OFFICIAL WRISTBAND POLICY

Each ticket buyer to Bonnaroo will receive a high security wristband with a uniquely coded RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip embedded inside. Every wristband will be scanned as you enter & exit the festival site, as well as the Centeroo and Main Venue areas.

Each package shipped will include detailed instructions on the proper procedure for using your Bonnaroo wristband. It is important that you read these instructions and follow them exactly. Failure to follow these instructions may result in you not being admitted to the festival site.At the festival, if you have any questions or problems regarding your wristband, visit one of the Wristband Customer Service stations where a staff member can help you. Station locations will be clearly marked on your festival map.

Wristbands are non-transferrable. One wristband per person. Each individual accessing the event must have their wristband registered and on the their wrist at all times.

Wristbands will ship 2-4 weeks before the festival. If you have not received your wristband(s) 72 hours prior the start of the festival, please contact our ticket provider, Front Gate Tickets or call 888-512-SHOW (7469).

Accidentally tightened your wristband before putting it on or it arrived damaged? Not to worry! If your wristband has been tightened or is damaged, please contact our ticket provider, Front Gate Tickets in advance of the festival.

At the festival, you can stop by one of our Wristband Customer Service locations near the entrances to Centeroo if you need help with a wristband issue.

BUYING FROM THIRD PARTY SELLERS

Only wristbands and car passes purchased through the Bonnaroo ticket website are guaranteed to be authentic, with properly coded and activated RFID technology. If you want 100% confidence in your ticket purchase, you should only purchase your tickets through the link on our tickets page or through a friend’s link in our OFFICIAL ambassador program (powered by Pollen). In the event of a festival cancellation, your tickets may only be refunded when purchased through our official site. Tickets from other websites or resellers cannot be verified by the festival. WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO GET SCAMMED! Please be aware:

  • We are not responsible for any counterfeit tickets, wristbands or car passes.
  • In addition, any wristbands reported lost or stolen will have their RFID chip deactivated and will not be valid.
  • For your own protection, please do not purchase wristbands from any source other than bonnaroo.com or your most trusted friends and family. Fake or deactivated wristbands may look like the real thing but they will be identified by our scanning system at the front gates.
  • Those in possession of fake wristbands – or ones reported lost or stolen – will not be admitted to the festival.
  • There are NO paper tickets for Bonnaroo. Don’t get scammed!
  • Removing a wristband automatically voids it (unless by accident or for safety reasons, in which case you need to get a replacement wristband from a customer service booth at the festival – this will require you to prove your purchase information). Festival Security will check every wristband to assure it has not been removed or passed between multiple people.

GENERAL ADMISSION CAMPING ACCOMMODATIONS

Campsite sizes with a Car Camping pass are roughly 20’x20 (including the space for your car). You may NOT buy extra campsites around a single vehicle – you will get as many spots as you have cars AND passes. There is no “per person” camping fee. So if, for example, you have 3 people coming in one car, you only need 1 car camping pass (everyone will need a festival ticket though).
  • Car Parking Pass: The Car Parking Pass will grant you one parking spot in the “Day Parking Lot” starting at 8am Thursday morning until the end of the festival with passes available for each day of the festival starting at 8am on Thursday.

Simply nominate a “Groop Leader” (or nominate yourself as one) and get the party started! A minimum of 24 people is required so be sure to tell your friends and have them tell their friends too — the more the merrier! NOTE: All Groop Camping participants must purchase a General Admission (GA) ticket.

It’s easy to register as a Groop Leader and invite friends to join in on the fun. Once a Groop Leader has signed up, an automatic Groopie Registration link will be activated and ready to be shared immediately. Groop Leaders will be able to see live updates on just how large their Groop is growing, as well as the progression of other Groops. Pay close attention because Groops that hit certain goals might just get a Rootastic reward!

