  1. That girl’s name was Amber Lynn Stevens. She was my best friend and I hope that all of the emts that were there that woulnd’t help my best friend live die and go to hell. She is no longer with us beacuse of u. They did not know how loving she was and how happy she was. She loved everyone. She had such a big heart. today I had to stand in front of all of our friends and family and have a memorial for my best friend. My daughters god mother.

  2. I was there and it was the emt's fault the girl died at bonnaroo. I didnt know about the other death of the man with the heart problem butI was there when the medics wouldnt give the poor girl cpr or narcan or anything except mean looks. B@st@rds and crooks. then the next day the safety staff tried to shake me down for non-existent dr(_)gs they were convinced I had. I dont know if Im going back next year after that.

  5. I was at Bonnaroo this year, and I have been there the 2 years before. And I must say, I am horrified at the 2 deaths.I too dealt with the medical staff which was the exact opposite of what has been said. The attention being paid was less than adequate- there shouldnt have been anyone dying and when someone was there should NOT have been a medical staff scowling and ignoring. This could have been prevented. I am so saddened that the environment and energy has changed so intensly. This is a weekend I anticipate year round and leave feeling life has changed. This year when I heard Brandon and Amber had passed, I could think of nothing but that amidst the 3 days of heat and music and love- or lack there of, 2 people werent leaving with that experience. My heart and my family's, who was also there who feel this saddness with me, goes out to their families and friends.
