Saturday brought a sense of familiarity, with AP favorites Kevin Devine and The Bouncing Souls featured in prominent afternoon slots. Cake, Grouplove, Cage The Elephant, Damon AlbarnELEL, Zedd and The Bots also helped make for a memorable afternoon, before headliner and festival standout Jack White ruled the evening. Once again, the late night performers shined, with unbeatable after-dark sets from The Flaming Lips and the legendary Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, as well as a SuperJam curated by Skrillex.

Between running from stage to stage, we stopped to chat with Kevin Devine, The Bouncing Souls, and brother duo The Bots.

A foil to Thursday's sense of winding up, Bonnaroo's final day always carries the feeling of winding down. The bill was still stacked, however, and Fitz And The TantrumsCapital CitiesArctic MonkeysBroken BellsCity And Colour, and The Griswolds helped us bid farewell to our weekend in the best possible way. 

We took Sunday as a chance to sneak in a few more interviews, chatting with favorites Fitz And The Tantrums and getting to know Australia's The Griswolds.

We also added a few more answers to our lightning Q&A round, which you can watch below. 2014 was one of Bonnaroo's best years ever, and a true testament to what makes it such a special festival.
