Did anyone just get back from Bonnaroo? What were your favorite performances?
For the uninitiated, what's the location and format?

Bonnaroo is the 4-day music and arts festival held in Manchester, TN. It is similar to Lollapalooza and Coachella. I didn't go this year, but I am interested in hearing about the performances - especially the Pearl Jam show. I heard there were also some great comedians there too.
Interesting. Who else was there?
My advice to you is if you want to see who was there and what it was like is to simply search Google; you'll find the official site with the band list as well as reviews.

Good advice, and so welcoming and helpful in building a dialog on this forum.
Hi Discman, Some of the headliners were Metallica, Jack Johnson, Widespread Panic and Robert Plant/Alison Krauss - quite a line-up, right?
Chris Rock and Janeane Garofalo were the comedic headliners. I am looking forward to the 2009 line-up announcement!
Thanks. The diversity is pretty impressive, and yet I'd be interested in most of those artists. How crowded is it with that kind of lineup? Some festivals do a lousy job of ticket control vs the size of the place.
Some friends of mine went and had a fantastic time. Check out their video to get a flavor http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Ba5L7F_zQ
There's a note from Kanye here on his performance at Bonnaroo here:
