Detroit Does Bonnaroo 2010

Posted By on Wed, Jun 9, 2010 at 1:53 PM

New this week here at The Metro Times Music Blog, we'll be bringing you the latest on all of the Detroit area's finest who are making the trek down to Manchester, Tennessee's annual Bonnaroo Music Festival. We'll wade through the sea of the two hips--the patcholi stinking hippies and PBR schwilling hipsters--to bring updates on Detroit heavy hitters like Stevie Wonder and The Dead Weather, as well as smaller bands like Frontier Ruckus, Mayer Hawthorne & The County (both named in Rolling Stone's essential sets) Mike Posner,Diane Burch and Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas. I'll do my best to keep everyone updated with daily pictures and videos...hopefully. Stay tuned!

While this year we'll be focusing on all things Detroit at the Bonnaroo, this will be my fifth straight year heading to one of the largest music festivals in the US, and each year proves to be as chock full of surprises as the last. So check out a few of my photos from previous Bonnaroo's with Pearl Jam, Phish with guest Bruce Springsteen, David Byrne, My Morning Jacket and whatever the hell else people seem to get their hands on, in the slideshow below. If you're heading down, or have been to the festival before share your experiences below...
