BONNAROOVIAN CODE

Behold the Code. No one wrote it. It just always was and now it is. It just kind of evolved within the Bonnaroo Community over the years, out of the real-life experiences of hundreds of thousands of Bonnaroovians. We pulled it out of the air finally put it down in writing. Follow it and you’ll make the most of your Bonnaroo adventure and possibly even help change the world (in a good way).

BONNAROO TERMS
 

BONNAROOVIAN A person that has had their mind blown by the full Bonnaroo whammy and has a great passion for finding and celebrating good stuff.


CAMPGROUNDS The primary Bonnaroovian habitat where happy campers live, sleep, and play in blissful harmony like it’s permanent recess. This area stays open day and night, even if Centeroo and the Main Venue are on siesta.


CENTEROO The festival nucleus. Here you’ll experience a cornucopia of music, food and fairly priced craft vendors. Centeroo is home to Which Stage, That Tent, This Tent, Comedy Theatre, Cinema and the Other Tent.


PODS Think of these as Bonnaroo community centers located throughout the campground. From medical assistance to vehicle issues, lost friends, relationship advice or concert and activity schedule info.  POD Ambassadors and medical/safety staff are available 24/7 here to lend a helping hand in your campground community. Each POD has a designated number which floats above it on a large balloon that can help you navigate toward your campground from a distance.


SUPERJAM A Bonnaroo tradition that brings artists together to collaborate in a one-time, thrilling performance. Like Bonnaroo itself, y’never know what can happen.

THE MAIN VENUE The area immediately adjacent to Centeroo. It’s where the What Stage has lived since the dawn of civilization. Please note that due to its extreme age, this area has different waking hours than the rest of the festival.


THE FOUNTAIN While its appearance morphs, yearly, the fountain is a perpetual source of happy times. Whether you’re using the 60-foot lighted fountain as a refreshing coolant for your systems or as ocular stimulation (aka eye candy) you are enjoying it exactly in the way it was intended (which is to say however you like).


TOLLBOOTH We have three General Admission entrances or “Toolbooths” as well as a VIP Toolbooth for VIP ticket holders. In order to get everyone in as quickly as possible, we carefully balance the number of vehicles coming into each Toolbooth.


THE ARCH The portal or gateway into the hallowed grounds of the What Stage.


​WRISTBAND This fabric document is your magic passport during the festival that will allow access between Centeroo/Main Venue and the campgrounds as often as you please. However, all of its magic disappears if you take it off, lose it or accidentally consume it at snack time.​
