ok so my girlfriend cant make it this year due to school and having a late test on friday afternoon and then one on monday (pharmacy school). so this is my 3rd roo but have never looked around for it. i have been to a couple of other music festivals and have seen autograph tents and was wondering if roo does anything like this? I would love to get her a autographed my morning jacket poster or something? if there is one could you also tell me where it is located on the farm. or if anyone have experience on how to get autographs at bonnaroo would be a great deal of help. thanks in advance sorry if there is already a thread on this. i did a search and could not find anything

i think in the sonic village there is a CD/t-shirt hut and that is where artists do signings. I have a buddy working the CD part. if you see a 40 year old summers breeze in a sac with frosted tips say hi to timmy.
Does this still exist? I would love to get an autograph from Sea Wolf.
They did it last year. The usual schedule is that whoever just played on the Sonic Stage goes to sign autographs at the tent after their set, but that's not 100% by any means. Sea Wolf is pretty realistic for someone who could play a Sonic Stage set, but we won't know for sure until the schedule comes out.
In addition to the signings at the Sonic Stage (which will be on the schedule), they also have a charity silent auction in the market area. The items there are usually more big-ticket such as signed posters and guitars and stuff. You might have a shot at a MMJ or other headliner-caliber artist item there, though these items often run hundreds of dollars. (Sometimes much more.)

I got to meet Ben Howard at the autograph tent last year, I can't say I'm all about autographs but getting to shake the hand of one of my favorite musicians made my Roo so much better...plus the guy who I was with is one of Bens BIGGEST fans. so getting to see his reaction was one of those special you can't really explain moments. It was right next to the Sonic Stage and was super easy to get in line for. We just showed up like 10 min before he was there and were one of the first people there. Never even considered going until I saw his name though. Very cool Roo moment for me

The one issues I have had in the past about the autograph stuff is SOMETIMES they make you buy something of theirs for an autograph/photo-op. Can get pricy if there are several artists you want to meet.
