Intimate ‘Café Tents’ at the Bonnaroo feature up-and-coming artists

Along with being a yearly gathering for huge names in rock and roots like The White Stripes, Ben Harper and The Flaming Lips, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is a place to discover new talent as well.  In the Bonnaroo Café Tents, fans can check out artists like steel guitar player, Rocco De Luca from the Kiefer Sutherland co-owned independent label Ironworks Music and Jagjaguwar’s twangy, art-rock act, Favourite Sons. 
Superfly Productions and their Bonnaroo Music & Art Festival are changing the way American music festivals are run by not only offering a diverse roster of artists but also putting together a ‘round-the-clock event that is just as eco-friendly as it is entertaining. This year’s festival will feature headliners The Police, Tool and Widespread Panic as well as non-music attractions including comedy performances by David Cross and Lewis Black, a brewing festival and film screenings.
