We love music at We Are Neutral, which makes partnering with Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival an extra special experience for us.
During the festival, you can find us in Planet Roo educating festival-goers about carbon offsets and retrofits, but when the sun goes down, we head into the crowd for some musical bliss.
Here are some of the artists our team is most excited to see at Bonnaroo this year!
While Pearl Jam’s heyday may have been in the 1990s, the band has solidified itself as a quintessential American rock ‘n’ roll band in its 25 years of existence. Songs like “Alive,” “Yellow Ledbetter” and “Jeremy” have stood the test of time, and the band still puts on some of the best rock concerts in the world. Fun fact: Pearl Jam is dedicated to the environment, teaming up with various organizations over the years to minimize its carbon footprint.
Father John Misty
Between solo albums, working with Fleet Foxes and even providing music for Beyonce’s latest album, Joshua Tillman’s musical resume is no joke. Under his current pseudonym, Father John Misty, Tillman maintains the traditional indie, folk-rock style that’s made him so successful. We can’t wait to hear him play songs like “I’m Writing a Novel” and “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings.”
Darling of indie-dance LCD Soundsystem is making its way to the farm for the first time since 2010. The James Murphy-led project disbanded in 2011, but reunited this year for a string of festivals and a new album later in the year. Until the new release, we’re perfectly happy getting down to songs like “Daft Punk is Playing at My House” and “Dance Yrself Clean.”
Aside from the fact that Hundred Waters makes beautiful, ethereal music, we’re always happy to see an act represent our hometown of Gainesville. Signed to electronic music giant Skrillex’s OWSLA Records, the trio has made a big name for themselves in the past few years with tunes like “Murmurs” and “Show Me Love.”
Third Eye Blind
Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good, old-fashioned ‘90s sing-a-long, which makes Third Eye Blind’s performance especially exciting for us. The group that brought us classics like “Jumper,” “Semi-Charmed Life” and “How’s It Going To Be” is playing late Sunday, the perfect way to wrap up our time at Bonnaroo.
