Bonnaroo Music Festival
Imagine 700 acres of land in the middle of Tennessee, filled with thousands of eager concertgoers camping, singing and dancing to more than 150 musical performers for four days of non-stop entertainment. That was the pipedream of four college graduates just over a decade ago. In 2002, the four members of Superfly Presents, who shared a deep love for all thing’s music, put on the first-ever Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. To say that it was a success would be a drastic understatement. Cheap Bonnaroo tickets sold out within two weeks and Rolling Stone immediately called it "the most ambitious festival of the year." By the following year, the internationally recognized magazine of music had also named the event one of the top 50 moments in rock and roll history. The term "bonnaroo" came from New Orleans R&B singer Dr. John, who popularized the Creole slang word, which means "a really good time," with his 1974 album "Distinctively Bonnaroo." The festival's founders chose the term to celebrate their love for the Louisiana music culture they experienced and enjoyed throughout college.
Newcomers and Legends
As one of the largest music festivals in the U.S., Bonnaroo celebrates both up-and-coming artists and music legends, as well as comedians and talented performers. With a focus in the grassroots rock genre, the music event of the summer also features a variety of bluegrass, jazz and electronica. In addition to music, 24-hour entertainment in the form of comedy shows, yoga classes, arcades, movie screenings, endless food venues and even a microbrew festival are part of the true 'Roo experience. Over the years, the center stages of Bonnaroo have seen their fair share of internationally renowned musicians. Some of the most impressive musicians of all time, including James Brown, Neil Young, and Emmylou Harris, have performed. Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Kanye West and Bruce Springsteen have each made an appearance at the festival. Other past notable headliners include Pearl Jam, Metallica, The Police, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Phish and The Dead. In 2016, Bonnaroo featured more than 150 performances.
