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).

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 “Verve”). 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.

EVENT CANCELLATION

In the event of a full cancellation for any reason, official Bonnaroo tickets will be refunded. Your tickets will be refunded by your point of purchase (Front Gate, Lyte, Ticketmaster). If you accepted an offer from Lyte for your ticket, that will still be paid out to you.

CHILDREN AT THE FESTIVAL

Bonnaroo is an all ages event and there is no minimum age to attend. Children 10yrs old and under (at the time of the fest) may attend without a ticket as long as they are accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.

Family Camping is also available as one of our “community camps” at no additional cost (you’ll just need a normal car camping pass if you have a car). Bonnaroo is a place for people of all ages, but we feel a special area for parents and their small children will help provide a better festival experience for all. Here you can expect a quieter environment with other families nearby, as well as a relatively central location in the campgrounds. Expecting parents are also welcome in this area. Please email familycamping@bonnaroo.com to register to camp in the Family Camping area ahead of time. The deadline to register will be May 29th, 2020.

You can also log into your bonnaroo.frontgatetickets.com account and process payments yourself. On June 1, 2020 @ 11:59PM ET, all layaway plans that are not paid in full will be cancelled. Please remember that tickets that are not paid in full will not be honored. We understand that you have many questions and we are working diligently to get more information available to you. We hear you and we will respond as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

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.

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? The Tollbooth in which you enter, and the time you arrive. Does this mean some people get “better” camping spots than others? Yeah, it does. Life is unfair. But no matter where you camp, you’re close to bathrooms, water, security and medical staff. And keep in mind that a closer campsite doesn’t mean a better view of the stage. It’s just a shorter walk, and the exercise doesn’t hurt. Furthermore, we know from experience that amazingly great times are had in every corner of the campgrounds. Who knows, you could be camped next door to your new BFF.
  • 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 2020, this area will be close to Plaza 7 (The Ville and the Grove!). 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 be allowed to enter under special circumstances. Security personnel will warn motorcycle riders that motorcycles must be parked and will not be allowed to drive around the festival property unless the motorcycle is exiting the festival grounds.

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.

TOLLBOOTHS & VEHICLE ENTRANCES

Here’s what to expect at the Tollbooths:

  1. When you get there, you’ll fan out from a single lane into multiple lanes where you’ll be processed for entry.
  2. You MUST have either a Car Camping Pass, Car Parking Pass, or be a part of a speciality program such as VIP, Tents & Glamping, Groop Camping, or RV with the appropriate hangtag that is included in your ticket order for your car to pass through the Tollbooth. (you may pass on foot with only a valid ticket/wristband)
  3. Your vehicle will be searched, and we’ll find out just how carefully you’ve read about what’s prohibited and allowed.
  4. RVs and their companion vehicle with a Car Camping Pass, and all accessible vehicles will be directed to designated lanes. If that’s you, follow the posted signs.
  5. As you enter the Tollbooth, everyone in your vehicle should have their wristband registered, in place around their wrist, and ready to show to the Tollbooth staff. See the Bonnaroo Wristband section for instructions.
  6. At the Tollbooth, you’ll get a Program Guide with a fancy map of the entire festival site, along with garbage and recycling bags to keep your campsite clean.

Once your vehicle is processed, you’re good to enter. Next, follow the parking staff’s directions to your camping area – camping locations are on a first come, first served basis.

NOTE: If you are parking just for the day, you MUST have a Car Parking Pass to park on-site. Upon arrival, one of our parking staff will direct you to the Day Parking Lot (this opens at 8:00 AM Thursday morning). If you are planning to arrive by car Wednesday evening and are not camping, or are planning to stay in Tent Only camping you MUST have a Car Camping Pass.

We ask that you don’t clog up the Tollbooth or roads by waiting for your friends. The only way to make sure you camp with them is to arrive together. There is a small area where you can wait for each other if you get separated in security lines, but you still need to arrive around the same time. Actually, if you’re traveling with a large group, there is another way: see our Groop Camping option.

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.
  • Pack some snacks and nonalcoholic beverages (remember, arrival tip #1).
  • Play 20 Questions.
  • Tune into Radio Bonnaroo (WFTZ 101.5 FM) as you approach Manchester for up-to-the-minute traffic announcements, news and an eclectic mix of music, artist interviews and in-studio performances.

