The Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival went down this weekend in Manchester, Tennessee. You will surely see and hear plenty about it all over the internet, but here are a few tidbits of recapitulation: Kanye West turned in a totally Kanye-esque performance, Skrillex put an absolutely nutty superjam of music, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and Elton John all put on great performances, and after the fest, Deadmau5 renounced the festival genre in an interview. Check it all out at Consequence of Sound, Billboard, and The Standard, respectively.