CAMPING FAQs 🤔

  • Camping space size? If you are Car Camping in GA, you will be given a spot that is 400 square feet (roughly 20×20 feet INCLUDING the space where your vehicle goes). If you are Car Camping in VIP, you will be given a spot that is 440 square.
  • What is a Plaza? (formerly known as a "POD") Plazas are strategically located public places throughout the campgrounds for the community to gather, enjoy art & activities, as well as access amenities (like toilets and showers… you know, necessary things), info, medical or other safety needs. No matter where you’re camped, you’ll have a Plaza nearby. It is your landmark to ensure you’re on the right path back to your campsite after too many slices of pizza, it is your home base for any general needs throughout the weekend. Each Plaza is marked with a big numbered balloon and can be seen from far, far away. Did we mention there is a Plaza Ambassador there 24/7? They are your go-to resource for any questions or issues that (hopefully don’t) arise.
  • What determines where you camp? Introducing Bonnaroo Daily Entry Camping Passes! Required for all vehicle and camping passes, this new system to enter The Farm will cut down on wait times and get you to your spot ASAP! Non-standard campgrounds have pre-assigned entry days: VIP & Platinum camping are Thursday entry, Groop Camping Passes may enter Tuesday onward, Community Camps and Tent/Accommodation rentals may enter Wednesday onward. For camping spots closer to Centeroo, plan to arrive earlier in the week (i.e. choose a Tuesday or Wednesday pass)
  • Do I HAVE to sleep in a tent? As long as you’re confined within your campsite, you can sleep in a tent, in your car, in an igloo, etc. You do you. Please be mindful of safety if you choose to sleep in a vehicle. Always make sure it is well ventilated and NEVER sleep in a running car. And always be mindful of where your car exhaust is and make sure it is never venting into an enclosed area like a neighbor’s tent.
  • What if I only have a tent? NO vehicle? 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. NEW FOR 2021, this area will be close to Plaza 6. If you wish to stay in Tent-Only Camping but will not have a car, are being dropped off, or are entering the festival on foot, you will be processed at the Tollbooth and then allowed to walk over to the Tent-Only Camping area. The space for Tent-Only Camping is limited, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis (so, if you want this prime spot, get here early). If you’re late to the party, no worries – you will be camped in GA camping.
  • Who's allowed in the campgrounds? Anyone with a valid Bonnaroo wristband (i.e. ticket to the festival) is allowed in the GA campgrounds, which is where most Plazas and activities are. You will need a VIP wristband to access th eVIP campgrounds, or a Platinum wristband to access the Platinum campgrounds though. VIP & Platinum are allowed in GA campgrounds too.
  • Can a GA person camp in VIP? Someone with a GA ticket cannot access the VIP campgrounds. People with VIP or Platinum tickets can access the GA campgrounds though.
  • Electrical Outlets & WiFi? There will be Wi-Fi available at each Plaza, as well as cell phone charging stations. Charging stations are first come first serve, and wifi can be subject to high traffic. Can you upload come pics, and chat with friends in the “real world”? of course. Should you try to stream a movie? Probably not. There are NOT outlets at your personal campsites unless you rent one of our tents with this feature.
  • Can I bring a guitar? Instruments? Yes, but please be mindful of your neighbors. Your 5 AM jam session may be your neighbors’ prime time for beauty sleep.Also, leave your instruments inside the campgrounds. Maybe one day you’ll be on stage, but not today.
  • Can I bring a bike, scooter, etc.? No bikes, scooters, skateboards or other similar transportation devices will be permitted. 2-wheeled objects will not be permitted within the campgrounds or festival site. If you are riding a bike to the fest, please plan to park or store if off the grounds somewhere.
  • Campground vendors & general stores? There will be food vendors throughout the campgrounds (along with a lot of other fun and convenient stuff), so there’s no need to walk all the way to Centeroo for a late night snack.There are also two well-stocked General Stores on site — one near the Tower Entrance and one near the Arch Entrance — that offer personal hygiene items, batteries, disposable cameras, ice, beer, water, soda, food… you get the picture. If you forgot something, check here!
  • Can I bring a motorcycle? Full-size motorcycles are discouraged, but will need to purchase a Vehicle Camping Pass.

