BEFORE THEY WERE HEADLINERS

WHAT IS BRIC-A-BRAC?

Disney’s not the only brand with a vault. Well… legally they are – so we call our collection Bric-a-Brac. Enjoy our videos, photographs and stories as we share our epic Bonnaroo moments. Each installment will be wrapped around a central theme such as Collaborations, Legends, or Late Night.

VIDEO: MUMFORD ON THE RISE

Before Mumford & Sons headed to Bonnaroo in 2010, the U.K. folk-rockers performed a special stripped down show in New York — and we caught it on tape. The group, who are headlining this year, had released their debut, Sigh No More, the year before and were just starting to acquire the hefty following they boast now.
