The 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival came and went over the weekend, and for those of you who didn't make it to Manchester, Tenn., to take it all in, we present some highlights from the 11th annual gathering in this small collection of pictures. Dozens upon dozens of acts performed at Bonnaroo 2012, but the following pictures stood out to us because of their subject matter, their visually stunning manner of capturing said subject matter -- or perhaps just because they looked pretty damn cool. That's always a good reason, right?

While perusing these Bonnaroo 2012 pictures isn't quite the same as attending the festival, it's still a pretty good way to take in some of the fun. So, without further ado, here are five of our favorite pictures from Bonnaroo 2012.
