M.I.A. is TRYING to get that baby to swagga on out…she was due today!
Whew, we just got all of the tourists out of town from the annual CMA Music Festival, and now Nashville is the last civilized stop on the way to Bonnaroo- the Woodstock of today, held just south of here in Manchester. TN. Bonnaroo, which began in 2002, has become one of the most successful music fests in the world. There are approximately 80,000 people camping and grooving all weekend long. This year, there are again some FAB performers including Kid Rock, Jack White, Metallica, My Morning Jacket, Vampire Weekend and a rare appearance by M.I.A. to name a VERY few.- you can read all about it here! Also, Concert from Stereogum is blogging about the Bonnaroo moments you wish you’d seen live! UPDATE: Pearl Jam performed an unprecedented 3 hour set last night. Ben Folds and BB King also gave the masses a treat along with many more awesome acts. Tonight will wrap up with Death Cab for Cutie, Robert Plant and Allison Kraus among others. And you thought Nashville was all about the country. Pshaw.
