Bonnaroo


I’ve covered Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2016.

The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival is a four-day music festival located on a farm in Manchester, Tennessee.

Bonnaroo was the first music festival I’d ever shot. Armed with a press wristband secured through my college newspaper and a Canon 30D, I camped out in the front row to shoot artists like Rafael Saadiq, Elvis Costello, and Public Enemy in 2009.

In following years, I covered the festival as a music writer and part of the Nashville Scene crew, reviewing performances by headliners like LCD Soundsystem in 2016 and smaller sets by local bands, up-and-coming artists, and comedians alike.

As a photographer, I’ve been shooting Bonnaroo with a photo pass since 2010. My goal is to capture the feeling of being at the festival—which feels more akin to Woodstock than Coachella, with a decidedly hippie-ish vibe despite its eclectic line-up—as well as the grandeur of seeing huge artists like Kendrick Lamar and Arcade Fire up close.
