The iconic Bonnaroo ferris wheel overlooking Centeroo.
Since its inception in 2002, the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has become one of the most iconic large-scale music festivals in the world. Spanning four days and featuring more than 150 artists on a dozen stages, Bonnaroo attracts an audience of 80,000 each year to a beautiful farm in Manchester, TN for a unique and unparalleled festival experience. Featuring many of the finest and most legendary artists in rock’n’roll, Bonnaroo’s musical offerings also include bluegrass, jazz, folk, country, reggae, blues, electronica, hip-hop, Latin, African, and beyond. Past performers include Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Elton John, The Police, Radiohead, Jay-Z, Metallica, Stevie Wonder, Widespread Panic, Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon, and more.
In addition to unforgettable musical performances, the heart and soul of Bonnaroo is a 100-acre village, Centeroo, which buzzes around the clock with a kaleidoscope of entertainment attractions and activities, including art installations, a comedy club (with past performances by Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Reggie Watts, & Louis C.K.), movie theater, street performers, silent disco, arcade, beer garden, technology village and a wide array of food offerings and shopping opportunities.
Known for its peaceful, community vibe and nearly flawless, high-level operation, plus its unrivaled entertainment options, Bonnaroo continues to set the standard for the modern rock festival. Its 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.
