry.

They’ve been keeping a careful eye on the weather…
And though it initially looked like the Bonnaroovians were in for a rainy weekend, the outlook is now considerably brighter:
