    You have no pictures from Bonnaroo..your whole article is now irrelevant.

    • Perry Finley

      as of 9:20 PM on 12/21/14 at least 1,500 people seem to disagree

      Bonnaroo? Bonnapoo.

    I really don’t dig the photo with the huge VIP section. Segregation at a music festival seems to contradict the whole concept of bringing everyone together to share an experience. I definitely will not be participating in that music festival.

    • Perry Finley

      Hey Melissa. The picture was chosen more for how many people are in the picture in total. Amazing perspective regarding how many come together over a shared interest. I definitely feel your sentiment and agree with what your saying. I think in the context of festivals, most people are not upset if they cant be in VIP. I don’t see one unhappy face in that crowd. Just getting there can be a life changing experience. I know it was for me when I started attending these events at 17.

      The primary age range of the music festival demographic is 16-35. When you are younger, you aren’t really concerned with being in VIP. In many cases, increased income comes with age. Nothing wrong with the more ‘mature’ audience paying for an enhanced experience if that is there cup of tea.

      I’m with ya though. I prefer being right in the thick of it.

      Completely agree…most these pics tho are just the mainstream trash thats ruining the family scene that makes fedtivals so awesome.
      Renegade festies over moneymakers any day

        i totally agree… the kissing is cute, but more festival stuff… less front row….

    All I see is mostly self-indulgent narcissists where the drugs are winning.

      Your unsubstantiated assumptions say way more about yourself than anyone in these photos.
