This is my first year at Bonnaroo, and it has already been an adventure. To put it simply, Bonnaroo is another planet.
Here are 10 reasons why:
1. Personal hygiene is an option.
2. Suddenly, wearing rubber shoes in public are not only acceptable, but smart. In fact, crocs wearers are probably the hippest of the hipsters.
3. Wearing rain boots and a bikini does not make you weird. It makes you a trend setter.
4. The bigger the sunglasses you wear is relative the level of SPF in your sunscreen.
5. Taking a nap in the middle of a muddy field is not only convenient, it is relaxing.
6. Everyone at Bonnaroo is a music connoisseur, and if you don’t believe this, “this band” that you’re hearing “right now” is “amazing.”
7. Every show is a dance party.
8. Strangers are now your neighbors, and neighbors are old friends.
9. It has its own ice cream.
10. In 90+ degree weather, this fan-misted-tent-thing is a blessing. A shower is a luxury, $7 and sponsored by Garnier Frutis.
