Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has been host to a variety of music performers, thousands of attendees and has been revered as a premier music festival since its inception in 2002. Having started as a tribute to Louisiana music traditions, the festival has become the heavy-weight champion festival of the summer season. In 2019 the festival sold out, selling a fair amount of tickets in a special pre-sale even before the lineup was announced.
The level of entertainment at Bonnaroo is not easy to match as the lineup includes over 150 musicians, ten performance stages and four campground party barns… ensuring something to suit everyone’s musical choice. Even more exciting is the additional activities which include parades, Yoga-roo, painting, the Eighth “First Annual” Roo Run 5K, and interactive art installations.
As the largest camping festival in the U. S., 2020 will be a year of improvements for festival attendees which includes easier campground entry (on a first come first serve basis) and additional camping options (darkroom dome tents with AC and close to The Grove). A new GA+ ticket choice includes Centeroo lounge with AC bathrooms and plenty of shade, bars, and vendors. Revamped VIP and Platinum ticket offerings include a new VIP campground layout with close entry to the venue, more showers, restrooms, a dedicated vehicle entrance, and new access to the Artist Lounge. Even the stages have been redesigned with The Which Stage getting a full makeover. Further, The Other Stage improvements will include additional production upgrades including more lasers, more fire and other enhancements that will be revealed at the festival.
Perhaps the most impressive offering is the decision to have The Other Stage, which hosts Electronic Dance Music performers, play all night long until the break of dawn. I can’t wait to experience my first adventure on the farm.
Don’t miss out on this unique festival with so much to offer. Bonnaroo is being held June 11-14, 2020. Tickets are currently on pre-sale here.
