Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, the iconic music festival held annually in Manchester, Tennessee, returned this month for its annual four-day festivities June 15-18, with a lineup including Kendrick Lamar, ODESZA, Lil Nas X, Foo Fighters, Paramore and others.
Back for its second edition since canceling in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and severe weather, respectively, Bonnaroo showcased a wide range of music genres this year, from rock and pop to hip-hop and electronic music, having further cemented its status as a must-attend event every festival season.
Some of this year's favorite moments including the much-hyped return of the Foo Fighters as well as Pixies, performing within an hour of each other on separate stages. New Foo member and drummer Josh Freese also offered a nod to the Pixies' influence, sporting a shirt during the band's performance with glittery letters spelling out the members of the Pixies' first names.
Meanwhile, as Paramore thrives in their own recent comeback, they offered one of the most electric sets of the long weekend.
On Friday night, the What Stage was the place to be as back-to-back performances proved to be standout ones from the likes of Portugal. The Man leading into Baby Keem leading into none other than Kendrick Lamar, who is certainly making the rounds this festival season.
