Last year we sent Billboard’s Dominick Grillo around the fest to check out the five acts that had received the least number of “check-ins” on the official Bonnaroo app, and he actually saw a then little-known James Bay. Would ‘Roo 2015 help launch another unknown act into the mainstream?
The 14th Bonnaroo is in the books, and as tens of thousands of attendees are sent back to their normal lives, left with the memories of the weekend that was. So when they’re inevitably asked for the highlights, what names will pop up?
Bonnaroo 2015 is in the books. Sunday -- the fest’s fourth and final day -- was a little tamer than the days before it, since the crowd began to realize the inevitability of work the next day or a long trip home.
Bonnaroo 2015 hit its second half in grand fashion yesterday (June 14) with an action-packed, marathon day of big time performances and zany collaborations. Mumford & Sons made good on their promise to return after cancelling as 2013 headliners, and pulled out a bunch of their friends for a rousing headlining set.
Where else but the Bonnaroo Superjam! would you be able to find superstars, rising up-and-comers, and A-list actors coming together to make music that will never be replicated? 2015’s Superjam! took things back with a collection of (mostly) ‘80s dance-ready tunes curated by electronic artist Pretty Lights.
