Yeah, I'm retired. My kids say...I say, I'm not going to Bonnaroo.
My kids said, "Oh yes you are." So here I am.
(Male Voice): Do you guys have a favorite artist?
> Not in this genre, I'll tell you that.
> But I like Kenny G.
(Male Voice): Do you expect to see somethings you've never seen before?
> I've already seen some stuff.
> [Inaudible] is going to be good. Odesza. The War on Drugs is probably
my favorite band that's playing here right now.
> You ever hear of any of those dear?
> What was the one? We're on drugs?
> The War on Drugs.
> They're not permanent.
> What's this called?
> This is called flash tattoo.
> Flesh tattoo.
> Why are you giving these away?
> 'Cause why not?
> Mine is a bracelet of course. All the girls are wearing them at the
park. So, they said I'm one of the girls.
I'm making a mess.
> I can't eat mine, I'm diabetic.
> I'm supposed to tell you a joke. I'm going to gender neutral so,
my buddy was downstairs doing the laundry, and he calls up, "Honey,
what setting do I use for the sweatshirt?"
"Dear what does it say on the sweatshirt?"
"Green Bay Packers."
> My favorite part of it was you go I want to be gender neutral.
> What are your thoughts on like rap music?
> First of all the lyrics. They're hard to understand, and when you
do understand them, you're not sure you like them.
> What would be your advice for us old folks at Bonnaroo?
> Drink a lot of water.
> Just carry a lot of water.
> Drink all the water.
> Here's to ya.
> Ok, you have to tell us, what is this all about?
> [Inaudible] Looks like everyone's listening to the same song.
So you have to turn the volume up, and just have a good time.
It was terrific, and really unusual.
> Now see, this is the way to go to Bonnaroo. Sit on the couch and watch it.
What is he doing?
> You're sleeping.
> Do you speak German?
> Well yes, I was born there.
[Speaks Foreign Language]
> What does that mean?
> I love you.
> And I do.
> You just going to hang here aren't you? Be honest.
> I hate this.
> Hello Kelsey, this is Winston, and Ted.
We're with your grandparents. This is Mumford and Sons.
They are way cheeky people. They are wasted.
> We just watched a band called Sza.
What did you think about them?
> I don't know who they was, but they blew my mind.
> And I grew up in Germany. We didn't have all this rock and roll
and crazy stuff.
> Thank you so much. Nice to meet you.
> So I guess they're going to have us get on this ferris wheel again.
> I'm not getting on a ferris wheel.
> Oh, I don't either.
> I think I need a [Inaudible].
I can't hear.
> How many of you guys if this is your first time at Bonnaroo?
> We met some people, and they've never been to a festival before,
and they seem really cool. So we wanted to bring them up, Anna, Denny,
and Isolde, and Neil.
[Inaudible] They're pushing 80 years old at the festival.
> Did I do it?
> I think maybe it's recording.
> (Female Voice): Everyone else thought we were a tad nuts to
do this, because we aren't young.
Our children and grandchildren are so impressed, that we were able to do this.
(Male Voice): How do your grand kids feel about you being here?
> They think it's great. They're jealous. They say, "We're so jealous."
[Inaudible] I'm still alive.
I'm standing to tell right?
Oh, now I smell it.
(Male Voice): What does it smell like?
> I got a whiff. I guess that it is mary jane right?
I bet you I'm higher than a kite when I walk home tonight.
