What began as a Manchester, Tenn., jam-centric outdoor festival in 2002 quickly exploded, and diversified, into one of the most influential pop-culture gatherings in America. Its thundering conception is hailed as one of the most influential rock festivals on the planet, and Bonnaroo has become synonymous with the intermingling of revered legends with forward-thinking, innovative up-and-comers. Over the past decade, the annual four-day festival has expanded to include full cinema and comedy programming alongside playing host to the more than 100 musical acts on 700 acres of farmland. As attendees continue to assemble in droves nearly shattering 100,000, Bonnaroo’s eminent practice of challenging genre boundaries has bolstered itself an unquestionable authority in the festival scene.
