Bonnaroo 2009: Gone Phishin’

February 03, 2009

Everyone knows the old adage that says a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, this photo by Cheryl Dunn from last year's Bonnaroo pretty much sums up the festival's vibe better than any wordsmith ever could. However, if you look at it and expect the lineup to be nothing more than jam bands and bean burritos, you're only about 37% right and really maybe you should just check out Phish before you go around judging everyone. Ha, we're kidding. Judge away, this is going to be neo-hippie mud puddle no doubt, but when has that ever not been fun, or at least worth a few horror stories? Live now, children! Check the full roster after the jump and go to for more details.
