The Academy, located within the hay bale building in the heart Planet Roo offers interactive arts experiences with workshops in art, song writing, percussion, henna tattooing, instrument building, and gardening.
BonnaROOTS Community Dinners
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.
The anchor of Planet Roo is The Farm’s only completely solar powered stage. We have some fun new surprises up our sleeves for 2017 so stay tuned for more details!
Bonnaroo Learning Garden
Learn to grow your own food, right in the middle of the festival! The Learning Garden is a quintessential Planet Roo experience where you can get hands on training from knowledgeable farmers and volunteers. The Learning Garden is a dynamic space to explore your curiosity about food.
Kidz Jam inspires a love of music, culture and creativity, while providing a safe haven for children by hosting a class each day of the festival for little ones and their parents. Special activity supplies are limited to families and children. Adults may participate by donation, depending on availability. (Parents must attend Kidz Jam with their children.)
The Shredders and We are Neutral will be back in 2017 to help us all reduce our carbon power footprints. The Shredders are a hope-generating, “if it ain’t fun don’t do it”, shreddolutionary education group dedicated to helping concert goers save money on energy costs, reduce pollution and create a clean energy future for the communities we live in. If 80,000 people each reduce their carbon footprint by 5% that would reduce our collective carbon output by hundreds of millions of pounds. Be the Biggest Loser. The Planet and all of us win.
