Hello lovely inforoosters! I've been on the board since deciding to go to Roo 2012 early last year...since then I've been checking the board nearly every day for any small morsel of Roo-related info, so I figured it was about high time that I introduce myself, and perhaps post a bit more!

I had never been there either and didn't really know what the expect, but the interior is insane -- like a Japanese kabuki theatre, the ceiling in the main theatre is the night sky with these little lights that fade in and out...great atmosphere for a concert!
Music fuels us as we continue to conquer the battlefields of boredom and artistic freedom.

hi. My name is woobs (oo in book, not oo in boob) , and Im addicted to Bonnaroo. The first time I went it changed my outlook on life and made me realize that there are still good people in the world. The energy and vibes that I get when Im on the farm is something that cant be explained to someone who has never been. This will be my 5th year and im just as excited as the first time. and now I will be yelling corncat so I can meet some of you fine peoples. Cheers!
