Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.

    Its sad to see the owner of this campground trying to copy so many of the ideas that made Rothbury unique. The Forest, the festival, the hammocks. For my money I would rather just wait for Rothbury the original to return in 2011, or attend one of the many other great summer music festivals that are already up and running. See you all in the forest in 2011.

      We are seriously bummed that Rothbury got canceled. The Sherwood Forest is the best part of summer!