On-site Info 📍

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 in the future. 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/ Main Venue: Want to take a mid-day nap? No problem. You may exit and re-enter Centeroo and the Main Venue back to the campgrounds as many times as you please. Keep in mind you must be scanned out in order to re-enter, and you will have to pass through a security checkpoint to re-enter Centeroo and the Main Venue (just as if you were entering for the first time).
  • 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 two General Stores on-site offering a variety of items for all your weekend needs.Anytime you leave the campgrounds you’ll have to go through another vehicle search when you return (just as if you were entering for the first time).
  • In and out of the campgrounds on foot: You may leave and re-enter the event grounds on foot at any time and as often as you like, 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.Obvious, but we have to say it: Do not attempt to leave through the Highway Tollbooth, even if you originally came in there. It’s a highway. It’s dangerous. What would your mother say?

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. 2020 Will Call location and hours coming soon.

LOST & FOUND

Lose something at the festival? Head to the Info Booth at Plaza 4 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

Yes. If you need cash, ATMs can be found throughout Centeroo, at the General Stores, and at most Plazas.

Heard about Bonnaroo Cashless? Bonnaroo Cashless is the easy way for you to pay for food, drinks, merch and more with the tap of a wrist. It’s basically magic, but cooler (OK, maybe not cooler, but it’s pretty cool). Cashless is secure, free, and easy to use. You’ll simply link a credit card to your wrisband when you register your wristband before the festival.

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.

2020 MAP COMING SOON

Because Bonnaroo is a temporary city, the Bonnaroo 2020 map won’t be finalized until about a month before the event. That being said, you can take a look at this partial map here, to get a general idea.

*Map is subject to change without notice.

Safety & Security ⛑

keyboard_arrow_down

SAFETY

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. If you see something, say something – if anything feels out of place or suspicious, we ask that you please notify the nearest staff member or security official.

SECURITY SCREENING & ENTRY

For the safety of everyone entering the festival, all patrons are subject to a full and complete search prior to entry.

Please review the Allowed & Prohibited items list for a stress-free entry process.

By purchasing a ticket, you agree to submit to a full body pat-down before entry. If you would like to be screened by security personnel of your same gender, please let security personnel know prior to the search process. Screening of children will always take place with the consent of a parent or guardian.

All bags will be searched before entry.

Persons that refuse to comply with the search policy will be refused entry into the event.

At any time during the entry process if you have questions, ask for assistance from Festival Staff located at the front gates.

MEDICAL TENT LOCATIONS

Every Plaza located throughout the campgrounds (including RV, Groop, and VIP sites) contains a medical tent. The primary medical compound can be found to the left of the VIP Tollbooth entrance, at the end of Woodland Ave.

Bonnaroo medical tents are a safe haven. Our medical and safety staff is here to help you with any needs throughout the festival where. Please keep in mind that anything you say here stays here and all information given to staff is kept confidential.

If you see someone who is sick, upset, scared or clearly having a bad experience, get help. Find a medical tent or festival staff member. Provide all the information you can to safety or medical staff. Our “no questions asked” policy means neither you nor the sick person can get in trouble when you seek help.

SAFETY STAFF

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

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 at the Tollbooths (which you should definitely keep in mind when deciding what to bring).

And prepare to be (politely) searched each time you enter Centeroo or the Main Venue.

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.

CAMPGROUND POLICIES

  • Alcohol Policy: Each person per car may bring in 2 cases of beer, 1.75 liter of hard liquor (no glass), and 2 boxes of wine. Anything over this amount is considered “excessive” and will be confiscated. No kegs are allowed in the campgrounds.
  • Campfire Policy: Campfires are NOT allowed at Bonnaroo. Open flames will not be permitted within the campgrounds or festival site with the only exception being permitted small grills for cooking.
  • Grill Policy: If you have a portable grill or stove, you may bring up to 40 lbs of charcoal and/or a small (20 lbs or less) container of propane. Please note, the small green Coleman propane tanks are limited to 2 per grill.
  • Gasoline, Propane, and Charcoal Policy: If you have a gas-powered generator smaller than 4KW, you are allowed to bring the appropriate amount of gasoline to power it (5 gallons). Any excessive amounts of gasoline will be confiscated. If you have a portable grill or stove, you may bring up to 40 lbs of charcoal and/or a small (20 lbs or less) container of propane. Please note, the small green Coleman propane tanks are limited to 2 per grill.

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.

