Bonnaroo Festival

At the Bonnaroo festival this past weekend, it was H-O-T, and we aren’t just talking about the weather. Tennessee, a state known for its country roots, changed it up by welcoming hoards of indie rockers and fashionable hipsters for the three-day music-fest. Bands like LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix and The National rocked out on stage while throngs of sharply dressed music lovers rocked out on the grass below. While the runways provide us with trends for future seasons, music festivals show us what “real” people are wearing when dancing to really cool music, right now. With unique mixes of vintage and designer pieces, partiers showcased the latest and greatest trends like rompers, rubber rain boots, panama hats and short shorts. The west coast has Coachella, the east coast has Bonnaroo, and on August 6th-8th “the middle” will have Lollapalooza. No doubt we will be waiting to check out the performers as well as the attendees.