RV FAQs 🤔

  • What "defines" an RV? An RV is defined as any vehicle larger in length of 20’. All oversized vehicles, trailers, campers that are towed are considered RVs. For more info on RVs, head here. Also, Box Trucks are not permitted.
  • Companion vehicle information? Looking to bring an extra car with your RV? Along with the RV Pass, a companion vehicle must have a Car Camping Pass. Companion vehicles must arrive on site at the same time as the RV. If you are towing anything, you do not need a Car Camping Pass (however, it MUST stay attached to the RV). Even if your (non-towed) car and RV can fit into one designated RV space (20’ X 50’) you still must purchase BOTH passes to adhere to parking standards. You are limited to ONE Car Camping Pass per RV. Vehicles towing campers are considered part of the RV, and do not need a Car Camping Pass, but must remain attached to the camper.
  • Hookups/Dumping areas? There will not be any hookups or dumping areas. However, we will have a mobile water refill/pump option for RV’s available through United Site Services for a fee.You can reach United Site Services by flagging them down in the campgrounds or by calling them at 1-800-Toilets (864-5387).
  • RV power & electricity? Checkout the Bonnaroo RV Power Pass, providing the convenience of power hook ups right at your RV spot. Because there are different size RVs that require different power to operate, we have two Power Pass options available. 50 Amp (220 volt) or 30 Amp (110 volt). Not sure what that means or what type your RV requires? Read below to help you pick the right option and review the rules and regulations of the program carefully before purchasing.

    What is an amp? How do I know which pass to purchase?
    Some of you may be RV experts, but for those that are renting this might be a new thing. Best thing to do is to ask your RV rental supplier, or your buddy you are borrowing an RV from what amperage is needed. Many newer and/or larger 5th wheel units tend to need more power, while your more traditional units tend to need only 30 Amps. However, this can vary depending on make and model so again, please confirm your needs before making your Power Pass purchase. You don’t want to rent a luxurious unit with amazing AC that runs on 50 Amps, and only purchase a 30 Amp package! If so, there’s a strong chance, there won’t be enough power in all rooms of the RV unit, and you and your friends won’t be too happy.

    Other things to know:
    50 Amp (220 volt) / 30 Amp (110 volt) spots are grouped by amperage. Units will not be mixed together so please plan accordingly if you intend to travel in a group of more than 1 RV. Arrive together to camp together (per amperage). Saving spaces will not be allowed. Please make sure that the respective amp and voltage corresponds to what is indicated here: 50 Amp (220 volt) ONLY, and all 30 Amp (110 volt). No adapters or connectors that adjust the above amperage and voltage will be allowed.


    What is required of you?
    You must provide your own connector for the (30 or 50 Amp) spot you purchased.
    Electrical extension cords must be provided for each RV, with a minimum of 75′ to run from each RV to the power source. Many RVs already come with some length of cord, meaning you may only need to supplement by having an additional 25′ extension cord.
    Be sure to order the right power. In the event that an RV user overloads their 30 Amp (110 volt) or 50 Amp (220 volt) power source and “pops” their breaker, Bonnaroo staff will gladly reset the breaker one time and give the RV owner a one time warning. If the breaker “pops” a second time, the RV triggering the issue will be disconnected from the power grid without a refund for the remainder of the show.
    You can find extension cords, power connectors, power adaptors, and other RV supplies at numerous places not limited to CampingWorld.com, AdventureRV.net, CandysCampers.com, Scenic RoadsRV.com, SouthernRV.net, and any other RV supply store.

ARRIVAL PRO-TIPS

  1. Like officers everywhere, Tennessee police expect you to obey the highway safety laws, and they’re prepared to enforce them. They’re especially strict about open container violations, so think, do you really want to start the weekend in the slammer?
  2. Law enforcement is looking out for your safety and want you to have a good time. Tell them thank you and trust that they want to get you onto the Farm more than anyone.
  3. Please stay in your car, especially when you’re waiting in line to enter the festival. This is no time for hacky sack.
  4. Bonnaroo is a friendly place. Don’t kill the vibe by cutting in line. You’ll be in soon, we promise.
How to deal with the inevitable traffic delays:
  • Fill up your tank before getting in line to enter the festival. There are no gas stations on-site. We suggest stopping and filling up when you’re still an hour or so away – things will get more crowded as you get closer.
  • Empty YOUR tank, too, before you arrive. There are no bathrooms in line.

