They are setting you up perfectly to take the whole gang down to the farm!  With tons of awesome festivities to explore while onsite including a silent disco, the next-level eats (vegan, veggie + gluten free), official merch and Bonnaroo cinema, dozens of comedians, access to the entire GA campground and not to mention the over 130 performances on 10 + stages, forgetting to pencil in Bonnaroo on your fest list just isn’t an option this year.
