Post I Converted from Bonnaroo to Wanee
I have been to Bonnaroo 4 times in a row 2007-2010. Missed 2011 because of money problems, missed 2012 and 2013 because the lineup was lackluster. The lineup for 2014 downright sucks! Wanee has the vibe that Bonnaroo used to before they sold out to mainstream MTV crap. Thank goodness for Wanee, my new home!

"Old Folks at Home", by Stephen Foster, 1851[4]

Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
Far, far away,
Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.
All up and down de whole creation
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.

All de world am sad and dreary,
Eb-rywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home!

All round de little farm I wandered
When I was young,
Den many happy days I squandered,
Many de songs I sung.
When I was playing wid my brudder
Happy was I;
Oh, take me to my kind old mudder!
Dere let me live and die.

One little hut among de bushes,
One dat I love
Still sadly to my memory rushes,
No matter where I rove.
When will I see de bees a-humming
All round de comb?
When will I hear de banjo strumming,
Down in my good old home?

Thanks Rivernole! This will be my third Wanee, almost as many Wanees as Bonnaroos.

Congrats on making the switch! I did 2 Bonnaroos, years apart and can't say I'd ever go back after the 2nd one. I've done all of the Wanees except one and hope never to miss another one. The place is truly magical and the friends you will meet there are the best kind. As for the song, I am NOT a fan past the first line. I won't get political, but the syntax and banjo strumming darkeys are enough to offend even the most mild of "colored folks" and I am as easy going as it gets. You won't hear me say much more on this one, but there it is.

Yes, I too was a ROO. There are still many here as well. It just got to big to enjoy and Elton John and Kanye West just don't fill my heart like the music here. And there are not enough trees at the ROO for me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I love Elton John, he was the first concert I ever went to at age 8. Saw him again in '99. So nothing new to see there. The only band I would be really stoked for at Bonnaroo this year is Umphrey's McGee and they are gonna be at Wanee!!!

Wanee is a way better venue, the trees are awesome. Unlike Bonnaroo where there are 3 trees I think.
