Bonnaroo’s Roo Clues ’16: Number 1


Bonnaroo‘s annual lineup guessing game, Roo Clues, is currently underway, and, similar to last year, it seems that they’ll all be Instagram-based word games (a definite shift from past years with real-life scavenger hunts and elaborate riddles, but we’ll take it). In total, ten clues are set to drop, likely two per week, and will provide hints as to who we can expect to see at this year’s fest. Once again, we’re putting our expert sleuthing skills to work, and doing our best to solve each and every one. After the jump, check out who you can expect to see this summer on the farm!

Here’s Roo Clue #1:


  • The internet seems to think the answer is Blood Orange, and we very strongly agree.
  • Blood is typically red, but if your heart is yellow, red and yellow would mix to make… orange.
  • “Blood” and “orange” keep with the “heart” aspect of the clue.
  • Blood Orange, the live alias of British singer Dev Hynes, currently has spots at NC’s Moogfest in May and at a UK festival in July, but is wide open for ‘Roo and would be a great fit.  [verdict: very likely]

Sounds like we are almost definitely going to be seeing Blood Orange on the farm this summer!
