The Road to Bonnaroo 2010

Happy Dude, photo courtesy of imaphotogIt’s Wednesday afternoon, and I’m just about ready mentally to take on Bonnaroo. Apart from a few age-related concerns (tolerance of large crowds, the need to eat three sensible meals a day, achy joints, sun fatigue), and a severely limited beer budget, I’m stoked for a long weekend spent seeing amazing live music and a comedy tent line-up that is absolutely bangin’.

As I begin highlighting and marking up my printed schedule PDF, here are some sought after destinations of this slightly trepid first-time festival press person:

  • Aziz Ansari, joined with his Human Giant pals Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, and Nick Kroll;
  • The Roasting of ‘Roo with Jeffrey Ross and Chelsea Peretti;
  • Any show where Reggie Watts will be performing;
  • Conan O’Brien, preferably live but possibly in the live feed overflow tent;
  • Live panel Q&A with Rob Corddry, Jonathan Stern, and David Wain, as they present the new Adult Swim series, Childrens Hospital;
  • A mainstage performance by Tenacious D;
  • A visit to the mysterious Adult Swim Ragbag of Jollification grounds, with a stop off to the festival Ferris wheel.

Stay tuned for irregular updates and blurry photos live from Bonnaroo as camperless Kristy pitches a virtual tent inside the comedy tent. She also hopes to pop a bottle or three with Jay-Z and the Black Keys.

Conan isn't going to be live? That is too bad - probably busy ramping up for his new show on TBS.

Anyways I thought you might be interested in this report we put out over at SeatGeek:

The report compares Bonnaroo ticket prices to the average transaction price of individual tickets in the secondary market, ultimately highlighting savings of over $680.

One of the things I hate most about living in England is the lack of decent outdoor festivals: music, movie or live acts. I know you get the best of the stuff indoors, but MAN I REALLY MISS THE OUTDOORS!
