Options will include General Admission (4 Day), GA+ (4 Day), VIP (4 Day), Platinum (4 Day), General Admission Camping & Parking, VIP Camping, Platinum Camping, and more. Once again, Bonnaroo is presenting an array of affordable options, with tickets starting at $35 down and accommodations available for as low as $70 per night. Car Camping Passes are priced at only $60 (plus fees) per car, not per person, allowing fans to both save money and reduce their carbon footprint by carpooling.
Throughout its history, Bonnaroo has listened to its fanbase and delivered improvements and enhancements to the festival experience year after year. 2020 will be no different, with more ticket options, new activities, site improvements including improved signage and navigation tools, on-site transportation options, additional info booths, additional Plaza programming and more.
New ticketing options for 2020 include GA+, offering traditional General Admission along with exclusive access to a brand new Centeroo lounge featuring air-conditioned restrooms, exclusive bars and food vendors, relaxed shaded seating, and more.
Camping at Bonnaroo is hardly “camping” by most definitions of the word – it’s an endless adventure of discovery and human connection with your friends, and a key part of the Bonnaroo experience. Expect crazy surprises, unique adventures, and stories you’ll tell for a lifetime – this is NOT your average festival camping.
2020 will see an assortment of improved tent and RV rental options, including new darkroom dome tents (available with AC), convenient camping near The Grove, and more.
Bonnaroo’s campgrounds include hubs of activities and convenience, known as Plazas, and will return better than ever in 2020. Strategically located and well-lit public places throughout the campgrounds, Plazas include shade, free public Wi-Fi, charging stations, misting stations, showers, restrooms, medical and safety stations, information booths and most importantly, incredible programming for festival fans.
The Plazas are headed for their best year yet in 2020. Hayley Williams of Paramore will return to curate an improved “Roo’s Sanctuary of Self Love,” House of Yes will host Bonnaroo’s second annual Pride Parade, grab an eclectic slice of Nashville at The Ville, and much more still to be announced.
Bonnaroo’s VIP and Platinum guests will also enjoy a large number of upgrades, including a new VIP campground layout providing direct entry into the venue and the mound at the What Stage, with more convenient placement for amenities in the venue as well as additional showers and restrooms in the campgrounds. Platinum patrons will enjoy the best campground and amenities on the entire site, all in a new spot directly south of Centeroo. This year will feature all the classic Platinum amenities plus a dedicated Platinum vehicle entrance off Campground Road as well as a completely shaded and wooded campground with newly added access to the Artist Lounge.
