July Talk by Randy Cremean

words & photos by Randy Cremean

Believe it or not, Bonnaroo Thursday used to be the most chill day of America's most laid-back music festival. It got off to a late start and an early finish. Thursday was the deep breath before a headlong plunge into deep waters. No more. The first day of Bonnaroo is now packed with an amazing variety of up-and-coming artists. For the fan with an itch to see everything (or professional photographers), you can easily catch 15 different sets.

Standout acts for the day were The Orwells, Mondo Cozmo, July Talk, Hippo Campus and Welles.
