Last June, photographer Tim Broekema and writer Jon Waterhouse spent four explosive days at the Bonnaroo music and art festival gathering material for audio slideshows that reveal what festival life is like for the thousands of Bonnoroovians every year. When Neal Cohen of Superfly Presents asked Soundslides to partner with Bonnaroo, he said he wanted a software that was super easy to use and quick and cost efficient to get online.

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)

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?
You decide, and tell us your best guesses in the comments section below. We won't know for sure how they did it until the four-day festival ... Read the full story

First Bonnaroo Soundslides audio slideshow captures the vibe

Who was first in line?  What were people saying as the flowed through the gates at Centeroo:

“It’s like summer camp for grownups…”
“This is probably my favorite place in the world….”
“The Amish homemade donuts…It’s the first thing I want to see.”
“The hype is taking over my body.”
The people are incredible!”

Thanks, photographer Tim Broekema and producer Jon Waterhouse!

What is Bonnaroo?

What is Bonnaroo?
Some may not know, although thousands (millions?) around the world do know. Bonnaroo is a four-day music and arts festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee near Nashville. This year, the festival is going on right now until June 17, and it’s sold out.

When you checkout the lineup, it’s easy to see why people zoom to Bonnaroo every year. This year, the festival is partnering with Soundslides to show people what the festival is like off-stage in the super-fun, super-lovely, laid-back environs of the farm.

We’ll post the audio slideshows as ... Read the full story

Counting down to Bonnaroo!

Bonnaroo starts tomorrow, June 13, and we're excited to have one of our best Soundslides experts on the ground, photographer and Western Kentucky University professor Tim Broekema, along with writer/producer Jon Waterhouse, to capture the atmosphere of this wild festival with audio slideshows. (We'll post them here!)

As he was packing up to head out this week, Tim riffed a little for us on why the audio slideshow works so well for Bonnaroo, and what he's facing as he goes into the heady (and fun) action of the next four days in Manchester, Tennessee.
