Seriously-- I went to both last year. I happened to win tickets to Bonnaroo last minute and it was really nothing at all like Sasquatch (aside from, you know, the whole "festival" thing.)
Sasquatch is just free. That's the best way I can describe it. It's the free-est damn place in the entire universe. Bonnaroo, in contrast, is a bunch of strange mid-aged hippies and bros (not the Panda Bear kind) who are all kind of crowding in on you at all times. The camping is uncomfortable, too. Also, there's no real topographical difference from one end of Bonnaroo to the other, so you really don't get the whole breath-taking life-changing "Oh my god, there it is!" experience either. You know what I'm talking about. That feeling you get when you listen to "Return to Innocence" ? Like the sun god is blessing you with this beautiful liminal festival experience? Yeah. Doesn't happen at Bonnaroo.
sweet! those recipes look awesome. I am a serious foodie-- and one of those people who whipped out the propane grill last year for some early morning eggs and espresso, though I flew in too (all thanks to my Vancouver friends). I guess I'll just keep a stash of carrots in my backpack!
Kentucky! I didn't meet anyone from the south at Sasquatch last year, but I do have an interesting story in the thread I just started about ALMOST meeting someone from the south-- but not quite. Do you fly?
