Bonnaroo Named the Music Festival That Will Give You the Most Bang for Your Buck
Bonnaroo starts tomorrow (June 11), and if you're heading to Tennessee for the four-day event, then you're actually getting the best value of all the festivals this year.
Rukkus, a site that aggregates ticket sales for tons of major events from sports to music, found that one four-day fest pass for Bonnaroo ($295) will save almost 75 percent compared to buying tickets to all of the 98 acts' separate gigs. Now that's a deal.
Rukkus also breaks down the history of music festivals in a nifty timeline, and shows that fans would drive 301 hours and travel 20,123 miles if they were to hit up the 16 major fests in the U.S. While there are some music lovers who might attempt to do that this year, Strands of Oak, Odesza and Sylvan Esso have been dubbed "Road Warriors" because they've been booked to perform at eight of the events.
