“Since I’ve never been to Bonnaroo, I’m really looking forward to the overall experience, but most especially I am excited about the fashion, the music (obviously!) and the new friends I’ll be making! Music festivals are such incredible events and I have always heard that Bonnaroo is in a league of it’s own, so I can’t wait to experience that first hand.”
