Greatest Festival Moments in Rock and Roll History: Bonnaroo 2009

Festival Moment

Phish with Bruce Springsteen at Bonnaroo, 2009

The sheer diversity of talent at the Bonnaroo festivals created unique opportunities for one-time pairings. Phish, no strangers to the festival scene, understood these opportunities better than anyone. They invited Bruce Springsteen, who had headlined the night before, to join them, unannounced for several songs. The bridging of musical styles and generations was the perfect embodiment of the Bonnaroo vibe.
