Rolling Stone says: “For the second year in a row, Bonnaroo is giving thanks and celebrating the holidays with an hourlong special called A Very Bonnaroo Thanksgiving. Comedian Jo Firestone hosts the cozy, quirky celebration, which is now available in full.
Over the course of A Very Bonnaroo Thanksgiving, viewers can see clips from 12 performances that took place at this year’s four-day festival, including exclusive footage of Alabama Shakes’ passionate live take on “Don’t Wanna Fight,” Twenty One Pilots’ intense “Heavy Dirty Soul” and Mumford & Sons’ guest-assisted cover of “With a Little Help From My Friends.” D’Angelo, Robert Plant, Brandi Carlile and Belle & Sebastian are also featured in the special.
Between performances, Firestone handles her many Thanksgiving guests, which includes a slam-dancing pilgrim. Shots of Bonnaroo fans also pepper the breaks between performances.”
