Sky lanterns have been a part of festivals and celebrations around the world for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Wishes are often written on the lantern before being released into the night sky. This year, Bonnaroo is introducing a fun, new way to send off your wishes. Using the official Bonnaroo app or website, festival-goers will now be able to make wishes anytime and anywhere. Think of it as a better way to make your wishes come true - hint, hint.
