UPDATE!  Congratulations to Michelle who was our lucky winner of the City Pages contest by sharing her following festival story.  We had a lot of great contributions and thank everyone who entered!

“So many memories from Bonnaroo 2011, but the experience that stood out the most was me and my pal’s anticipation of Gogol Bordello. The band was playing at around 1:00 am, The heat during the day was sweltering so we had hiked (over an hour) back to our campsite for a nap at around 11:30pm, we had both slept through our alarms and woke up at 12:50am in a panic. Me and my fest mate shot out of our sleeping bags, pounded two Hamm’s apiece, and hopped on the Bonnaroo golfcart taxi. We made it in time to experience the wildest gypsy punk rock dance party ever, the community of people at Bonnaroo is something I’ll never forget.”

    • I went to Bonnaroo in 2006. I waited in the heat all day to be up front for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Amazing show, with some 100k people behind me – when they turned flood light onto the audience, you could not see the end of people, from where I stood. When he sang Last Dance with Mary Jane, you could hear the crowd singing over Tom Petty, which is something i have never witnessed before or since that show. The entire performance was unbelievable. Crazy, fun weekend.

  2. I went to Bonnaroo in 2004 and saw Bob Dylan and DMB back to back! I eventually made my way up to the first row and then had to go to the Bathroom and get something to eat so I left my friend and went on the adventure. Upon trying to return to my spot, I realized the show was about to start and all of the lanes back to my spot had closed up. So I did the only thing I could do, give away pieces of my pizza to the people who wouldn’t move so easily until I made my way all the way back to my friend! I will always remember that experience!

  3. My favorite festival moment would have to be seeing doomtree at rock the garden. I have never seen them but from the energy that the crowd was giving it was an experience I would never forget. I even remember the guy next to me saying “put up your butterfly symbol, they love them”. Such a great time. 🙂

  4. One of the most memorable moments at a music festival was Rock the Garden 2013 Metric’s set. The whole day was just an awesome build up to see them perform. I had managed to get in the front row after slowly moving forward during and between the music. The weather had cleared up from the rain earlier in the day and was perfect as the sunset over downtown The sound system sounded amazing. Good vibes were in the crowd. Emily Haines sounded exactly like she did on her album. I danced my b*** off the whole time and at the end came out sweaty and exhausted… always a good sign when you see a show. I wish I could relive that day over and over.

  5. Ozzfest ’98, Somerset, WI. I’m 15 and wandering through the crowd during Megadeth and they suddenly stop mid-song and Dave Mustaine points out a woman atop someone’s shoulders in the crowd and says “Holy sh**, look at the size of those f****n t**s!”, moments later they resume the song. It was pretty damn memorable for a 15 year old.

  7. We took the kids to Rock the Garden at the Walker Art Center in 2008. It was so fun to share great music with them!

  8. My most memorable outdoor music experience has to be when I was 12 years old and saw traditional methods and heiruspecs at loring park. That was my introduction to hiphop and great local music. I will always remember that moment an bring that up. Just amazing.

  9. The rough times some bands experience was evident when we were at a Moondance Jam in Walker several years ago. We watched a 9 legged band Tesla perform a terrific blues set. Followed by the 9 armed band Def Leppard. The next day as we walked in from the campgrounds was the 9 eyed band Kansas. GOOD TIMES!

  10. I don’t recall having been to a real music festival. So this would be my first. Getting VIP tickets would make my 1st experience the best it could be.

  11. Last year I went to Shangri-La Music Festival at Harmony Park in Geneva Minnesota. I went with my Mom and Sister and had so much fun walking around meeting new people and listening to the music. It was a wonderful family vacation! Welcome Home 🙂

  12. I was last year and i intend to be there again 🙂

  13. I suppose my favorite festival moment would have to be my first! It was a free festival that I don’t believe emis around anymore, but I was something like 8 and went and saw smashing pumpkins with my dad! We got so close I thought the speakers were pumping my heart!

  14. my favorite festival moment was the first summerset, in the dance arena, dancing my butt off to Mat Zo. Nothing interesting ever really happens to me at festivals and it doesn’t have to! I’m just there to enjoy the music and the sunshine 🙂

  15. For me it’s the first year at Summer Set. The amazing music of Mat Zo, Infected Mushroom and finishing with Pretty Lights! So amazing!

  16. Early ’90’s, we thought we had tickets to Elvis Costello at at Alpine Valley. We arrived on an Idyllic summer day and Cowboy Junkies were the first band. Ms. Timmons forgot the words to the second verse of “Sweet Jane” and waned the band to start over, they played on. New Bohemians were next, still young and hungry in the era of the top ten jam band. Mr. Costello rocked out some “Veronica” era blues rave-ups, but the highlight of the night was the wild card: Lou Reed was supposed to be on the festival tour, but broke his leg. ‘Sconsies own Violent Femmes filled in and Blistered the Sun immaculate.

  17. I haven’t been to a music festival in such a long long time. I lived in Colorado and the most memorable would be Lilith Fair or Lollapalooza at Fiddlers Green. That was before marriage and kids.
