Things You Need to Know About Bonnaroo


DON’T FORGET TO REGISTER YOUR WRISTBAND AND PUT IT ON YOUR RIGHT WRIST! Wristband registration is required and your wristband must be on before you arrive.

GA camping opens early at 8pm on Wednesday to allow for traffic to enter overnight. VIP camping does not open until Thursday morning at 7am.
Managing traffic is the closest thing we know to rocket science, so trust us. In order to get everyone into the festival as quickly as possible, we carefully balance the number of vehicles coming into each Tollbooth. Please obey all law enforcement directions, as well as electronic message boards that may post an alternative route. Campsites are filled in the most efficient way possible, and this means that just by arriving early, you will not be guaranteed a closer spot to Centeroo.

Please BE PATIENT- assembling a city of THOUSANDS of people literally overnight takes time, and you may be in line for a few hours. Be sure to take a bathroom break and fill up your gas tank before getting in line.

Once your car is parked in car camping, YOU MAY NOT MOVE YOUR CAR UNTIL AFTER FRIDAY AT 6pm CT. We expect heavy traffic entering the campgrounds until this time, so if you need to drive your car out of the campgrounds, please plan accordingly. If you forgot something, remember that there are general stores with useful groceries and items for sale in the campgrounds!

Be prepared to have your car politely searched on your way in. Remember, no glass, no kegs, no pets! (see FAQ here more details)

Coming from Nashville? Check out our shuttle packages for easy transport to and from The Farm. Single day tickets are also available exclusively with these shuttle packages (you MUST ride the shuttle to use that ticket).
