THE OTHER MANCHESTER SCENE
the fashionable masses descend on bonnaroo
Kings of Leon, Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, and the Flaming Lips had the headline spots, but at Manchester's (Manchester, Tennessee, that is) Bonnaroo, there was plenty of action offstage, too. The four-day fest, once the style laggard of the summer music schedule, is now attracting a pretty sharp crowd. Need proof? Check out our roundup of the best of the scene. Partiers dressed up the usual festival standards—mud-friendly boots, cutoff jeans—with of-the-moment pieces like maxi skirts, graphic tees, and statement eyewear. And, yes, a few dreads. Hey, it's still Bonnaroo.
