This past weekend (June 10-13), over 250,000 music-lovers gathered in Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee to experience one of the most widely-celebrated annual arts festivals of this generation. Superfly Productions' "Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival" is a glorious, round-the-clock, four-day venture, featuring bands of all genres including rock, hip hop, country, electronica, and more. This year, Neon Indian, Against Me!, and The Postelles, joined the lineup, performing songs from their latest Lodge-mastered releases.
