SEE YOU NEXT YEAR
JUNE 8-11, 2017

Bonnaroo 2016

Camping Information

GENERAL ADMISSION CAR CAMPING PASS

NEW FOR 2016

Every car, truck, SUV, mini van or other standard vehicle will need a Car Camping Pass in order to enter the Tollbooth into Bonnaroo 2016. This pass will cost $59.75 plus fees per car, not per person, so you can save money and reduce your carbon footprint by carpooling.

If you have purchased into one of our specialty programs; vip, groop camping, rv oasis, le bon tents (formerly tent city), rv, and rv + companion, then a program specific hang tag is included with your order which will allow you to enter the campground.

NOTE: If you are not camping, do not need your car for the weekend, or are parking just for the day, you MUST have a Car Parking Pass to park on-site. Upon arrival, one of our parking staff will direct you to the Car Parking Lot.

GENERAL ADMISSION CAMPING

The General Admission (GA) Campgrounds OPEN at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, June 8, 2016. And CLOSE at 3:00 PM on Monday, June 13, 2016.

GA Camping is included in your festival ticket price if you are not bringing a vehicle. The GA Campgrounds are divided into sections by streets (east-west) and avenues (north-south), like a mini city. Each GA Campground section is whimsically named on the festival map so you can find your way home and tell people where to find you. The GA Campground has an area for RV camping, but you’ll need to buy a GA-RV pass in advance (think of it like a GA wristband for your RV).

Once your car is parked, you can sit in it, dance around it, or jump over it, but don’t move it unless you have to. If you must exit in your vehicle during the event, please read the Re-Entry Policy. Once the Tollbooths open, the GA campgrounds will stay open throughout the festival so you can always get to your vehicle and your campsite.

Unfortunately, it isn’t possible for everyone to camp right next to Centeroo and the Main Venue. Your campsite could be as much as a 20 or 30 minute walk. We promise you’ll meet interesting people and see fascinating things along the way.

PODs, or community information and service centers, are located throughout the campground. Locate them on your festival map or by the numbered and colored balloons tethered overhead. Each POD is staffed 24/7 by a Bonnaroo Ambassador, and equipped with an Info Booth, Community Message Bulletin Board, Medical Tent, Security Station, toilets, and hand washing stations.

ACCESSIBLE CAMPING

The Accessible Camping and Accessible Day Parking areas are reserved strictly (very strictly) for patrons with mobility disabilities. A state-issued accessible parking license plate, placard or hangtag is required to use these areas. No reservations are needed. The Accessible Camping and Accessible Day Parking areas are close to the main Centeroo entrance. For more info, check the Bonnaroo Access Guide.

GROOP CAMPING

Again this year, Bonnaroo is offering a limited number of Groop Camping packages which allows your group (24 people or more) to book in advance and enjoy the luxury of camping with your friends without the chaos and hassle of planning, meeting up beforehand and entering together. Arrive at your leisure and still be able to camp in your own private little world.

Groop Camping is close to Centeroo and the Main Venue, and it will have life’s basic necessities like showers, portable toilets, and wash stations as well as dedicated staff to make sure you get to the correct group space.

A minimum of 24 people in your Groop are required in order to purchase a Group Camping package. A Groop Camping package does not include tickets to the festival. All Groop Camping participants must purchase a General Admission (GA) ticket.

Please note: you will not need a Car Camping Pass if you choose to participate in Groop Camping.

Learn more about Groop Camping here

VIP CAMPING

The VIP Campgrounds OPEN at 7:00 AM on Thursday, June 9 2016. And CLOSE at 3:00 PM on Monday, June 13 2016.

The VIP campgrounds are located close to Centeroo and the Main Venue. This camping area is for those who have purchased VIP tickets. Each pair of VIP tickets allows access for one vehicle through an exclusive VIP entrance into the site. RVs are welcome in VIP camping, but you’ll need to buy a VIP-RV pass in advance (think of it like a VIP wristband for your RV). For full VIP ticket information and to purchase VIP packages. click here.

Like its name suggests, it comes with perks. Such as? Brand new bathroom and shower buildings in the VIP campground and an exclusive VIP lounge located in the VIP campground and in Centeroo - lounges include complimentary wi-fi, gaming areas and a live video feed of festival performances.

VIP ticket holders also get exclusive viewing areas for the What and Which stages, and a commemorative Bonnaroo merchandise package, including two Bonnaroo t-shirts and two Bonnaroo posters. VIP tickets do not include meals, but there is an optional food/meal program which can be purchased in advance with your VIP wristbands. This isn’t college cafeteria food - it’s VIP after all!

TENT-ONLY CAMPING

If you don’t have a vehicle, or if you don’t want to be camping next to your vehicle all weekend long, try our limited Tent-Only Camping areas near the Main Venue and Centeroo. Tent-Only Camping will be identified on your festival map. There will be no cars, motorcycles, jetpacks, hovercraft, nothing allowed in this area (in fact, all of these will be towed) other than you and your tent.

