Bonnaroo Adds Hayley Williams To Curate Plaza + New Festival Updates

By  | 
The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has always sought new ways to enhance the fans’ onsite experience and the 2019 event will continue to emphasize this more than ever as it unveils an array of remarkable new features and improvements.
Last year saw a PHENOMENAL upgrade to the site’s communal areas, known as Plazas. This year, the event will see a campground transformed into a “Sanctuary of Self-Love” by special guest curator Hayley Williams of Paramore (who performed in 2018).
“The Yes Barn” presented by House of Yes and Little Cinema will once again feature jaw-dropping circus acts, mind-bending immersive cinema shows, wild theme parties, and Bonnaroo’s first-ever Pride parade. And, located at Plaza 7, The Ville – presented in partnership with Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. and local maker-space Fort Houston – will showcase Music City’s most creative, most entertaining, and most delicious with surprise performances, interactive and illuminated art installations, and late night fun.
Strategically located and well-lit public places throughout the campgrounds, Plazas include shade, free public Wi-Fi, showers, activities, charging stations, Clean Vibes Trading Post redemption centers, misting stations, medical, safety stations, information and portable restrooms.
The ever-popular Grove will also return in 2019, offering a shaded retreat during the days with art installations, hammocks, and more. The evenings will see the beautiful tree-filled space transformed by Nashville’s Fort Houston with more lights and inventive musical experiences than ever before.
The 2019 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will take place June 13 – 16, held as always at Great Stage Park, the spectacular 700-acre farm and event space located just 60 miles south of Nashville in Manchester, TN. Tickets – including General Admission (4 Day), VIP (4 Day), and more – are on sale now, exclusively via
