The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is a four day music festival held in Manchester, Tennessee on a 700-acre farm with an attendance over 18,000. All four days are full of exciting activities, from concerts to movies, and art projects to a Silent Disco! Dedicated to recycling and sustainability, Bonnaroo is a festival focused on being “green” and in helping the environment. Charity is also a big part as they make regular contributions to The American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Doctors Without Borders and many more. All in all, Bonnaroo is a big deal! That is why we are putting together this handy guide to help you get tickets!
**The Bonnaroo Presales begin today at 10 AM EST! Don’t miss the chance to get tickets!**
What’s the Deal with Tickets?
Here is what you need to do in order to get tickets to Bonnaroo:
- Follow them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram or sign up for their updates to know when tickets go on sale.
- Once the tickets do go on sale, make sure you are online and ready to get in the queue as soon as they drop. Tickets may sell fast and you’ll want ’em. You will have the option to buy general admission tickets or VIP passes to the festival with an option to use Bonnaroo’s great payment plans.
- Although you may only be thinking about the tickets you may also want to think about where you are staying. Whether you will be in a hotel, camping out, or bringing an RV you will need to buy your shuttle/parking/camping passes accordingly.
- Each ticket buyer will receive a high security wristband with a uniquely coded chip. Every wristband will be scanned as you enter and exit the festival site. Activation instructions will be shipped to you along with your wristbands. (Do not put them on until you leave for the festival/do not take off until the festival is over!) Be sure to keep them in a safe place as these cannot be replaced.
- Tickets sold out? You can always check out ticket resell sites like Super Seats to get tickets cheaper than anywhere else.

Come prepared with cash to buy your food, drinks, or any items you might have forgotten. If you do not want to buy food you are welcome to bring your meals and snacks. Coolers are extremely helpful but the ice may melt quickly. We suggest freezing any and/or all plastic water bottles you bring to help keep your food colder longer.
Staying at a hotel? There are shuttles to and from the festival. All you gotta do is buy the pass. If you are tent camping be sure you and all your friends have the same camping passes so you can stay together. If you want to know about other accommodations, check out Bonnaroo’s site to find out about accessibility and their deadlines.
