The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is a production of Superfly Productions and AC Entertainment. The festival has been held annually since 2002 at Great Stage Park on a 700 acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. Manchester is approximately 60 miles to the southeast of Nashville, Tennessee. Bonnaroo's main attractions include multiple stages of live music which feature a mixed bag of musical styles including world music, hip hop, jazz, bluegrass, Americana, Country music, folk, gospel, alternative music, reggae and electronica. Originally, jam bands were the mainstay at the festival, however, in recent years this has changed to include just about every type of music on the planet!

This Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival also features artisans and craftsmen selling one-of-a-kind treasures, food and drink vendors and fun activities put on by varied corporate sponsors. The sponsors of the Bonnaroo Festival are required to provide free activities for all attendees. Recently, the festival organizers have really pushed "being green" and emphasized the importance of recycling to the crowds.

The word "Bonnaroo" is a Cajun slang word meaning "a really good time." Popular rythm and blues artist Dr. John made the word popular with his 1974 album, Destively Bonnaroo. The name is also meant to honor the rich Louisiana music tradition which inspired the festival's organizers to present an array of spectacular live music for very loyal fans. This festival brings Coffee County in Tennessee more than $14 million in business revenue and more than $4 million in personal income annually (figures calculated in 2005).

It will be held from June 11-14, 2009 in Manchester, Tennessee. The Bonnaroo Festival was voted the Best Festival in 2008 by Rolling Stone who called it "the ultimate over-the top summer festival." Where else can you camp out on a 700 acre farm in Tennessee and enjoy a unique blend of people, entertainment and cultures? The headliners that have been announced for the festival are Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and Phish, who has recently reunited for a spring/summer 2009 tour. Phish has a following of phans that span the world, they never perform the same concert twice, which adds to their appeal.

Other artists who will be performing at the Bonnaroo Festival are Nine Inch Nails, Wilco, Elvis Costello, Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Al Green, Merle Haggard, David Byrne, Lucinda Williams, Santagold, Jenny Lewis, and the Ting Tings. Start praying for great weather and come enjoy a concert you'll long remember.
