These digital works of art will be available exclusively on Makers Place on Saturday, April 3rd at 5:30 pm CT! Bid on both still & animated versions of the 2021 Lineup Poster, as well as a special edition animated artwork dedicated to Roofus.
Throughout its 20-year history, Bonnaroo has evolved and innovated to make each and every event more enjoyable, with the safety of its fans, artists, and staff a top priority. Bonnaroo organizers as always will be in regular communication with local health and public safety officials and will continue to abide by relevant recommendations. As it approaches, Bonnaroovians will receive regular updates with the important information needed to plan their trip to The Farm, including any changes to policies and procedures they’ll need to know before entering the festival and campgrounds.
“It’s exciting to see Tennessee stages come back to life in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this internationally acclaimed festival,” said Gov. Bill Lee. “Fans are ready to gather together and celebrate their shared love of music once again. We welcome them back for a full Bonnaroo and what is sure to be a truly unforgettable event!”
Bonnaroo has continuously paid close attention to fan feedback in order to best enhance their onsite experience, each year incorporating additional features and exciting upgrades to the overall event. 2021 will be no different, with new activities and site improvements, including better signage, wayfinding help, pedicabs, info booths, cooling stations, and more.
Organizers have made getting around the festival easier and more convenient than ever before. This year’s 20th anniversary will see the debut of “Jamtrak,” a free on-site transport system enabling festival attendees to easily travel day or night to Centeroo and throughout the campground with multiple routes and stops along the way. Complete details will be announced soon.
Official Bonnaroo shuttle buses will now depart twice a day from Chattanooga as well as Nashville and return from The Farm twice each night. Pickup locations will be located near downtown in both cities, with free parking available for all shuttle pass holders. Single day shuttle options will also be available.
Bonnaroo’s campground hubs of curated activities and convenience – known as Plazas – will return better than ever in 2021. 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 incredible programming for the fans. The 2021 Plazas are shaping up as Bonnaroo’s best yet: 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, Where In The Woods will return bigger and better than ever, with much more still to be announced.
Bonnaroo 2021 will also see a number of stage improvements, including a spectacular production makeover for the festival’s second biggest stage, The Which Stage. In addition, The Other Stage – Bonnaroo’s beloved home for electronic music – will now see all-night performances and DJ sets through sunrise each day, along with spectacular new lighting, lasers, and surprises galore.
2021 will also feature an assortment of improved camping options, including an updated campground layout allowing for more convenient camping closer to Centeroo. Bonnaroovians will have a new way to stay cool at this year’s festival with the introduction of Air-Conditioned Darkroom Tents, available for GA, GA+, and VIP ticket holders. All set up and ready to go upon arrival, each tent comes with a choice of cot or inflatable bed, electric cooling unit, a souvenir blanket for each ticket holder, and more. This year will also see the introduction of Bonnaroo Daily Entry Camping Passes, a new system required for all vehicles and campers that will drastically cut wait times entering the festival site. GA ticket-buyers will be required to secure a vehicle pass by day for either Tuesday, Wednesday, or weekend access from Thursday through Sunday. The earlier campers arrive, the closer they will camp in proximity to Centeroo.
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. 2021 will feature all the classic Platinum amenities plus a dedicated Platinum vehicle entrance off Campground Road, expanded food and beverage offerings, as well as a completely shaded and wooded campground with newly added access to the Artist Lounge.
