Bonnaroo Wraps Up in Manchester

Posted: Updated:

MANCHESTER, Tenn. -- After days of incredible musical performances, Bonnaroo fans are heading home. Sunday evening, top acts like R. Kelly and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed for thousands of fans on the final night of the festival.

This year, some 80,000 fans made their way down to the huge Coffee County festival. They got to see 150 performances over the last four days on more than 10 stages.

For the most part, people attending Bonnaroo did not had to deal with bad weather. In the past, intense heat and rain have created some big challenges.  This year, organizers hired their own weather forecasters for the event. Experts from Oklahoma were on the grounds testing new forecasting software. That testing could lead to use by other music festivals across the country.

Meatime, all the fans leaving Bonnaroo will mean some travel challenges on Monday. Backups on I-24 near Manchester are common, but experts are also warning air passengers to plan ahead. Passengers were advised to arrive early, check flight schedules ahead of time, and be prepared to run into longer lines at security.
