The days are longer, the sun is brighter, and kids are out of school for the next few months. You know what that means? Festival season is officially underway. LED Shoe Source supplies people all over the country with fly kicks and music festivals are the perfect place to show off your coolest gear. With that being said, the next major music festival on the agenda is Bonnaroo in Tennessee. This year’s edition features headliners U2, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Weeknd, and Chance the Rapper. The lineup as a whole features some of the world’s most famous EDM acts too -- including DJs like Major Lazer, Flume and Marshmello -- and we can’t help but be excited about making the trip to Manchester, TN.
With its 15th anniversary coming up, it’s a cool time to look back on the festival’s inception. Formed by a group of friends who’d been deeply influenced by the festivals at Coachella, as well as the stories behind Woodstock and the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, Bonnaroo was a labor of love that has modernized the format made famous by the hippies and the Summer of Love music festival first took place in 2002 and has been a fixture of the festival circuit ever since, combining a love of indie rock with a keen eye for the standout artists in a variety of other contemporary genres.
Not to be stopped at just providing the musical experience of a lifetime, Bonnaroo also offers a number of tents for festival-goers to check out, featuring dozens of activities and local vendors. Aimed at being environmentally friendly, the festival keeps the spirit of the Sixties alive for a modern audience. We hope you can find your way down to Coffee County in Tennessee for the music festival that Rolling Stone named one of the “50 Moments That Changed Rock N Roll.” If you do, make sure to wear your LED Shoes from LED Shoe Source to make sure you grab the attention of all your fellow Bonnaroo family.
