Rose-Colored Filters: The Best Instagram Pics From Bonnaroo!

Why do memories always feel like we're looking at them through a pair of rose-colored glasses? They always glow more strongly, sparkle more brightly, and look as if they were produced by Oprah's Emmy-winning lighting director — especially when you're comparing them with the digital camera pics of the event.
Thank the lord for Instagram, then, because the app documents the moments we want to remember with the same kind of artistry as our nostalgic brains whip up. This past weekend's Bonnaroo festival was the perfect venue for an Instagram blitz, and we dug through our feeds to bring you the very best camera-phone snaps. Click through to see for yourself, if the shots measure up to your memories.