Tent-Only Camping benefits:

  • Nice and close to the Main Venue and Centeroo
  • Close to General Stores, concessions and other services
  • No cars or vehicular traffic in this camping area

Here’s how it works: If you are coming in a car, but wish to stay in Tent-Only Camping you will still need a vehicle pass to enter the Tollbooths. Car Parking Passes can be purchased here. Then just leave your car behind and hoof it with your gear to the Tent-Only Camping area. You can not drive your car there to drop your stuff off, so pack light. It’s a distance – a backpack or small luggage cart might help. If you don’t have a car, you’ll still get your wristband put on at the tollbooth, then just follow the signs to Tent-Only Camping.

If you wish to stay in Tent-Only Camping but will not have a car, are being dropped off, or are entering the festival on foot you will be processed at the Tollbooth and then allowed to walk over to the Tent-Only Camping area.

NOTE: If you are participating in Tent-Only Camping but plan to drive your vehicle to Bonnaroo, you must have a Car Parking Pass in order to park your car for the weekend in our on-site parking lot. Car Parking Passes can be purchased here.

The space for Tent-Only Camping is limited, and is filled first-come, first-served (so, if you want this prime spot, get here early). If you’re last-come, no worries – you still have the camping space that goes with your vehicle.

FAMILY CAMPING

If you are bringing small children, consider using our Family Camping Area. Bonnaroo is a place for people of all ages, but we feel a special area for parents and their small children will help provide a better festival experience for all. Expecting parents are also welcome in this area. You don’t need a special ticket to camp here. Just ask for this camping section at the Tollbooth. Your vehicle will be flagged and the parking staff will direct you to the right place.

NOTE: You must have a Car Camping Pass to participate in Family Camping. Car Camping Passes can be purchased here.

LE BON TENTS - DETAILS

Large Groups

If you are attending Bonnaroo in a large group and will be renting multiple tents, you can request that your units be located next to each other. All requests can be made to onsitetent@bonnaroo.com.

Parking

Each package will include one Le Bon Tents vehicle identification tag for your car. There is only one parking space allotted to each unit, so any additional vehicles in your party will need to park either outside of the festival, or purchase a Car Camping Pass in the GA campgrounds, potentially away from the designated tent rentals area. *ALL CARS ENTERING THE GA CAMPGROUNDS WILL NEED A LE BON TENTS HANGTAG.

Claiming Your Tent

Prior to the festival, you will receive instructions via email on the how to get to Le Bon Tents when you arrive on The Farm along with check-in procedures. Each general admission purchase and rental will get a single Le Bon Tents identification hangtag for your car. THIS VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION HANGTAG IS YOUR GENERAL ADMISSION CAR CAMPING PASS NEEDED TO ENTER THE CAMPGROUNDS.

This vehicle identification tag is not necessary for the VIP Le Bon Tents area.

You must bring your receipt and picture ID to claim your Tent/Cabana. You will not be able to claim your rental without a picture ID that matches the name used when buying the package. Without your picture ID and the e-mail receipt, you may be denied your Tent/Cabana rental and no refund will be issued.
ALL AMENITIES LISTED ARE GUARANTEED FOR ALL ON-SITE TENT/CABANA RENTALS.

Damage deposit will be completely refunded within 7-10 business days following the weekend of the festival as long as there is no damage to the Tent/Cabana. The units do not include tickets to the festival, so you will need to purchase those separately. You also have the option of renting an on-site Tent/Cabana with multiple credit cards, but this can only be done for non-payment plan tent rentals. You can do this by calling Ticketstoday at 800-594-TIXX.

We strictly prohibit the resale of any Tent/Cabana rentals.

PAYMENT PLAN

For a limited time only, you have the option of renting a Tent/Cabana via a payment plan. This plan will give you the chance to spread the rental cost over 5 payments with all service fees paid on the first payment.

Your first payment will secure your Tent/Cabana. All subsequent payments will be automatically charged to the credit card used for the initial purchase. Dates for the payment plan can be found below.

You will receive an e-mail from Ticketstoday a week before each of your additional payments are due to remind you that your credit card is about to be charged. Be sure no spam blockers will stop this email. Bonnaroo is not responsible if you do not receive these e-mails for any reason.

IMPORTANT: If, for any reason, any of your payments are declined, in whole or in part, then all of the following will apply: (i) your Tent/Cabana order will be cancelled (ii) any payment received as of that date will be kept by Bonnaroo as partial offset for your default, (iii) you will still owe the balance of the full amount due for each Tent/Cabana and you authorize Ticketstoday and Bonnaroo to charge your credit card for any balance due, (iv) Ticketstoday and Bonnaroo will be entitled to pursue all of their legal and equitable remedies to recover the full payment from you, and (v) you agree to pay all costs of collection incurred by Ticketstoday or Bonnaroo, including legal fees, that they may incur in collecting the balance of each ticket price. Payment plan tickets are subject to all of the other terms of the ticketing agreement.

RENTAL COST AND PROGRAM DETAILS

The rental cost of each RV is $4550 plus service fees and a $1,000 refundable damage deposit.

IMPORTANT - IF YOU PURCHASE AN ON-SITE RV IN THE VIP AREA, EACH PERSON STAYING IN THE VIP ON-SITE RV MUST HAVE A VIP TICKET! Click here for more information on VIP tickets.

