Fuse News Is Taking Over the Bonnaroo Waffle House!

After hours of enjoying amazing bands, there are few things more gratifying than going ham on some, um, ham and devouring grits and hash browns until you pass out in a dizzying swirl of cheese-infused, breakfast-y bliss.

That's why this year Fuse News is covering Bonnaroo by taking over Waffle House #152, aka the beloved breakfast joint that sits right across from the festival grounds. (To imagine what it's going to look like, see the sweet artist rendering above.) On Wednesday, June 12 through Saturday, June 15, anyone in Manchester, TN, can stop by the Fuse News Waffle House, sponsored by Trident, for not only free food, but also exclusive live performances from some of the festival’s most exciting bands. 

Yup, Fuse is building a stage at the Waffle House! Stop by for sets from British dance-punk band Foals, theatrical alt-rock group Twenty One Pilots and Cincinnati indie rock band Walk the Moon.

For those of you stuck at home, special Bonnaroo editions of Fuse News will air on Thursday, Friday and post-festival Monday at 8/7c. Between bites of waffle, anchors Alexa Chung and Matte Babel will interview bands and report on the latest breaking festival news. 

Don't forget to follow @FuseTV for updates on artist schedules and tweet with  #FuseWaffleHouse.

Also look for the Fuse street teams at Bonnaroo passing out free Waffle House gift certificates to help festival-goers get smothered, covered and/or chunked. Oh and, as we mentioned above, Trident's chipping in on this one too, so even if you’re getting your hashbrowns with onions and peppers, you won’t need to worry about your breath.
