Post image for a bag for bonnaroo

bonnaroo is almost here! three days…it is time to start thinking about packing and luckily i’ve been a couple of times so i know exactly what to expect. here’s a look at what will be in my suitcase!

bonnaroo takes place on a farm in manchester tennessee, and at this time of year it gets brutally HOT – you are in a wide open space with very few trees, and people actually fight over the shade. but even if the forecast is for sunshine all weekend, there is still a very good chance that at some point it will rain. i would not go to bonnaroo without a good pair of waterproof boots and a raincoat!

during the hot days i tend to wear a bathing suit under cutoff shorts and a lightweight top. the chiffon slip would be perfect. throughout festival grounds there are mist tents set up for people too cool off, and believe me they are the BEST. i would bring a reusable water bottle too, because they have water stations throughout the grounds and buying bottled water is pricey (not to mention bad for the environment). sunglasses and sunblock are a must, and i’ll probably wear my straw fedora the whole weekend – i’m obsessed. a blanket is good to have for shows, especially the mellow shows where you just want to lie down, close your eyes, listen to the music and drift away…

free people items pictured above: 1. vlatava convertible skirt; 2. chiffon and mesh slip; 3. indian toile tube; 4. rugged & ripped cut-off short; 5. nicholas k larmont jacket; 6. fp skinny military cargo; 7. straw fedora; 8. classic aviator; 9. suede medicine bag; 10. printed v wire bikini; 11. folklore sandal.

other items: hunter boots, pendleton blanket, burt’s bees sunblock, sigg water bottle, sony digital camera.

I really, really enjoyed this! I'm spontaneously quitting my job this fall for backpacking trip across South America. I'm a huge fan and customer of free people (and your wonderful blog <3) and was wondering if you ever put together a list like this for backpacking? I love your clothing because of how well the pieces overall can coordinate and are convertible (and beautiful!) - it's perfect since I obviously can't bring that much.. Anyway, just wondering! Thanks!

i'm wearing my ends in sequins dress (with rainboots...) to bonnaroo! yes!

wake up to the sun rising over the mountaintops, shedding light over the nature and beauty of squaw valley, california.  breathe in the crisp, refreshing air and stretch your limbs with an energizing yoga class. take a cable car with astonishing views to the mountaintop to explore meadows and streams and lose yourself in nature. come back down to the village where music, bongo drums and laughter fill the air.  wander among the booths and shops and indulge in delicious locally grown food as the sun goes down.  the stars twinkle above and the village heats up with fire dancers, acrobats and late night music sets by renowned djs like moby, bassnectar and pretty lights.

Post image for bonnaroo lineup – part one

in the days leading up to a music festival like bonnaroo, it’s hard to think about anything else.  one of the first things you need to think about before going are what bands you definitely want to see, because it is never possible to see them all. there are two stages and three tents which all have shows going on simultaneously, so sometimes two acts you want to see will be playing at the same time.  bonnaroo announced the festival schedule last week and i immediately printed it out and highlighted the bands i want to check out.

here’s a look at some highlights on thursday and friday!

thursday

unfortunately we aren’t getting there until friday- so i was a little bummed about missing these acts!

fanfarlo

loacalnatives1

local natives

trapper

blitzen trapper

the-xx

the xx

friday

here’s my tentative lineup for friday, which is jam packed with good bands…

Edward+Sharpe++the+Magnetic+Zeros+All+band

edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros

Dr+Dog+drdog3

dr. dog

st_shehim

she & him

the_national3

the national

Les-31

les claypool

0703_kings_of_leon_c

kings of leon

the kings of leon will headline friday night – fp jemma and i were talking about this the other day and we agreed – we want to hear the old stuff! i can do without the latest album please play “trani” and “joe’s head”!

late night

another great thing about bonnaroo? it never stops.  the shows go on late into the night and into the early morning. a couple of years ago my morning jacket went onstage at midnight and played until 4am – one of the greatest shows i’ve ever seen. if you can hang in, the late night shows are always good for dancing… here are some good ones on friday night/saturday morning:

Flaming-Lips-scream

the flaming lips

theblackkeys-promo

the black keys

lcd

lcd soundsystem

the first predicament of the weekend – the flaming lips play from 12am – 2am and the black keys from 12am – 1:30am.  i love the black keys so normally this would be an easy pick, but the flaming lips rock too and they’ll be playing  pink floyd’s the dark side of the moon in its entirety with star death and white dwarfs.  which would you see??

here’s a playlist of the above artists for you to enjoy!

YOU MUST GO SEE THE FLAMING LIPS! i saw them about two months ago and they played Eclipse and Brain Damage from Dark side of the moon, and of course they played their new cd. It was unbelievable. A TOTAL MUST SEE! I love the black keys too, but the flaming lips show is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Go, see, love.
fp courtney -Jun 02, 2010, 9:58AM
see the flaming lips!

ten days till bonnaroo! i can’t believe it’s already almost here…myself and fp jemma, along with a couple of other fp girls, will be heading to tennessee to soak up the festival atmosphere, listen to some great music and scope out the fashion down on the farm :) stay tuned for many more posts as we prepare for our trip, and live blogging from the festival!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
