Bonnaroo is an annual music festival held each June in Manchester, TN. The festival generally ranges from around 60-80,000 drug hungry frat boys and high school students searching for some American Dream...

...but they'll probably just find this guy.

Just The Facts

  1. Bonnaroo has been the premiere high-profile music festival in the United States since its inception in 2002.
  2. Bonnaroo has acts from a wide range of musical genres, including bands such as: Metallica, Phish, The Dead, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Snoop Dogg, Kanye (my middle name is "publicity disaster") West, and even Animal Collective and Neon Indian.
  3. Bonnaroo ticket prices are slowly increasing each year. By 2020 ticket prices are estimated to be $700, a college diploma and a mandatory organ donation.
  4. Bonnaroo is "weak sauce" and you should just go on Phish tour.
  5. Yes ladies, when you bathe in the Bonnaroo fountain, those local creeps (who all get free tickets) are looking at you.

Thoughts on Bonnaroo

While at Bonnaroo you should drink and eat as many free samples as you can. Those were normal brownies right?

In between waiting in line for an open port-a-john and eating 5 dollar slices of cold pizza, you may catch some really great music. Bring Toilet Paper!

With the sun beating down at around 100 degrees, it can be funny to watch tripping people argue over what little shade space is available. Make sure you wear a wide brimmed hat,

Oh yeah, very important: watch out for Hari Krishnas. They will sneak up from behind and try to "give" you books that they really want donations for. Very weird.

Sometimes there will be jams with very strange pairings of musicians at Bonnaroo.

It can get very dusty and hot at Bonnaroo, so be sure to drink alcohol heavily and take plenty of drugs, otherwise you may die.

Tool set

How the else do you expect to survive this kind of onslaught? Thats right, more drugs!

Whoa The White Stripes are sooo trippy bra.

This is typically what you will spend most of your time watching (or avoiding) while at Bonnaroo.
