When you get to climb trees with bands at a music festival, you might say that life has gotten a little out of hand. While we didn’t find ourselves IN the tree with Jared & The Mill during our portrait session with the Phoenix-based five piece at Bonnaroo, we did find ourselves laughing while we found a fun place to photograph them amongst the trees. That, coupled with their set on Sunday and a smattering of times we ran into them around the festival, made us acutely aware of their talent.
Here are some portraits.

We started our last day at Bonnaroo sleeping in a little bit more than usual. We heard a pop up performance amongst the trees at an ungodly hour in the morning, and then dozed until it was time to wander in and catch Kikagaku Moyo‘s set. The Japanese psych band was absolutely mesmerizing, and we believe you catch a small bit of that feeling from the photos alone.

The last performance we saw before the epic set from Childish Gambino on Friday night at Bonnaroo was Courtney Barnett‘s set at THAT. She came out, fiery and forceful, and the energy kick really gave us the inspiration we needed to keep partying into the night. Highlights below.

On Sunday night, the weather was slightly sticky but with a breeze. When the storm warnings had cleared, it was the perfect night to enjoy music outside. Cue: Jimmy Eat World and Third Eye Blind, who regaled us with some of our favorite tracks during a beautiful end to our weekend. Staples like “How’s It Going to Be” and “Semi-Charmed Life” brought more energy to the crowd, of course, with the silhouette of the near-sold out audience looking ethereal against the night sky.
This is our happy place.
