While touring the Bonnaroo grounds on Thursday to see how the set-up process is turning out, I met Queen Andrea. You are probably scratching your head thinking, “She is not really a queen is she?”
While Andrea von Bujdoss is not actually royalty, she is known as the queen of graffiti. Because of her artwork, she is called Queen Andrea. Evidenlty, the graphic designer from New York, learned from some of the most prolific old school graffiti writers in our era.
The New York based artist was chosen to design and paint a massive water feature on the 700-acres that make up Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee. Her design, complete with black lights at night, will be in the round watering basin where concert goers will cool off during the heat of the event which takes place June 11th through the 14th.
Each year, the festival brings in about 100,000 visitors from as far away as Japan and as close as Nashville. This year, some of the big names include Billy Joel, Mumford and Sons, Ben Folds and even Slayer.
