|Drawing inspiration from some of the most popular music festivals of years past, Bonnaroo kicked off for the first time in 2002. Since then, the event has grown by leaps and bounds and attracts some of the biggest names in the music industry. Buying Bonnaroo music festival tickets offers music lovers the opportunity of a lifetime.
The festival comes to Manchester, Tennessee, every year in late spring, and despite the often hot temperatures, hundreds of thousands of fans come from across the country to take part. Its first year, tickets sold out in a matter of weeks, and it has only grown in popularity since then - and it's easy to see why. The event has something for everyone. While it may have started with a focus on jam bands and alternative music it has vastly diversified its lineups in the years since. Today, fans can expect to see everyone from Jay-Z and Eminem to Dave Matthews Band and Radiohead - all of whom have headlined Bonnaroo at one point in their career.
Bonnaroo has more to offer attendees than music, however. There are numerous tents spread throughout the campgrounds including the popular silent disco tent, as well as the comedy tent, which attracts many famous acts year in and year out. Don’t just buy a ticket for a concert; buy a ticket for an experience that you will never forget.
