The 2011 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival might be winding down, but that doesn't mean the talent is any weaker than it has been. Sure, the heat has taken its toll on the energy of many 'Roo-sters, but there's still plenty of good stuff left to see.
The day will get started with The Head and the Heart. It's one of those buzz bands that's been on my radar for quite a while. I'm interested to see how it all comes together live. They're in The Other Tent at noon.
While G. Love kicks things off on Which Stage at 12:30, Mavis Staples will get it started on What Stage at 1:15 p.m.
I'll be heading to The Other Tent at 1:30 to catch former Charlotte resident Nicole Atkins.
Neon Trees will hit This Tent at 1 p.m. And I'm interested in seeing Galactic on the big stage at 3:30 p.m.
The afternoon is where the choices are tough. 4:30 p.m. brings a triple-battle between Iron & Wine, Gregg Allman and Robyn. Then Cold War Kids start at 5 p.m.
6 p.m. will have Robert Plant & Band of Joy on the main stage, but then another tough choice lies around the corner.
The Strokes start at 6:45, as does Explosions in the Sky. Beirut went on at 6:15 p.m. and the Superjam featuring Dan Auerbach and Dr. Jon starts at 7.
The night will end with Widespread Panic hitting the main stage at 8:30 p.m.
