Support Our Sustainability Efforts

Just by purchasing a ticket to Bonnaroo, you support all of the sustainability efforts on-site, $1 from every ticket we sell goes towards our sustainability work. From our community projects to our composting to our BonnaROOTS dinners. If you want to give more to support even more projects like these, you can do so! Remember pennies add up to dollars, so give what you can.

Annual Report To The Fans

Respect for our surroundings isn’t just our responsibility, it’s a core value of who we want to be. We want you to think positively when you think Bonnaroo. That’s why, since day one on The Farm, we’ve sweat bullets in pursuit of sustainability. It’s also why the past few years, we’ve reported back to you on our sustainability successes.

Carpool to Bonnaroo!

Carpool to Bonnaroo!

Carpooling is a great way to help us solve one of our biggest problems… the number of cars on the road. Until we all get magical electric robot cars, we have to do everything we can get to limit the number of cars on the road! We want to reward your efforts, so you might just get some nice surprises if you show up in a full car… *winky face*

Refill Revolution

Refill Revolution

Join the REFILL REVOLUTION and pre-purchase your beer cup when you buy your ticket! Last year these cups sold out on site FAST. We will be partnering once again with Steelys Drinkware and the Plastic Pollution Coalition to bring you a quality stainless steel beer cup! Purchase a beer cup during the ticket buying process or on site at any beverage stand with draft beer. Cups are $15 each and includes the durable cup with to-go carrying strap, filled with a cold beer — plus an additional $1 discount off all subsequent refills made with the cup at beer stands throughout the remainder of the festival.

Additionally, you can help reduce our consumption of plastics by refilling your water bottles. In addition to our usual free high quality well water (similar to tap), we have free filtered drinking water stations to fill up your water bottle throughout the festival site. Your bottle can be filled and refilled an infinite number of times at any of the water refill mushrooms on site; in fact, all of the water at Bonnaroo is drinkable. It comes directly from our wells so there is no trucking in of water, which makes the program even more sustainable!
