2015 Bonnaroo Music Festival


Bonnaroo 2016

  • Art Cars

    Big Red:  Kalliope’s "Little Brother" art car serves as an adorably oversized grand marshal of this boisterous Walter clan, and will throw a serious dance party wherever he goes. 

  • Kalliope

    Thanks to our friends at The Walter Show, Kalliope is back again with even more explosive fun! Rage into the wee hours of the night with its 70,000 watts of bass-ful bliss and an unforgettable light show filled with pyro cannons, fire, lasers and aerial beams. This stage is your discovery hub for electronic music talent and unannounced performances.

  • The Fountain

    The Bonnaroo Fountain is one of the festival’s most iconic structures. Each year since its build in 2003, we have selected an artist or group of artists to redesign and repaint the structure, creating a brand new vision and experience for Bonnaroovians. Located in the heart of Centeroo, The Fountain serves as both a way to cool off from the hot Tennessee sun and as a great meeting point. And once the sun sets, black lights transform it into a whole new wonder!

  • The Arch

    Come on in! The Arch has long been the entry point for most campers into Centeroo, and is a sight to behold each festival season. This year, David Korins Design (the same team behind the amazing top hat arch of 2011, the sparkly green arch of 2014, and more) has dreamed up another magical monument, ensuring your entrances will be grand all weekend long!

  • The Tower

    Stay tuned for exciting updates to this beloved campground beacon!

  • The Grove

    In the midst of 700+ acres of farmland lies an oasis; a refuge from the whirlwind that is Bonnaroo...The Grove! There will be times when The Grove explodes with radiant energy, and at other times, a place for solitude and’ll just have to stop by and find out.

  • Camp Over There

    “Hey! What’s Over There?”

    We’re so glad you asked! Be sure to give a wacky, weird, and wonderful welcome to your newest neighbors at Bonnaroo. The epitome of Small Town Americana, the folks from Camp Over There are ready to shower you with the kind of down-home hospitality customary to their slightly out-of-touch traditions. But it's not all pom poms and mom jeans Over There. Come nightfall, their old-school rules give way to the subversively strange, the outlandishly outrageous, and the excitingly eccentric. We ask that you, the open-minded, brave-hearted, and delightfully-distracted, keep your eyes peeled for the surreal before it disappears like a dream. Camp Over There might be looking for you.

  • Snake & Jake's Christmas Club Barn

    The Snake & Jake's Christmas Club Barn is back to celebrate Christmas in June! A tribute to the legendary New Orleans watering hole, this one-of-a-kind establishment will feature lights, reindeer and at least one creepy Santa. Check back for more details about the wild and crazy programming in store!


  • Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp

    The Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp also returns in 2015 and will include public lectures from renowned musicians, special performances from national participants, and daily broadcasts on

  • Splash-a-Roo

    Splash-A-Roo is your saving grace during peak daytime hours when the heat waves are beaming down. Take a slippery ride using loony pool floats on the 35-foot tropical slide or play it safe on the practice slides and in the kiddie pools. Want to take it up a notch? Pay a small fee for your screams on the 40-foot Big Ass Water Slide. For more fun in the sun, get your bump-set-spike on at the sanded pick-up volleyball court. Resist the urge to stay dry and bring a waterproof camera.

  • Solar Stage in Planet Roo

    For the ninth year, Rock the Earth presents an eclectic schedule of music, dance, environmental speakers and interactive entertainment including yoga and other wellness practices. Be sure to check back for the Solar Stage schedule and start planning your visit to Planet Roo. A special thanks to Tree Power & Sound for four great years of providing power for this stage!

  • The Silent Disco
    The Silent Disco

The Silent Disco is a unique Bonnaroo experience, so make sure to join and bust a move to the hottest dance beats – broadcast directly into your ears.

  • New Music on Tap Lounge brewed by Miller Lite

    Straight from 1975, these classic rockers invented the lite beer genre. So, grab your crew and come hang out with some fresh, original music and the original lite beer. It’s happening all day and night at the New Music On Tap Lounge brewed by Miller Lite (next to the fountain in Centeroo).

  • Bonnaroo Poster Art Exhibit

    Following in the tradition of the inspired poster makers of the ’60s, Bonnaroo and The American Poster Institute join together to showcase the work of some of today’s most relevant poster makers. With clients including some of Bonnaroo’s biggest headlining bands from past and present, these designers, illustrators and professional magic-makers illuminate the gap between music and art in a stunning display of craft, technique and skill. Come check out the limited edition hand screen posters, chat with these select artists from all over the nation and even pick up a poster to remind you of the spectacular, unique experience that is The Roo. You can find the American Poster Institute right across from the official Merch tent in the Bonnaroo Market. Past artists include Methane Studios, Lil’ Tuffy, Furturtle, Status Serigraph, Powerhouse Factories, Dan Grzeca, and Boss Construction.
