June 15, 2007 6:45 PM ET

Rolling Stone sent a crack squad down to a massive cow pasture in Tennessee to soak up the sixth annual Bonnaroo Festival, which kicked off yesterday, but is just beginning to heat up. So far, the National and the Cold War Kids> and Kings of Leon have delivered intense sets to throngs of sweaty fans.

The highlight as of now: This morning we sat down with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, who kicked off Friday by joining the Nashville all-lady bluegrass group Uncle Earl and will play later tonight in the annual Super Jam alongside Ben Harper and Roots drummer ?uestlove. In true Bonnaroo fashion the trio has yet to rehearse. Said JPJ, "I haven't even met them yet." Check back here every day for up-to-date Bonnaroo coverage.
