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 clue 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 a bonus clue (presumably bringing the total to 11) as to who you can expect to see this summer on the farm!
Here’s the Bonus Roo Clue:
DON’T BE AFRAID TO GO IT ALONE, EVEN IF YOU NEVER COULD BELIEVE
- Local favorite (by way of Alabama) Jason Isbell has a song called “Go It Alone” on 2011 effort Here We Rest.
- That same album also has a song titled “Never Could Believe.”
- While that seems too easy, even for a Roo Clue, we’re going to chalk it up and call it solved, especially since it’s a bonus.
- Jason has already announced other festival dates, is free during ‘Roo, has played on the farm in the past, and is a local favorite, more renowned now than ever; this is definitely happening. [verdict: inevitable]
It’s been a huge couple of years for Jason Isbell; are you happy to see him back at Bonnaroo?
