Bonnaroo happens on June 11th - 14th in Manchester in Coffee County, Tennessee. Tickets are still on sale.
In a few short years, Bonnaroo has quickly become one the U.S.'s biggest and best festivals. Set on a 700 acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, it's the playground of the cool kids and the hippies, at the same time, on the same field.
Bonnaroo organizers 'bought the farm' in 2007. A statement on the Bonnaroo web site said "As you may have heard, we have purchased a major portion of the beautiful farm where Bonnaroo takes place each year. We are very excited about the opportunity it will provide us to improve the festival for years to come. We now have a permanent home in Manchester and look forward to seeing you there every year during Bonnaroo time!"
