Bonnaroo History | Newbie
Stage & Time | Friday | That Tent | 1:30pm
As we’ve been doing for the past several years now, we’re making it our mission to help you get acquainted with many of our favorites acts from from Bonnaroo‘s impressive 2018 lineup. As we dig through the entire schedule, we’ll highlight a spread of performers spanning across genres and stages, big and small, new and old, to bring you some of the most interesting, lesser-known, or most highly-recommended among this year’s crop of artists. Though we’ll be jumping around, we’re loosely working our way through by day, and we’ll also be bringing you some special features and longer guides along the way, to help you plan your weekend before the fest. While these previews won’t span every performer, and might omit some more obvious must-see acts, we hope they’ll serve as a way to help you navigate Bonnaroo’s gargantuan lineup, and to make the most of your busy weekend on the farm!

Manchester, England’s Everything Everything hail from the same off-kilter, pop-soaked, artsy indie rock cloth as peers and fellow UK acts alt-J, Django Django, and Glass Animals. Formed in 2007, the former schoolmates and longtime collaborators sought to craft something with r&b and future-thinking influence, rich with social commentary and an intention to widen in scope and style over time. After enthusiastic buzz from critics and fans for their early singles, the band nabbed a major label record deal and released their debut, Man Alive, in 2010, to mostly widespread acclaim.
They’ve remained prolific ever since, with three more full-lengths, a handful of EPs, and worldwide touring to their name, best known in their native Europe, but steadily becoming a more global fixture like some of their aforementioned peers. Firmly rooted in the rock sphere, the band have honed a mathy, synth-drenched, nostalgic aesthetic, with fresh and ambitious songs anchored by social and political discourse, especially on more recent records Get to Heaven and last year’s A Fever Dream. Equally as compelling live, the band’s long overdue outing at Bonnaroo is a compelling reason to get your Friday afternoon going early.
