Upgrades to the Bonnaroo fest include improved communal areas (formerly known as pods, now called Plazas) with shade, free public WiFi, showers, activities and art, charging stations, misting stations, medical, safety stations, information and portable restrooms.
According to a press release, further upgrades that will presumably be clear to previous festival attendees include “several permanent ‘Barns’ being installed in various locations onsite including VIP that are being designed to create more vibrant scenes in the campgrounds similar to the legendary ones at The Grind and The Garage. A pristine wooded hangout similar to The Grove is also being installed.”
Other highlights include “Droolworthy Food with celebrity chef Tim Love, set to be a special community-focused area based on all things culinary, as well as House of Yes, Little Cinema, The Well, Tonalism by DUBLAB and The B-Hive Under the Tower.” As in past years, “Groop Camping” in the general-admission campground is available to ensure that all fans get to camp with their friends no matter when they arrive onsite.
