J. Cole Friday at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival - Photo Credits: Roger HoFriday had a small bump as thunderstorms moved in around noon for a brief period of time with very little to no rain, and were soon gone and led way to a beautiful and slightly cooler Day 2 on the farm with very little impact to scheduling.  WFMC Jams had the privilege to interview several artists throughout the day including Tennessee artist Briston MaroneyThe 502s (Ed, Jake, and Matt), New York artist Karina Rykman, and Whiskey Myers.  Later in the evening J.

Sunday at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts FestivalSunday was a day to remember, realizing we escaped the rain and experienced a memorable weekend reuniting with friends.  WFMC Jams had the pleasure of talking with Jesus and Adam from the band Lettuce and members of the Toronto, Ontario band Wild Rivers. The final headliners for this year featured Machine Gun KelleyRoddy Rich,and the grand finale Stevie Nicks at What stage.  Stevie fully embraced the positive vibe from Bonnaroo patrons and shared stories in between songs about her life and the ones that have influenced her the most.  She did not leave the stage disappointing, as she performed an encore paying Tribute to Tom Petty performing "Free Fallin'", Rhiannon, and Led Zeppelin cover "Rock and Roll". -- View more Bonnaroo photos and Highlights from Sunday.
