Bonnaroo Music Festival has entered it’s 11th year earlier this month. The festival, which is almost into a mid-generation of music fans, took place from June 7-10, 2012 in Manchester, Tennessee. Organization and development of the property has led to an improved festival experience for newcomers and veterans alike. Arriving on site was carefree for most. The addition of festival cabs a few year back has added a nice luxury when treking a good distance after dancin’ for hours and it a good way to save time.

Out of 11 years of Bonnaroo, this was hands down the best festival and camping weather one could hope for mid-June in central Tennessee. Low humidity, breezes and minimal drizzles made the 2012 Bonnaroo Music Festival an absolute rage for the near 80,000 that converged on the 600 acre Manchester farm.


Headliners included Radiohead and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. From rockers Alice Cooper and Phish to rap moguls Ludacris, Black Star and GZA to country icon Kenny Rogers, Bonnaroo kept kids of all ages and fans of assorted genres of music partying through a full 4 days of top-notch entertainment.
