Take out the celebrities, pool parties, manicured lawns, and heel-friendly walkways...and what do you get? A music festival that's more about the music than anything else. Bonnaroo may not be known as glamorous, but that didn't stop you all from putting some effort in looking as magical as you felt during the shows (let's be honest — real Refinery29-ers know it's more effort to not put in effort). We sent our intrepid photographer Guang Xu down to Manchester for the weekend to take in the tunes and shoot a few snaps of the best-dressed Bonnaroonans who made the trip to Tennessee.
