Now that Bonnaroo is approaching two decades on the scene, it’s the kind of festival that has collected a lot of urban legends over the years. If you’ve gone at least a few times, you’ve probably heard some of them. The Roonicorn, the poop truck exploding, various stories of Chance the Rapper hanging out in the campgrounds, even Cherub playing behind a row of portapotties.
One of the more famous urban legends was actually seen by many back in 2016. It was approaching sunset on Sunday evening, and in the middle of the What Stage field sat an old red pickup truck with a few guys chilling in the back on a couch.
It seemed like the sort of thing that perhaps exhausted or inebriated Roovians had only imagined. But it actually happened. Roovian Blake Adrian was the legendary man who pulled off the stunt, and we tracked him down on Twitter to tell the tale.
Blake and a few other people were quick to tell us that the red truck did get impounded with some of the local Manchester authorities. While it was an amazing stunt that will be remembered by generations of Roovians, it was admittedly a stupid one that likely caused more problems than it was worth.
That said, Blake, you are still a damn legend.
