Bonnaroo: What to Bring?

n185001392_33919895_2687622I can't believe it's almost here...Bonnaroo! First let me introduce myself. My name is Emily Thousand and I'm the Digital Director here at Triple M. I am a designer, a web geek but most importantly a music fanatic. Going to live shows is one of my favorite things to do (as well as busting a move like nobody's business!) We'll be rockin' in style with some uber-cool Media passes and the plan is to utilize this to the fullest...I'm talking press conferences, exclusive interviews and more. Myself and my boyfriend Drew are getting together all of the items we'll need before we make the long road trip Wednesday night so we arrive mid-morning on Thursday. He's quite the experienced camper (and supreme list maker) so I'm fairly confident we'll be well prepared. The weather looks to be hot, humid and rainy but I'm really looking forward to a few days of channeling my inner hippie and enjoying epic dance parties in the rain. The general consensus on the absolute essentials (beyond camping gear, food, etc.) are rain ponchos, tanks + shorts and bug spray. I also found this cool website with the Top Ten Hippie Clothes you can make for Bonnaroo.070615bonnarooblogpain I might have to give some of those a try! Looking over the lists of what to bring and what not to bring, this is what we're planning on taking: Bonnaroo 2009 Stuff-to-Bring List Camping Gear/Essentials
  • Tent
  • Tarp
  • Sleeping bags (2)
  • Pillows
  • Air mattress and pump
  • Extra tent (just in case)
  • Flashlight and headlight
  • Camel Back!
  • Water Bottles
  • Batteries—AA, AAA, and C
  • Lap top and charger

  • Sun Screen and after sun gel
  • Lip balm
  • Bug Spray
  • Knife
  • Back Pack
  • Fanny Pack! (thrift store gold)
  • Wrist bands
  • Sunglasses (x 2 or 3…these get lost easily, people steal them!)
  • Ear plugs
  • Rope
  • EZ Up Tent
  • Citronella candles (2-3)
  • Folding chairs—I’m thinking we should get some low to the ground style chairs, the site says that we can bring those into the actual concert area…it might be nice.

  • Blanket
Cooking/Food/Beverage
  • Grill
  • Charcoal and lighter fluid

  • Bottled Water (48 or more?)
  • Gallon drinking water (10? We can fill up the small bottles so we don’t have to buy/use more!—scratch that, the site talks about allowing only factory sealed water bottles…)
  • Energy Drinks (12)
  • Diet Cola, canned 24 pack
  • Munchies (chips, trial mix, CRUNCH N’ MUNCH, dried fruit, nuts, jerkey)
  • Bananas, oranges, apples?
  • OJ (x2)
  • Brats (2 packs)
  • Onion (1)
  • Gatoraid powder
Clothing and Toiletries
  • Rain jacket and Rain Pants
  • Rubber Boots
  • Sweatshirts (2)
  • T-Shirts (6)
  • Shorts (2)
  • Jeans (2)
  • Hats (2)
  • Bandana (3 pack x 2)
  • Underwear (6)
  • Socks (lots)
  • Sandals
  • Shoes (2)
  • Towels (2)
  • Bar Soap (1)
  • Face soap
  • Razor and shaving cream
  • Small mirror
  • Comb
  • Aftershave
  • Deodorant
  • Moisturizer
  • Antibacterial ointment
  • First aid kit
I'll be buying some of the things on this list tonight, plus I'm going to work on a flag for our campsite. I hear it's one of the things you should do. I haven't sewn anything in 10 or 15 years but I think I can make something work. I'll leave you with this video recap of Bonnaroo 2008...I wonder if this is what 2009 holds? --posted by Emily Thousand

The only things that sucks about Bonaroo is that: A-you realize you're in Tennessee in June, when the weather is simply awful. and oh yeah, you're in Tennessee B-you work for Triple M and Pat Gallagher, the boss, is the main judge for a songwriter/musician contest. I mean, seriously? Gallagher? a music critic? now that is pure comedy C-the art of good music is out there......unforunately, the gallery of Bonaroo is one of the worst of 2009.

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
