The Pink Octopus – Burlesque Design, Bonnaroo, 2006



Artist: Burlesque Design
Type: Festival Poster
Print: Silkscreen
Size: 19 x 25
Event Date: 6.16-18.2006
Venue: Bonnaroo Music Festival – Manchester, TN
Unsigned, unnumbered, stamped on back

The folks at Burlesque make posters for Bonnaroo practically every year, and of those this is my favorite.

Fun fact: a couple of friends and I worked main stage security that year at the festival, so we got primo spots for this concert, and I can tell you that of the six Radiohead shows I’ve been to, this was the best. They played everything we wanted to hear and then some. It was a magical few hours. For that reason, this pink octopus is burned into my memory.
