Sold-Out Bonnaroo Kicks Off Thursday In Manchester
MANCHESTER, Tenn. – About 80,000 music fans have camped out at the 700-acre farm Manchester for the first day of Bonnaroo.
There are more than 150 bands and performances scheduled through Sunday.
Gates opened at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in hopes of alleviating traffic concerns along Interstate 24. The weekend is sold out.
Bonnaroo has made changes inside the festival this year. Bermuda grass was planted all over the site to keep people comfortable. More shade stations have been added with lots of water to stay hydrated.
Bonnaroo features several venues, including Centeroo, the What Stage, Which Stage, and a Comedy Tent.
The event attracts all genres of music artists and fans. This year features bands like Fish, Radiohead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and even the Beach Boys.
