Bonnaroo Artist | Creature Comfort
Bonnaroo History | Newbie
Stage & Time | Saturday | New Music On Tap Lounge | 2:45pm
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 2017 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-reccomened 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!

With its newly adopted format, the annual Road to Roo competition now produces just one single winner, and we’re thrilled that this year’s champions, who had to compete in a month-long, bracket style battle of the bands competition to earn a spot at Bonnaroo, are none other than longtime site favorites Creature Comfort. Most of the band grew up near the site where Bonnaroo takes places, making their festival debut all the more fitting, though they didn’t formally come together as Creature Comfort until college, releasing their well-received debut, Fox Tales, in 2013.
Now an integral part of the local rock scene, the spaced out, psych tinged, poppy, energetic, and eclectic indie rockers dropped their latest EP, Echoes & Relics, last year, after a big of a hiatus, and with their refreshing sound and genre-bending sensibilities, continue to wow us with each performance. There’s always some great local talent on the Boonnaroo bill, but no other band had to fight their way through multiple rounds of judges and votes to get there- believe the hype, and make Creature Comfort’s Saturday afternoon set a weekend priority.
