Today, Bonnaroo reveals the initial lineup for the 19th annual edition of the internationally acclaimed four-day multi-stage camping festival set to take place June 11 – 14 at Great Stage Park, the spectacular 700-acre farm and event space located just 60 miles southeast of Nashville in Manchester, TN.
This year, Bonnaroo is selling more tier 1 priced tickets, giving fans an even better chance at getting the best prices. The festival has incorporated many more changes and upgrades to the Black Friday sales event this year as well.
The final day of Bonnaroo 2019 dawned bright and sunny and was the first scorching day of the festival. Rain clouds threatened the countryside throughout the day, creating a sweat-drenched humid environment sending festival goers to watery refreshment. Many concertgoers were beginning to show signs of fatigue after four nonstop nights of partying. People could be seen passed out in shady spots all across Centeroo throughout the day. But another day of incredible music revived many in the crowd.
The third day of Bonnaroo 2019 dawned bright and beautiful with a near perfect climate. Some young bleary-eyed EDM music fans were wearily returning to their campsites after an all-night dance party. Meanwhile, other festival goers were waking up to sunrise yoga sessions and organized runs. The smell of coffee and doughnuts baking lingered in Centeroo.
The organizers of the Bonnaroo music festival have done a remarkable job in recent years of booking relevant new music from multiple genres including, E.D.M., Hip Hop, and Pop music. The result has been to attract a vibrant multi-generational audience. But the festival has wisely continued to offer more traditional music as well, offering up Country, Rock, and most importantly Jam bands, sticking to its roots while simultaneously expanding the musical genres offered.
After a downright cold and sometimes chaotic night during the opening of the Bonnaroo campgrounds, the festival began to run much more smoothly as the gates of Centeroo opened just after noon on Thursday, June 13th. Partly cloudy skies gave way to an unseasonably pleasant and chilly afternoon as many of the 80,000 people attending the sold-out event swarmed into the concert area. Bonnaroo has become a virtual gathering of musical tribes from different generations.
A serene sky dotted with fluffy white clouds greeted a massive sold-out crowd that flooded into the Centeroo grounds on the second day of Bonnaroo 2019. Live music began just afternoon while many concertgoers started to enjoy all the festival has to offer. Amenities included waterslides and the iconic Bonnaroo fountain as well as a Ferris wheel and a whole range of activities in the campgrounds.
A small army of music fans descended on Manchester Tennessee during the early morning hours of June 12th for the 18th annual Bonnaroo Music Festival. Many gathered at the nearby Walmart to stock up on supplies and met other concert goers. Some arrived Tuesday night and set up tents in the parking lot waiting for the grueling process of being screened to enter the festival when the gates opened Wednesday night.
