The Bonnaroo Cinema never fails to deliver. Another great lineup!
The band that brings the party!
Playing Pop, Rock and Dance

steve b May 2, 2013, 16:46:28

yea, lets all go to a festival and watch tv… LAME

Purple Star May 3, 2013, 10:40:25

Hmm hey Steve, I guess there’s not times when a band is not playing (Hmm I wonder who’s playing at 6am???), or possibly a time when there’s not a band playing that you care to see or maybe there’s never a time one might like a little bit of air conditioning, or a few minutes break from the sun without going the long walk back to your tent in the camp grounds. Gosh Steve, I’m glad you’re here to tell Bonnaroo and it’s attendees how LAME they are for offering variety and a break (for the above mentioned reasons). Or possibly you’ve never attended a festival. Or wait, I’ve got the best suggestion yet for ya Steve, if you don’t like it…don’t go!

Bonnaroo Varity May 3, 2013, 11:42:34

Give me a “S” – Stay at home Steve!
Give me a “T” – TV? Uh no Steve, it’s a Cinema!
Give me an “E” – Excuse not to go to Bonnaroo because they have a cinema and people will attend.
Give me a “V” – Vehemently opposed to the Cinema and variety, why?
Give me an “E” – Especially “LAME” post!
Give me a “B” – hmm Bonehead? Nahhh, B is for Bonnaroo Cinema!!!! What that’s spell? STEVE-B! What’s that spell? STEVE-B What’s that spell??? STEVE-B

Guys, being a little hard on Steve….he seems like a nice guy, hope to meet him at the Cinema…

Bonnaroo Variety May 3, 2013, 12:00:20

I doubt you’ll run into him at the Cinema chocodog.

Follow the Sunshine May 3, 2013, 12:04:36

I don’t think they are being to hard on him chocodog. Seems to me like they are just having a little fun with yet another “hater” on these threads. Does everyone have to be such a hater? Honestly not everyone is, but I think Purple was right on the money with his post. Hopefully he gave some insight to steve b on whey there is a cinema.

I agree, Bonnaroo cinema is key.
Last year, while coming down from all the drinking and what not, I went and watched “Marley” till the wee hours of the morning.
That’s an epic memory I have of last year.
