Part 2 of Broekema's post-festival reflections contains tips on how to prepare for such a tightly scheduled, high-octane assignment. (Here's Part 1)

Last June, photographer Tim Broekema and writer Jon Waterhouse spent four explosive days at Bonnaroo getting photos and sound recordings to make audio slideshows telling insider stories. Neal Cohen of Superfly Presents had asked Soundslides to partner with Bonnaroo. He believed audio slideshows would tell the best Bonnaroo  stories because they can be very expressive and match the Bonnaroo vibe. Also, Soundslides is super easy and quick, making them cost efficient to produce and get online.

Afterward, Broekema wrote up some thoughts about the whole crazy process. Since another amazing festival, Burning Man, is happening this week in Nevada's ... Read the full story

NY Times - Audio Slideshow

The audio slideshow recording can be as powerful as jazz

Bonnaroo camping audio slideshow: How do Bonnaroovians sleep, play, eat?

There's no story flab here.
Every quote in this story is helpful, colorful, interesting — from the tooth-brushing Bonnaroovian in the beginning, to the guy who brought a blow-up sofa to the festival grounds, to the girl living in a big international camp with 175 other campers and a couple of Bonnaroo-ready chefs.
How did Tim Broekema and Jon Waterhouse find these stories and make this audio slideshow about life beyond the stages at Bonnaroo?
