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.

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!

The Clean Vibes' Trading Post

The Clean Vibes’ Trading Post Powered by Think Twice Drink Twice

​At the Clean Vibes Trading Post, powered by Think Twice Drink Twice, your bottles and cans become currency used to purchase festival gear, camping essentials, t-shirts and more! After you’ve given your plastic bottle a second life by refilling and reusing, bring it on down to the Trading Post to swap it out for some well earned swag!

Recycling

Rooduce, Roouse, Roocycle

​With great fun comes great responsibility. Please help Clean Vibes, our heroic trash and recycling crew, by keeping your site and the concert areas clean. Recycle, compost and pick up after yourself.

As a new festival partner this year, Think Twice Drink Twice is supporting all of the recycling stations festival-wide, as well as the Clean Vibes Trading Post, encouraging attendees to reuse their plastic water bottles before recycling, or to trade them in for sweet festival swag. Lets cut plastic bottle consumption in half and look fly while doing so, bonnaroovians!

WHAT GOES WHERE:
  • RECYCLINGpowered by Think Twice Drink Twice – Place in recycling collection bins throughout site and blue bags at your campsite. All plastic containers, aluminum and tin cans, glass, clean mixed paper, drink cartons, plastic packaging and grocery bags can be recycled.
  • COMPOST – Place all food waste and other compostables in compost collection bins throughout site or in clear bags at your campsite. (Do not contaminate with trash.) All plates, cups, forks and other food service items sold by festival vendors are compostable.
  • LANDFILL – If it can’t be recycled or composted, place it in the landfill collection bins throughout the site or in a clear bag at your campsite. Styrofoam, chip bags, ice cream and candy wrappers should go in this bin.
  • CIGARETTE BUTTS – Place in butt bins located throughout Centeroo for recycling or collect and turn them in at the Clean Vibes Trading Post for prizes.

When the music stops, please clean up your campsite (get extra bags at your POD). Pick up bottle caps and any other debris. Tie up your bags and leave them at the edge of the road. We’ll take it from there. Collect cans, cups, and bottles or cigarette butts using a bag from the Clean Vibes Trading Post powered by Think Twice Drink Twice in Planet Roo and trade them in for points to redeem for a variety of great prizes.

BonnaROOTS are our annual locally-sourced sunset feasts supporting grassroots causes—Oxfam America and Eat for Equity. VERY special guests join us for an unforgettable meal on The Farm. Last year people found themselves sitting next to Bonnaroo co-founders, Bonnaroo producers, artists, activists and an assortment of Bonnaroovians with an appetite for soulfully good food. Together, you’ll eat, drink, and raise thousands of dollars for the greater good.

SOLD OUT FOR 2017. Thank you!
