As we’ve been doing for the past several years now, we’re making it our mission to help you get acquainted with as many bands as we can from Bonnaroo‘s impressive 2016 lineup. We’ll start from the bottom and work our way up, paying special attention to the smaller and lesser known acts on this year’s bill. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Band of the Day…
It wouldn’t be Bonnaroo without psychedelic and jam bands, so it feels only fitting that this season’s first Band of the Day falls into that category, doubly so since it’s the festival’s 15th year, and it was founded on that particular scene. Hailing from the outskirts of Philadelphia, and made up of three brothers, Flux Capacitor have been building a loyal following since first forming nearly a decade ago. With three records and countless shows to their name, the trio have shared the stage with the likes of Umprhey’s McGee, Keller Williams, Dumpstaphunk, and many more! Regulars of smaller, similar fests, their sound, style, and approach make them a logical fit for this year’s Bonnaroo, and they’re sure to especially delight the long-time attendees.
Not exactly a jam band per se, but definitely harboring an affinity for jam tendencies and improvisation, Flux Capacitor accurately describe themselves as “neo-psychadelic rock.” With a tight live show, ambient and electronic influences, and positive, heady, and meditative vibes, the group have found the perfect combination of thoughtful, interesting tunes and a compelling live show. A no-brainer for a fest like ‘Roo, these guys might be at the bottom of the poster, but they should be at the top of your “must-see” list if you’re looking for an authentic summer fest experience.
