LG Electronics USA brought the first-of-its-kind “LaundROO Lounge and Vintage Clothing Swap, Powered by LG” – a place for festival goers to refresh their style, as well as their mind and body. Complete with 50 washing machines and dryers, festival attendees were able to drop off their clothing for a wash ‘n’ fold for FREE, as well as swap out party clothes in their vintage shop. “With Bonnaroovians spending most of their days out in the hot, muggy weather and fields, creating a sweaty, dirty mess, clean clothes are essential,” stated in a recent press release. #GetDirty was the motto.

Mavis Staples brings the message of freedom to a crowd at Bonnaroo on the Which Stage. Read the full story from Anthony Merriweather here.
“Bonnaroo was properly introduced to a relatively new act signed to Eminem’s label on Saturday night. Starting the show with “I go by the name Anderson Paak.” Many may not have known who Anderson Paak was or why he was playing the main What Stage Saturday night, but they do now. Working the crowd of tens of thousands into a frenzy with his unique blend of Motown, gospel, hip-hop, and R&B, he was a fitting choice to begin the events of the evening at the main stage. He went so far as to end his show, not just with his debut album hit “Come Down” but also by taking part in an audience member’s marriage proposal. Bonnaroo clearly said yes to Anderson Paak … and so did she,” writes Craig Holcomb.
