Bonnaroo Silent Disco Artist Profile: Passion Pit

By: Silent Events

Published: Thursday, June 6, 2013

Passion Pit’s most recent album “Gossamer” peaked at Number 4 on the US Billboard 200 chart and was one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2012. Riding high on the success of their second full-length album, the group will perform a DJ set at the Bonnaroo Silent Disco from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM on Friday, June 14 followed shortly thereafter by a full band performance on the What Stage from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

What began in Boston in 2007 as Michael Angelakos cutting a handful of songs as a Valentine’s Day gift for his girlfriend, Passion Pit is now a quintet making its rounds on the festival circuit (Bonnaroo, Hangout, Coachella, Austin City Limits), performing on Saturday Night Live (see clip below) and NPR, and seeing its music included on the hit HBO series Girls and in a Taco Bell commercial.

Passion Pit has certainly made a name for itself in the music world and will be a highlight of the second day of Bonnaroo, both at the Silent Disco and on the What Stage. We are excited to be working with these guys and hope to see you Friday afternoon.
