Bonnaroo 2010 and the BP Drilling Disaster

Recently, I had the pleasure of leading an amazing crew of GRN volunteers to the Bonnaroo Music Festival in middle Tennessee. Bonnaroo, which is in its 9th year, draws over 80,000 people to a huge field in rural Tennessee for a weekend of sweaty camping, great music, and an incredible festival atmosphere. Bonnaroo has also made a major commitment to hosting an eco-friendly festival – including inviting groups like GRN to set-up booths in “Planet-Roo” and get attendees involved in protecting our environment and communities.This year, our crew had an awesome weekend talking to thousands of festival-goers from around the country and world about the BP oil drilling disaster and how they can help protect the health of the Gulf of Mexico. It was truly inspiring to meet people from all walks of life and many, many different places who all shared a commitment to helping the Gulf region get through this difficult time. One of the questions that we had for festival-goers was: What do you have to say to BP CEO Tony Hayward? Check out the slideshow below to see some of their answers (warning: some people expressed their feelings in rather strong language).
