Is it really already time for communal showers, Porta-Johns and sweat-drenched people everywhere you look? Bonnaroo 2010 opens its gates this Thursday in the wee town of Manchester, Tenn.

The madcap team from the Knoxville News Sentinel is leaving Thursday morning, so please allow me to introduce you to the official Knoxville.com Bonnaroo 2010 journalists covering this year’s festival.

It’s my sixth year covering Bonnaroo, so I can no longer play the newbie card. That distinction goes to knoxnews.com intern, Linda Nguyen, who will be shadowing this veteran as we cover the wilds of Manchester together. Since it’s her first time – as a journalist and attendee – show her some love by following her on Twitter @ttlnguyen.

Photographer Saul Young can’t designate me his personal assistant this year, since I stopped schlepping around his camera equipment 5 years ago. After a 2-year hiatus, Saul is returning to the Bonanroo beat and will be blogging, publishing photo galleries and Tweeting from @saulyoung.

Fortunately, my last Bonnaroo partner in crime, Wayne Bledsoe, has never stuck me with any grunt work. Instead, he leaves me with the tab at our favorite German restaurant in Manchester, The Gasthaus. Just kidding, Wayne! But boy am I looking forward to some Jagerschnitzel. And you should be looking forward to Wayne’s dispatches and stories on Knoxville.com.

Jokes aside, we hope to bring you our most complete coverage to date in our Bonnaroo 2010 section.

There’ll be video performances and interviews with musicians, photo galleries, stories and my round-the-clock tweets from @Bonnaroonews.

If you’re at the ‘Roo and can point us toward something interesting, or if you’re not there and have some questions, tweet us and let us know!

Deodorant is right. The only cool place at Bonnaroo is the air conditioned porta johns!