STAY HYDRATED 💦

Do you know the secret to a good time at Bonnaroo? Hydration. Really. (And that’s water – alcohol actually dehydrates you.) Bonnaroo offers free, 100% filtered and drinkable water located throughout the festival. Check your festival map (COMING SOON) for locations. Bring a water vessel (or two) to fill up and stay hydrated. NOTE: (1) factory-sealed, full water bottle per person will also be allowed entry into Centeroo. Every faucet at Bonnaroo is safe to drink from – filtered, tested and certified to meet Tennessee drinking water requirements.

EMERGENCY 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 🎒

Register Your Wristband (Psst... It's Required)

Like all years, all Bonnaroovians are required to register his/her RFID wristband. It’s your ticket and your investment. Registering will establish its authenticity and ensure that your uniquely coded wristband belongs to you. Connecting will also enhance your Bonnaroo experience with social media features, possible VIP upgrades, and other perks.

In order to register your wristband you will need your wristband identification number, which can be found on the back of the saddle of your wristband (the part thats a central, different color).

QUICK WRISTBAND FAQs:

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. If you see something, say something – if anything feels out of place or suspicious, we ask that you please notify the nearest staff member or security official.

Vendors & Volunteers

keyboard_arrow_down

In addition to an extensive schedule of entertainment and activities at Bonnaroo®, there will be a great variety of unique and interesting goods for sale at several locations throughout the site. Each year Bonnaroo is committed to selecting quality craft and merchandise vendors. The unauthorized sale of merchandise in the camping area is not permitted, and Bonnaroo is committed to ensuring a successful event for all authorized vendors.

There are several locations throughout the entire site where authorized Bonnaroo food vendors will be stationed. The various opportunities are described in the application forms. For health and quality reasons, unauthorized food vendors pose a risk to festival goers. Unauthorized food vendors are not permitted and will be shut down to alleviate that risk.

General questions may be directed to vendors@bonnaroo.com

(NOTE: Sending an email to this address does not take the place of filing an application)

BECOMING A FOOD VENDOR

We are accepting applications for the following types of food vendors:

  • Booths: A 10 x 10 space will be provided. Multiple spaces may be available. Power and water will be additional charges depending on individual vendor needs.
    For some vendor rows the festival will provide facades in front of booths and artistic headers above the booths. These booths will be charged an additional fee for the premium space.
  • Mobile unit spaces: Self contained vehicles or trailers that provide their own power and water systems.
  • Carts: May sell pre-packaged, non-perishable items or cooked items.

There are vending spaces available inside the concert venues, in Centeroo and in the campgrounds. For the campgrounds, preference will be given to vendors that can provide breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night fare from Thursday morning until Monday morning. Since we are expecting a large crowd for the weekend, it is imperative that each vendor has the experience and ability to serve large numbers of people quickly for extremely long hours.

The rent for each 10 x 10 space will be a $2,000.00 guaranteed flat fee or a percentage of gross sales, whichever is higher. All guarantees must be paid before the event. Percentages will be determined with each vendor individually. Percentage of gross sales will range from 25 percent to 35 percent depending on complexity of menu items. We require a $1000 deposit per booth payable upon acceptance in order to secure your spot. The balance of your guarantee, along with any fees due for power, water, trash deposit, tent rental and premium space fees must be paid in full in advance of arrival at the festival. All rent must be paid by the end of the event.

For some vendor rows the festival will provide facades in front of booths and artistic headers above the booths. These booths will be charged an additional fee for the premium space.

FOOD & BEVERAGE ITEMS

In addition to traditional festival fare, we would like to have a diverse array of interesting food items available, all at reasonable prices. Please consider your pricing carefully and try to keep your prices to under $14 for any single entree item as well as including some lower priced items. Many people will prefer vegetarian options, so we encourage you to be creative in your menu offerings. Vendors may apply to sell homemade (nothing from concentrate or powder) beverages, but all pre-packaged beverages and bottled water must be purchased on site through our distribution system. Along with all food choices, any specialty beverages sold must be pre-approved by the festival or it will not be allowed.

VENDOR CONTRIBUTION TO FESTIVAL SUSTAINABILITY

A festival as large as Bonnaroo® can produce a lot of trash. We are very committed to reducing the amount of trash that is sent to the landfill and have been developing an extensive recycling and composting program. All vendors will be required to purchase compostable/recyclable Bonnaroo paper products and cups. A link to a complete list of what is available and the pricing will be sent if you are accepted.

As part of our commitment to the environment we encourage vendors to buy food products locally and organically where possible. Accepted vendors will receive a list of local companies and farmers that may be able to meet your needs. Not only will you be supporting the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and reduction of fuel consumption, your food will look and taste great!
