By night, you can hear them yourself as they take over the Silent Disco (Friday) and Kalliope Stage (Saturday), where they will be performing alongside some very special guests. The Red Bull Music Academy is a world-traveling series of music workshops and festivals, held in a different city globally each year. You can tune in to the best lectures and interviews at www.rbmaradio.com/bonnaroo.
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.
