CHECK BACK SOON FOR 2016 camping INFO
GENERAL ADMISSION CAMPING
The General Admission (GA) Campgrounds OPEN at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, June 10, 2015. And CLOSE at 3:00 PM on Monday, June 15, 2015.
GA Camping is included in your festival ticket price. 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.
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.
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.Read More
The VIP Campgrounds OPEN at 7:00 AM on Thursday, June 11. And CLOSE at 3:00 PM on Monday, June 15.
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? Deluxe bathrooms and showers, and an exclusive VIP lounge located in the VIP campgrounds and in Centeroo - lounges include laptops with Internet access, cell phone charging stations, 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!
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 have a car, come in through the regular Tollbooths and park as if you’re going to camp with your vehicles. 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.
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.
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.
