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.

Eva Gilliam: making great audio slideshow profiles of people
