The annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival took place this weekend in Manchester, Tennessee.The lineup this year was one for the ages, with big-name acts like Radiohead, the Red Hot chilli Peppers, Mac Miller and Ben Folds.

For all of you stuck in the office during the festival (or anywhere else, for that matter), we’ve compiled some pictures of the festival so you can (almost) feel like you were there.


Around 90,000 campers traveled to Manchester, TN, on Thursday with tents, water and sunscreen to see over 150 epic performances. Mark Foster and Foster the People played Friday.

Bonnaroo held its eleventh festival this year. It began in 2002. Ludacris took the stage on Friday.

In case you're not familiar with Manchester, it's a small city (population: 10,000) 60 miles southeast of Nashville. Das Racist performed Saturday.

The festival took place on a 700-acre farm. 20-year-old hip-hop artist Mac Miller took the stage Sunday.

At this year's Bonnaroo, there were performances scheduled around the clock every day (with a few breaks for sleep and showers). Alice Cooper rocked out on Saturday, donning spider legs for the performance.

But there wasn't just music at the festival. There were a few comedy shows, a circus burlesque show and even a beard and mustache contest. James Mercer soothed the crowd Sunday as lead singer of The Shins.

Rolling Stone also named Bonnaroo one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock & roll. Bon Iver performed Sunday, led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Justin Vernon.

The Beach Boys were one of Bonnaroo's most anticipated shows. They performed on Sunday as a part of their 50th anniversary tour.
