We are thrilled to announce the release of first and only official book about Bonnaroo! The book contains over 200 photos covering the first 10 years of Bonnaroo’s history, featuring shots taken by some of the best shooters working in music today, including Danny Clinch, C. Taylor Crothers, Jeff Kravitz and Ryan Mastro, among others. The book was designed by our very talented friends at National Forest. It also features an essay by Alan Light, frequent contributor to New York Times and Rolling Stone, and highlights numerous personal anecdotes from fans the festival staff, and some of the top musicians and comedians who have performed there.
From dazzling atmospheric photos to exclusive up-close-and-personal shots of the artists both backstage and onstage, it also celebrates the deeply collaborative nature of the festival — a give-and-take continuum that takes place between bands and other bands, fans and their favorite bands, the festival and the local community and the land it’s held on, a place so uniquely located and laid out, that it gives one the feeling that this beautiful thing could only exist right where it does. Most significantly, it honors the greatest collaboration – the one between the fans themselves, who build an unspoken trust with one another and peacefully coexist while assembling what becomes the sixth largest city in Tennessee for the best weekend of their lives.
