About This Spot
Set on the 700+ acres of Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN, Bonnaroo is a four-day festival that draws 80,000 fans every summer. Featuring over 150 musical performances, along with comedy, cinema, sustainability workshops and more, the grounds are converted into a virtual city of music and art. The legendary event began in 2002 as a remarkable idea to serve a passionate fanbase, and ended up becoming the premier multi-day concert destination of the summer which dynamic and eclectic programming paved the way for the age of the great American music festival. Bonnaroo has now evolved into becoming much more than just a concert destination; it has become a cultural touchstone and, for two generations of music fans, a rite of passage. It’s cultural impact has been so profound that it was cited as “One of the 50 Moments that Changed the History of Rock and Roll” by Rolling Stone magazine.
