For the fourth year in a row, BMI presented three of Nashville’s best indie bands at Bonnaroo as part of the organization’s Road to Bonnaroo contest, co-sponsored by Nashville’s Mercy Lounge, the Nashville Scene, and the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Alanna Royale, Ranch Ghost, and Ri¢hie performed energetic sets at the New Music on Tap Lounge brewed by Miller Lite on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the four-day music festival.
