The sun-drenched fields of Middle Tennessee are set to resonate with the eclectic rhythms of the world once again as the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival announces its grand return to The Farm in Manchester from June 13-16, 2024. The festival's vibrant history stretches back over two decades, growing from a small gathering to a cultural juggernaut that embodies the very essence of New Orleans French Creole slang, "Bon-a-roo" – the "best on the street."

Founded in 2002, Bonnaroo quickly became a sanctuary for music enthusiasts, a place where the spirit of diversity echoes through the performances of indie rock legends, jazz maestros, hip hop icons and electronic music pioneers. Bonnaroo is not just a festival but a four-day cultural phenomenon that showcases the tapestry of American music, from the twang of bluegrass to the soulful expressions of gospel, Americana and the pulsating beats of reggae.

The festival's identity is intertwined with its unique art installations, whimsically scattered across the vast festival grounds, inviting festivalgoers to interact and fuse their energy with the art. This immersive experience has become a hallmark of the Bonnaroo tradition, setting it apart as a space where the visual and the auditory are in constant, harmonious dialogue.

Some of the headliners for this year include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Post Malone, Pretty Lights, and Fred again.. Additionally, the festival features a wide array of artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Cage the Elephant, Maggie Rogers, Khruangbin, The Mars Volta, Carly Rae Jepsen, Interpol, Four Tet, Brittany Howard, Thundercat, Gary Clark Jr., GWAR, Yves Tumor and Sean Paul. This eclectic mix highlights Bonnaroo's commitment to a diverse and energetic musical experience, catering to fans of various genres.

As the festival prepares to unfold its next act, the legacy of Bonnaroo stands as a testament to the unifying power of music and art, a place where the "best on the street" is not just a phrase, but a lived experience for the thousands who will gather under the Tennessee sky.
