Bonnaroo 2010 Stays Mostly Irrelevant to Metalheads

Superfly and A.C. Entertainment recently announced that the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has added several artists to the 2010 event, but I thought I'd highlight the few heavier bands on the line-up:

Clutch
GWAR
Isis
Baroness
Circa Survive
Rise Against
Les Claypool

You really have to be a general music fan to appreciate a festival like Bonnaroo, so diehard metalheads need not bother. The full Bonnaroo 2010 lineup can be found here. The music festival takes place on Thursday, June 10 through June 13.

Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Phish, Jack Johnson and other top artists are donating their music to encourage Americans to speak out on climate change. Organized by the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, HeadCount and the NRDC Action Fund, this collaboration marks the first time free music has been used to prompt Americans to contact their elected officials.

Best of Bonnaroo, a compilation of 17 different live performances from the festival (unfortunately none of the heavier ones), is available for free at www.Musicforaction.org.

Yeah wow, I remember when Bonnaroo was a raging liberal hippie fest. 400,000 whiny a-holes spreading filth for hundreds of miles in Tennessee.

It seems to me that Isis, maybe Clutch MIGHT sway a couple of them, but Gwar? I hope Sleazy P. Martini comes on and immediately starts insulting everyone...more than he usually does. And I'd be delighted to see them behead nothing but hippies the entire show. Awesome.

Well, its not meant to be relevant to metalheads. Its a festival, and festivals (minus metal festivals) have a wiiiiiiiiiiiide variety musical genres represented. I, for one, would love to go to Bonnaroo, and see the few bands I would want to see, and just walk around and soak up the vibe! OH, and enjoy the "candy"!!!!!!!

If I wanted to I could probably make the trip through KY to go to this...but I f***ing hate hippies, and there really aren't enough bands to make it worth the trouble.

Wait...I just reread that. This festival is being held to help take action against climate change? How much electricity does it take to power a festival, anyway? In the midwest electricity generally comes from burning coal, a byproduct of which is CO2. Not to mention the tens if not hundreds of thousands of people who will be driving hydrocarbon burning vehicles to travel there. f***ing idiots.
