Friday morning at Bonnaroo 2022 dawned hot and steamy like the preceding days. Many hardcore music fans were just getting ready to fall asleep in the muggy conditions. Then in mid-morning, clouds began to darken the sky, and the threat of thunderstorms shut down Centeroo for several hours. The blustery storm dropped a short downpour before quickly departing, and temperatures at the festival finally began to cool into more moderate summertime conditions.
