New Bonnaroo Website

The new and fantastically improved Bonnaroo website is now up and running with some very cool new features - including their very own social networking community.

Here's some info....

When you roll into Manchester each summer, you join a vital community of music fans from all across the nation and around the world. Now you can do that year-round, right from home. Our new Bonnaroo Community lets you create your own profile and meet fellow citizens of Bonnaroo online.

You can upload photos, share audio, show off your best Bonnaroo videos and riff in your own blog. We even have a "Ride Finder" message board set up to help you get to and from the grounds. Broadcast your past Bonnaroo experiences or make plans for this year's festival starting right now here. We're waiting for you!

So head on over, start exploring and make sure to add me as your friend!!

Willie Nelson Confirmed?

Thankfully someone is playing attention to potential Bonnaroo news - as The Weight's eagle eyes caught this posting on Pollstar indicating that Willie Nelson and will be playing Manchester this year. The Red Headed Stranger was on the bill a few years back, but had to pull out because of carpel tunnel syndrome - if memory serves me Steve Winwood replaced him on the bill.

Also country singer Pat Green looks like he will be there too, continuing the tradition of booking mainstream country acts that they started last year with Dirks Bentley.
