- NEW! The Grove
In the midst of 700+ acres of farmland lies an oasis; a refuge from the whirlwind that is Bonnaroo...The Grove! For years, this wooded area has remained a desolate and uncharted piece of land on The Farm, existing only in its shadows. This year, for the first time in Bonnaroo history, we're inviting everyone to come experience this immersive environment filled with illuminating lights, spacious soundscapes and hammock seating. A sanctuary for art installations and surprise performances, there will be times when The Grove explodes with radiant energy, and at other times, a place for solitude and relaxation.
Visit The Grove in Pod 7 behind The Grind - look for it on your festival map!
- 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.
