This year, new Community Experiences will empower and amplify the Bonnaroovian family!

Living on The Farm together for four days sparks relationships that last a lifetime. Being a part of Bonnaroo means being a part of a creative community bigger than yourself. Each and every Bonnaroovian who brings their authentic self and creative spirit to The Farm makes it what it is.

We’ve listened to your feedback and heard your stories. We’re working to create opportunities, for this year and the future, to support you in your connections and creative expressions.

Keep checking back for more info on Come Together: Community Experiences at Bonnaroo 2017 and beyond!


The B-Hive

The B-Hive under The Tower will be the Bonnaroovian equivalent of a Town Square: a place for the community to come together, explore and take part in Bonnaroo’s history, and discover opportunities to participate in community experiences on The Farm. A few of the B-Hive activities are listed below, but check back soon for more B-Hive updates!

The Bonnaroo Yearbook: Yoo Were Here! Stop in to have your photo taken so that you can be a part of the 2017 Bonnaroo Yearbook.


For Roo By Yoo

Bring an activity or experience to The Farm to share with the Bonnaroo Community: because YOU are what makes Bonnaroo what it is. Tell us what you want to do at ‘Roo, and we might just make it happen!

No idea is too small, from a coordinated costume meet-up to palm reading. No intention is too big, we really do think positivity and inclusivity can change the world. Your idea should be something you (or you and a small group of friends) can easily accomplish on The Farm, while still having a blast at Bonnaroo yourself.

Music Box Village by The Airlift Collective

Chateau Poulet & Western Electric will be coming to Bonnaroo! Located near Pod 10, come explore the farther reaches of The Farm and experience musical architecture.

In New Orleans, The Music Box is a place where play, imagination, experimentation, collaboration, community and hard work come together as artist-made, interactive “musical houses.” The Music Box is inspired by the unique musical and architectural culture of our home city of New Orleans. The project pushes artistic boundaries, but more importantly it brings together people of all stripes for a heartwarming, creative experience that has equal appeal for a musical giant such as Thurston Moore or a gaggle of 5-year-olds.

More information about the artists:


The Grind

The Grind is where you can grab a coffee or a cold brew, and soak up the music and creativity of your fellow Bonnaroovians.

The KaleidoShack

An interactive art installation that YOU help finish, and a Bonnaroovian time capsule, The KaleidoShack is an experiment in communal creativity and shared space. Visit to view the kaleidoscope, hang out in the shade, leave your positive vibes for the future by participating in the finishing touches. By artist Walker Babington

Note that the art to the left is not the KaleidoShack, but some past work by the same artist. Sketches of the KaleidoShack coming soon!