Please note that there is only one parking space allotted to each RV, so any additional vehicles in your party will need to park either outside of the festival, or in the general or VIP campgrounds potentially away from the RV trailer location. All General Admission RV renters will receive one vehicle identification tag to show at the tollbooth to help direct your vehicle to the General Admission RV Oasis area. This vehicle tag will be mailed in advance with your festival tickets.

You will not need a Car Camping Pass to participate in GA RV OASIS, as you get your own special GA RV OASIS vehicle passes.

This vehicle identification tag is not necessary for VIP renters since the VIP campground is more contained and we can easily direct you to the VIP RV Oasis area. When you arrive at the festival, staff will walk you through all the features of the unit and how to work the power, heat/air, shower etc. At the end of the event, each renter will be obligated to be present at a departure walk-thru with a staff to inspect the unit for any damages. Based on the outcome of the departure walk-thru, all or some of the deposit will be refunded within three weeks of the end of the event.

If you are attending Bonnaroo in a large group and will be renting multiple units, you can request that your units be close to each other and we will do our best to accommodate. Otherwise, the units will be assigned on a first-come, first served basis. All requests can be made to onsiterv@bonnaroo.com.

PAYMENT PLAN

For a limited time only, you have the option of renting an RV via a payment plan. This plan will spread the rental cost over 3 months, and there will be a $20 charge on top of the rental price applied to the first payment. Your first payment will serve to secure your RV Trailer. All subsequent payments will be automatically charged to the credit card used for the initial purchase. Dates for the payment plan can be found below. Ticketstoday will send you an e-mail a week before each of your additional payments are due to remind you that your credit card is about to be charged. Be sure no spam blockers will stop this email. Bonnaroo is not responsible if you do not receive these e-mails for any reason.

IMPORTANT: If, for any reason, any of your payments are declined, in whole or in part, then all of the following will apply:

  • (i) Your RV order will be cancelled
  • (ii) Any payment received as of that date will be kept by Bonnaroo as partial offset for your default,
  • (iii) You will still owe the balance of the full amount due for each RV and you authorize Ticketstoday and Bonnaroo to charge your credit card for any balance due,
  • (iv) Ticketstoday and Bonnaroo will be entitled to pursue all of their legal and equitable remedies to recover the full payment from you
  • (v) You agree to pay all costs of collection incurred by Ticketstoday or Bonnaroo, including legal fees, that they may incur in collecting the balance of each ticket price. Payment plan tickets are subject to all of the other terms of the ticketing agreement.

Groop Camping

Registration for 2016 Groop Camping has closed.

 

At Bonnaroo, you will be in the company of 80,000 wonderful friends. However, getting into the campground with all of those friends can be tricky, especially if you are coming from all parts of the country… or further. We are happy to announce Groop Camping is back for another year! With Groop Camping, you ensure that you and your large group of friends are able to camp side by side, and lend an egg if need be. Nominate a “Groop Leader” (or nominate yourself as one) and get the party started.

 

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU NEED FOR A GROOP?

You will need a minimum of 24 people (including the Groop Leader) to gain access to this special area. With this, you will get 8 vehicle passes to park around your campsite. Have more than 24 people? The more the merrier! An additional vehicle pass will be assigned for every extra 3 people in your Groop. (Pro tip: Less cars means more space to camp. Go green and carpool!)

Why should I choose Groop Camping?

The best part about Groop Camping is that you have a reserved campsite. Everyone else that is car camping will be directed to a campsite based on arrival time, so the mind-numbing puzzle of coordinating with 100 of your best friends to arrive in a caravan at one precise moment is solved! Your guaranteed camping location will be close to Centeroo and have a POD nearby, for easy access to everything you need. Get cozy more quickly on The Farm with Groop Camping.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

$50/person (fees included). But the assurance that you’re camping together can actually save you money! How? By pooling your resources and coordinating well in advance (“you bring the grill and we’ll bring the bratwurst”).

​HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once a Groop Leader is chosen, head over to the registration sign up page above. In order to save a spot for your Groop, the Groop Leader deposits $150 (fees included). Don’t worry! $100 will be refunded back to Groop Leaders once all of your Groopies sign up. Once your deposit is received, Groop Leaders will receive an instructional email all about how to officially register your Groop. You’ll need to choose a Groop name at that time—get weird and creative! (Nick Cage’s Campers, The Cinnamon Washcloths, Comic Sans Soiree).

Note: All Groop Campers must have a festival ticket before registering. All Groopies will need to provide proof of a ticket before any Groop Camping spot is confirmed. This is to ensure there are no Ghost Groopies who do not actually show up and take up valuable Groop Camping space for just a few real live campers.

​This sounds great. How do I sign up?

Groop Camping space is limited, so sign up early because it WILL sell out! The Groop Leader registration deadline is Friday, February 12th, or when all Groop Camping spots are filled, whichever comes first.

For more information on Groop Camping, please contact groopcamping@bonnaroo.com.

Heads up! You will not need a car camping pass to participate in Groop Camping, as you get your own special Groop Camping vehicle passes.
