I went to three Bonnaroo’s back in the day.  They were fun, but MAN they were a LOT of work.  I realized the third year that I was just not cut out for that noise- I love concerts, but I love showering and sleeping in a real bed more ๐Ÿ™‚

we have been to other festivals that are day trips-pumpkin, strawberry, wooly bear, etc that are usually fun. i never found one to stay overnight at, though. sounds fun!

@laurn88:  Bonnaroo is epic. Freakin’ epic. The problem is, though, that you spend all this time and money to go, and inevitably three bands you really want to see are playing at the same time and you have to make annoying choices, usually more based on who’s playing in a tent versus on a stage and where you can get shade or where you can catch a nap.  It kind of has gotten too big, IMO- it’s really exceptionally well organized and well put together, and incredibly controlled considering its size, but it’s just too much.  If you do go, go with a small group you know well- you’ll need the sanity as a break. My last year, I was with a huge group I didn’t really like all that much (friends of my ex) and it was a hot mess.

We go to one called SHARE, every spring and fall. Jam bands and more hippies and drugs than one could ever imagine.
