Bonnaroo’s Roo Clues ’16: Number 9


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 #9:

  • While coats can be made out of any number of materials, wool is one of the most common, and one of the finest types of wool is cashmere. A cashmere coat is a “fine coat.”
  • While “furry friend” could be vaguely applied to most any friendly animal, it usually means a pet, and one of the most popular furry friends of all are cats.
  • The answer is almost definitely Cashmere Cat. It follow this year’s on the nose hint style, and given Bonnaroo’s wealth of electronic acts in recent years, surely they’d hint at at least one of them this time around.
  • His schedule is open in June, and he’s booked for some fests earlier in the year. We’re calling it. [verdict: very likely]

Are you happy to potentially see an electronic artist who’s a little more under the radar this year?