EXIT & RE-ENTRY

Although Bonnaroo is its own little magical kingdom, we’re surrounded by the real-world town of Manchester, Tennessee. With your cooperation we can make sure we’ll be welcomed back each year. When you’re walking outside the festival grounds, remember that you are Out There — please follow all pedestrian rules and be respectful of our neighbors and their property. Show them some Bonnaroovian love.

IN AND OUT OF CENTEROO
Want to take a mid-day nap? No problem. You may exit and re-enter Centeroo as many times as you please. Keep in mind you must be scan out your wristband in order to re-enter, and you will have to pass through a security checkpoint to re-enter Centeroo.

IN AND OUT OF THE CAMPGROUNDS IN A VEHICLE
We hope you won’t need to leave our little utopia during the festival. But if you do, please wait until Friday evening, unless there is a serious emergency. It is best to arrive on The Farm with enough supplies to last you the whole weekend. If you forget something, we’ve got you covered. There are General Stores on-site offering a variety of items for all your weekend needs.

Anytime you leave the campgrounds you’ll have to let security at the gates scann your pass and on return, go through another vehicle search(just as if you were entering for the first time).

IN AND OUT OF THE CAMPGROUNDS ON FOOT
We really don't suggest this but you can leave and re-enter the event grounds on foot at any time but only through the East and West Tollbooths. You must be scanned out by our staff and scanned back in when you return. Very important: If you do not have your wristband scanned out, you will not be allowed to re-enter the site.

WILL CALL & BOX OFFICE

Except for last minute purchases and international orders, most tickets will be shipped prior to the festival. Under special circumstances, some tickets will need to be picked up at Will Call when you arrive at the festival. If that is the case, you will receive instructions on how and where to pick up your tickets. Tickets may only be picked up by the original buyer with valid photo ID.

LOST & FOUND

Lose something at the festival? Head to the Info Booth by The Tower to see if your item has been recovered.

If the Info Booth doesn’t have it you shouldn’t give up yet! Head on over to bonnaroo.com/lost to submit a claim. If a fellow Bonnaroovian turns it in we’ll be able to match it up with you.

ATMs & CASH

Heard about Bonnaroo Cashless? Bonnaroo Cashless is the easiest way for you to pay for food, drinks, merch and more with the tap of a wrist.  Cashless is secure, free, and easy to use. You’ll simply link a credit card to your wrisband when you register your wrisband before the festival.     If you still need cash there are a handful of ATMS in Centeroo, the General Stores, and at most Plazas.  Check out a map for specific locations

BATHROOMS & SHOWERS

Last year we made some Bonnaroovian-approved site improvements! There are hundreds of permanent, flushable toilets in Centeroo — try them out this year, we’re sure you’ll find them extremely pleasant. Flushable “vac” toilets will be available at each Plaza as well as permanent showers at some Plaza locations. In addition, we will have port-a-John’s and set up throughout the campgrounds, Centeroo and the Main Venue.


Showers can be found at all PLAZA locations except Plaza 8, indicated on your festival map. Showers are operated and cleaned by our very own shower fairies during hours of operations:

  • Wednesday from 9pm – 12am at PLAZAs 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 and 10.
  • All locations will be open from Thursday – Sunday from 6am – 2am.
  • On Monday, showers will be open from 6am – 11am.

Showers cost $10 during peak hours daily between 6am – 2pm and 6pm – 10pm. Take advantage of happy hour pricing where showers are just $5 from 2pm-6pm and again from 10pm-2am.

LOCKER RENTALS

Lockers are be available for rent inside Centeroo at the Arch entrance, as well as within the VIP area or the GA+ lounge (note that you also need a GA+ ticket or a VIP ticket to access those areas. VIP does not have access to the GA+ lounge). Use the locker to store your personal items in all weekend long while in the venue. Locker locations will remain open and accessible during all Centeroo hours.

