Metal Lungies is headed back to the farm for Bonnaroo 2012.

It’s that time again where ML frantically packs for the voyage to a farm an hour outside of Nashville. It’s where 100,000 or so attendees get their faces and ears melted off from 4 days of music, comedy, and film.

If you aren’t fortunate enough to make it to Manchester, TN, Youtube has got you covered this year again on the Bonnaroo Channel (click for schedule & more info).

ML will be sharing the Bonnaroo experience through our twitter feed, and instagram.

Each year just going through the schedule seems like a daunting task, ML is here to help where we share some of our picks. Check them out after the jump. When you aren’t checking out acts, take a moment to check out the food trucks area, which has stepped up its game for 2012.

On last years preview we mentioned our essential/minimalist packing list, this year we’d like to make one addition: Emergen-C packets/Vitamin C.

One huge thing of note is The Brothers Rosenthal aka Its The Real are like the official interview dudes for the festival.. and they are even performing live their upcoming mixtape (!!) Urbane Outfitters. (Check the preview here).

Thursday again serves as the appetizer for the main course that runs Friday through Sunday. Thursday is just chock full of rappers & rockers that we’ve even interviewed (back in ’08, even!).
