My Bonnaroo Day: Al Schnier

moe.’s Al Schnier arrived at Bonnaroo today for a Sonic Stage performance and then made the festival rounds. He documented his day for the Beacon, which as you’ll see, was suffuse with Elvis. moe. performs today at What Stage from 5:30-7:30. Prep for their set by reviewing Al’s Bonnaroo Day.

My Bonnaroo Day: Annabel Lukins

Annabel Lukins, mistress of the Sonic Stage has to stay on her toes. Not only does she need to keep the action flowing with little turnaround time but typically this is the artist’s second set of the day. Thankfully she can turn the world on with her smile. Enjoy Annabel’s Bonnaroo Day

My Bonnaroo Day: Evan Winiker

Steel Train bass player Evan Winiker arrived on site Thursday around 2PM and he made the most of it. A radio appearance, a ring sighting and some late night busking were all part of the story (which continued as we closed out the Beacon, with Evan and the band still out there playing somewhere between Camp Serge and Camp Ferris Bueller). Be sure to check out Steel Train at the Sonic Stage today from 5:45-6:15PM and then on Saturday at This Tent from 1:45-2:45. As for now, enjoy Evan’s Bonnaroo day
