Blogaroo from Bonnaroo ’09: Friday preview



The sun was out this morning, before quickly becoming overcast. I can only hope that the floodgates don’t open again.

After an early-morning press orientation meeting, the music will get started at This Tent with Tift Merritt. Toubab Krewe is set to open things at The Other Tent.

While Animal Collective is on Which Stage, St. Vincent will be in That Tent and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals will be rocking This Tent.

Galactic will be jazzing up the main stage, known as What Stage. Later in the day, Yeah Yeah Yeahs will rock Which Stage while Santigold is in That Tent.

Also this evening, Al Green, TV on the Radio, Lucinda Williams and Ani DiFranco.

The first headliner of the festival is Beastie Boys who will hit What Stage at 8:30, followed by Phish at 11.

David Byrne will play on the Which Stage and is rumored to be joined by a handful of performers.

The late night will be featuring Phoenix at 11:30, Femi Kuti at 12 and Public Enemy at 12:30.

The biggest anticipation for me is checking out Girl Talk in That Tent at 2:15 a.m.

Should be a long, hopefully dry, day.
