Descending each year on the otherwise quiet farm in Manchester, Tennessee, Bonnaroo touts itself as more than a music festival -- it’s a whole way of life. The Bonnaroo experience combines world-class live entertainment with a dizzying array of arts, food, and other activities, all under a constant atmosphere of radical inclusivity and a commitment to sustainable social initiatives. Take a cooling dip in the famous fountain or drool over (and indulge in) the best donuts you’ve ever had, all while wandering from stage to stage and taking in some of the best concerts you’ve ever seen. And with its many camping options (including special sections for RVers), you can relax in comfort at the end of a long and perfect day of bouncing around Bonnaroo.
For that one June weekend, this otherwise-empty, bucolic landscape transforms into a veritable city; you won’t have to worry about leaving to find food, water, or any other last-minute needs. On-site amenities include food vendors dishing out everything from delicious spicy pizza pie (trust us, you want to try it) to hand-dipped Amish donuts and more. There’s also ample vegan fare, so no worries on that front. And, of course, plenty of beer.
Bonnaroo is held annually at Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee, also lovingly referred to as “The Farm.”
