MEDICAL EMERGENCY SERVICES
WHERE: In the Main Venue the Medical Emergency Services tent is located near the bleachers. There are two Medical tents located in Centeroo: one located to the left of the Ferris Wheel and one located between the Cinema Tent and This Tent. Also, each campground POD has medical staff on duty 24 hours a day, so look for the balloon.
Lots of things can happen on The Farm: bee stings, arm-wrestling injuries, faces rocked off while dancing. That’s why the Main Venue, Centeroo and every POD is home to a Bonnaroo medical tent, staffed around the clock with Bonnaroo medical staff. For your safety, the medical tents area is all staffed with licensed professionals. The Centeroo medical tent is staffed with nurses and physicians, and a roaming medical staff is always on duty in the concert venue.
In an emergency, if you’re not near a medical tent, find a staff person with a radio, or notify the nearest security personnel so that they can get you whatever help you may need.
WHERE: You can find our safety staff roaming through every campground, at every POD, at the entrance to Centeroo and the Main Venue and at all the stages, as well as throughout all of Centeroo and the Main Venue.
Our safety (aka, security) staff is trained to help make sure everyone has a good time and stays safe. If you have a security issue in the campgrounds, each POD has a security station open 24 hours. Mounted security patrols (yes, on horseback!) roam the campground areas at all times and can assist as well. Lasso one if you need help.
All vehicles will be searched on entry to the festival at the Toolbooths (which you should definitely keep in mind when deciding what to bring). And prepare to be (politely) searched each time you enter Centeroo or the Main Venue. Find out what you can and can’t bring in here.
HEALTH TIP: If you’re not sure whether it’s an emergency, assume it is and get help right away.
Please don’t buy from unlicensed vendors. We work hard to ensure all official food and drink is good and safe. And really, if you buy something from an unlicensed vendor, you have no idea what you’re getting. There is lots of great stuff to buy from official Bonnaroo vendors, who deserve your business, not least because they have made a real commitment to support Bonnaroo.
EMERGENCY VEHICLE ACCESS
Our roads might not look like city streets. But for emergency and maintenance vehicles, they do the job as long as you keep them open. Which is what we ask you to do. Please park in designated areas and don’t drive around the site. Walk on the sides of the roads, and please let all official vehicles through.
A FRIENDLY REMINDER
We asked a friend named Toby (who’s been to every single Bonnaroo): What's the secret to having a good time?
He had a great answer:
“Pace yourself. Take the time to eat and sleep. Sometimes I even take a nap during the day. I also drink a lot of ‘in-between’ drinks, like Gatorade and water. Bonnaroo is no fun if you’re all burned out by day 2. Been there.” - Toby
