Just a little while ago, in a fantastic marketing move, Bonnaroo announced their 2012 lineup. By creating a playlist on Spotify, festival fans were able to see and listen to all the artists that are playing at this year’s festival. This is something that I have not ever seen before, and it’s pretty impressive in my opinion. For most music festivals recently, I’ve had to make my own playlist, picking out the songs for all the artists and that takes forever. For those who want to check it out, here’s the link: Bonnaroo Lineup Spotify

The lineup is great. Radiohead, The Beach Boys, and The Avett Brothers are some of the huge names along with The Shins and Bon Iver. I’m also pretty excited to see Ludacris, Childish Gambino, and Feist. The lineup is seriously stacked. Some of the smaller names include Blind Pilot, Ben Howard, and Gary Clark Jr. I could keep listing the great bands, but you can check out the lineup yourself here: http://lineup.bonnaroo.com.

Bonnaroo takes place in Manchester, TN on June 7-10 and tickets go on sale Saturday at Noon from Bonnaroo’s website. Cannot wait to sweat my face off and see some great music. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.

    1. I’m betting it will be a greatest hits set, hopefully with and emphasis on SMiLE Sessions material.
