Exhausted festival goers were greeted with cooler temperatures and welcome clouds on the final day of this year's Bonnaroo, June 19th, 2022. Seeing so many hard-core music fans rally for the last day after many had begun their Roo celebration as far back as Tuesday night when the campgrounds first opened was terrific. The Sunday lineup may have been the most diverse of the marathon musical gathering.

Khruangbin, JRAD, Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Elliott Peck’s Midnight North, Holly Bowling, and the Gone Gone Beyond are kicking it all off?!? The list is exciting and inviting.
