bonnaroo night one

we pulled into bonnaroo as the sun was going down and had just enough time to find the guest camping area and set up our campsite before making our way to the main stage to see the kings of leon. i have never seen them live before and let me tell you they did not disappoint! it was a phenomenal set- the highlights for me were definitely their cover of the pixies song “where is my mind,” and “trani” which i had been hoping to hear!


another benefit of being a guest at bonnaroo? access to the special viewing platform to the side of the stage (and away from the sea of people).



next we headed over to which stage where the flaming lips were about to come on. as usual, they came out with an explosion of lights and color and balloons that was a pretty amazing sight.




the magical mushroom fountain…


it was a very long day and we were exhausted from the heat…we stopped by to see some of the black keys show before heading back to our campsite where we fell asleep listening to the flaming lips play dark side of the moon.  not a bad way to end the day!

now we’re off to see what saturday has in store, stay tuned…
