The Hipster Guide to Bonnaroo

Telling the Yeasayers from the Heartless Bastards.

Videos by American Songwriter

Bonnaroo 2009 launches today. It’s the only festival in history where you can catch both Bruce Springsteen and Phish at the same fest. It’s gonna be a great weekend.

The bloggers at Pitchfork have posted their own concert guide for the festival, which we enjoyed enough to reprint here. Now, you too can party like a hipster (rule no. 1 = no Phish) and catch game 5 of the NBA finals. Check it out.