Check back for rental informaton.

ELECTRICAL OUTLETS & WIFI

There will be Wi-Fi available at each Plaza, as well as cell phone charging stations. Charging stations are first come first serve, and wifi can be subject to high traffic.

⛑ Safety & Security

keyboard_arrow_down

The safety of fans, artists and staff remains our top priority.  Our team continues to be in regular communication with local health and public safety officials and we intend to abide by relevant recommendations to ensure a safe and enjoyable festival.  

As we approach Bonnaroo weekend (September 2-5, 2021), we will continue to update Bonnaroovians with the important information needed to plan your trip to The Farm, including any changes to policies and procedures you need to know before entering the festival and campgrounds.  Updates will be shared on this page, through our social media channels and via our email list.  If you haven’t already, sign up for our E-mail list to have the most current information sent directly to your inbox.

COVID-19 WARNING

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures for you, our artists and employees.  You must follow all posted instructions while attending Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present.  COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.  According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Help keep each other healthy.

MEDICAL EMERGENCY SERVICES

We make every effort to create a safe and secure environment at Bonnaroo. On-site security, emergency medical staff, and crisis counselors will be available 24 hours a day. If you need any assistance, go to the nearest Medical Tent or ask any Bonnaroo staff member for assistance.

WHERE: There are two Medical tents located in Centeroo check your map or ask a staff member where they're at.

Lots of things can happen on The Farm: bee stings, arm-wrestling injuries, faces rocked off while dancing. That’s why Centeroo and every Plaza is home to a Bonnaroo medical tent, staffed around the clock with Bonnaroo medical staff. For your safety, Medical Tents are staffed with nurses, physicians, and a crisis counselor, and a roaming medical staff is always on duty in the concert venue.

SAFETY STAFF

WHERE: You can find our safety (aka security) staff roaming through every campground, at every Plaza, at the entrance to Centeroo and at all the stages, as well as throughout all of Centeroo.

Our safety staff is trained to help make sure everyone has a good time and stays safe. If you have a security issue in the campgrounds, each Plaza has a security station open 24 hours. Mounted security patrols (yes, on horseback!) roam the campground areas at all times and can assist as well. Lasso one if you need help.

All vehicles will be searched upon entry to the festival (by people and dogs) at the Tollbooths (which you should definitely keep in mind when deciding what to bring).

And prepare to be (politely) screened each time you enter Centeroo.

FOOD SAFETY

Please don’t buy from unlicensed vendors. We work hard to ensure all official food and drink is good and safe. And really, if you buy something from an unlicensed vendor, you have no idea what you’re getting. There is lots of great stuff to buy from official Bonnaroo vendors, who deserve your business, not least because they have made a real commitment to support Bonnaroo.

MEDICATION & PRESCRIPTIONS

You are perfectly allowed to have your medications (we want you to stay healthy!). Over the counter medications are allowed at Bonnaroo in reasonable personal quantities. If you are bringing prescription medication, please make sure to bring a valid photo ID that matches the name printed on your prescription.

If you need to refrigerate any medication (including insulin), please stop by any medical tent and someone will assist you.

 VEHICLE ACCESS

Our roads might not look like city streets. But for emergency and maintenance vehicles, they do the job as long as you keep them open. Which is what we ask you to do. Please park in designated areas and don’t drive around the site. Walk on the sides of the roads, and please let all official vehicles through.

🎒 Get Ready To Roo

How Is Bonnaroo Ensuring A Safe Event?

We work year-round with local, state, and federal law enforcement, security officials, and harm reduction experts to ensure we provide the safest experience possible for our patrons, staff, volunteers and artists. Our layered security plans include both concealed and visible measures not limited to extensive vehicle and patron search techniques at the campground entrances as well as at the festival entrance points into Centeroo. Event security, police and medical staff are stationed on the festival grounds and available 24 hours a day to respond or assist with any safety or security needs. We ask that our patrons help our effort to maintain a safe event by being mindful of each other and aware of your surroundings.
