In a few short weeks, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will announce the initial round of artists for what will be the 10th year in a row the festival has been a fixture in Middle Tennessee.
With most ‘Roonies waiting in the wings in anticipation of that day, freelance journalist and creative writer Tara L. Groth has produced a piece of work to tide the faithful until June - How Do You Roo? A Survivor’s Pocket Guide to Bonnaroo®.
Whether you’re a newbie or a novice, everyone tackles the festival in a different manner. Given the magnitude, it’s like no other music festival and can take weeks of preparation and recovery as it can be a 4-day marathon for the weekend.
The pocketsize guide gives a few accounts of ‘Roo goers over the years and their recommendations on camping, packing, clothing, traffic and the most valuable time management.
Like most following the rumor mill, Groth has a scope on the scene as well.
“I’ve been keeping an eye on the Bonnaroo lineup rumors,” said Groth.
“Music blogs are flooding with potential performers.”
Released only one month ago, How Do You Roo now has been climbing the charts in Lulu’s Top 100 Travel Books.
The unofficial guide is available exclusively online via www.howdoyouroo.com.
