Bonnaroo has to be spring’s chillest music festival — with four days of musical acts, art installations and more spread over 700 acres, you’ve got to pace yourself.
Not this year, hippies. Founded in the spirit of Woodstock and Phish’s legendary jam sessions, 2017’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is making more room than ever for some newer genres. The festival, which will take place June 8-11 at Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee, is launching an all-night party on a brand new open-air stage dubbed The Other.
Because Bonnaroo's previous Other Tent just couldn’t hold them anymore, the biggest names in dance, electronic and hip-hop music like costumed EDM star Marshmello, “instrumental livetronica” group Big Gigantic, Dutch DJ San Holo and more will take over for an epic set that will go all night, according to organizers. Bring your water bottles and sneaks to make sure you last as long as the beats do.
Spanning 13 stages, Bonnaroo will feature over 130 performers led by Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Weeknd and, for their first time at the festival, U2 will perform a special set celebrating the 30th anniversary of their 1987 album “The Joshua Tree.” Ticketsare on sale now starting at $210.50.
