I will forever remember seeing Jack live. The feeling I had there in the pit was what I feel true bliss is. I've never felt happier than I did surrounded by all of those people. You could feel love in the air that night.
Also another moment that meant alot to me was sitting in front of one of the tents waiting for Empire of the Sun to start while Billy Idol was playing and I was exhausted. As I sat on the ground being nearly trampled by people every 10 seconds this extremely sweet woman suggested I scoot back to avoid being run over, and at that moment I felt like that was the nicest thing anyone had ever done for me. When I got up to leave I thanked her and I will always remember her.
This was my first Bonnaroo so there were so many amazing moments.
Arriving Wednesday and impatiently waiting until Thursday afternoon to kick things off with Twenty One Pilots. I remember all the white balloons rushing in from behind us and just knowing it was on for the rest of the week.
Walk The Moon's speech before I Can Lift a Car.
Passion Pit singing Sleepyhead and realizing that after listening to all of these songs for so long I was finally seeing them live.
Paul McCartney in general!
The xx playing Crystallized and their silhouettes fading in as the howl went off in the beginning of the song.
The Sun coming up during Pretty Lights' set.
Frank Turner completely blowing my mind and talking about the true meaning of rock and roll at the end of Photosynthesis.
Jack Johnson putting together a 2 hour show, learning a Mumford and Sons song, and performing a song about the whole experience in one day.
Crowd surfing to Empire of the Sun.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros bringing a guy on stage who just recovered from Leukemia and then parading to a smaller stage for an extra set.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers rocking the guitar like no other.
What a week. As soon as it ended, the countdown to next year began! Can not wait!

This was a nice moment for me as well. I forgot all the stakes for my tent and ez-up, so I was holding onto a bit of anger about that, and when he talked about just "letting everything go" I had to smile, and it was a nice to carry those words into the rest of my night/weekend.
