Bonnaroo 2009

Bonnaroo 2009: The night man cometh from Forest Woodward on Vimeo.

MGMT, Girl Talk, Passion Pit, Portugal. The Man, Crystal Castles, Public Enemy, People Under the Stairs, Cage the Elephant, Chairlift, and more in this photo/video montage.

A big thanks to the guys at Superfly for inviting me out to help shoot the festival

During the day the masses sleep off hang overs of all shapes and forms. The sweet sounds of Al Green and Bon Iver filter in through the shade and sunlight of the half awake but wholly content festival goers. Dusk brings the crackling energy of another Tennessee thunderstorm, and with it the stirring anticipation of the night. Families wander back to tents, while the leaders of the night's revelry stumble out, primed and ready. Flashing lights. Sweat. Bodies. Crowd Surf. Good Vibrations. Ecstasy. Claustrophobia. Euphoria. Panic. Glow Sticks. Mud. More Sweat. This Tent, That Tent, The Other Tent...follow the pulse.
