When the gates to Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival open on Thursday, June 16, it will have been 1,096 days since the festival last took place.
With COVID-19 cancelling the 2020 festival and remnants of Hurricane IDA cancelling the 2021 event at the very last minute, it has been a long time since musical fans have descended on Manchester for a weekend of music and fun. That ends on Thursday.
The annual festival will actually begin opening gates for tiered entry on Tuesday, June 14. Locals can expect more congested traffic in town for a few days. However, this year’s attendance is expected to be about half of the normal capacity. According to event organizers with C3 Presents, this year’s attendance will be down versus the usual crowds that can reach around an estimated 100,000 strong.
Tickets do remain on sale for the event and those living in Coffee County can purchase tickets at a discounted rate through Thunder Radio.
Local discounted tickets are available for $304.14 after service charges, fees and taxes. Four day GA parking passes are also available for $138.45. A GA car camping / parking pass is available for $81.71.
Anyone purchasing tickets before the end of the day Monday, June 6, will have the option to have tickets mailed. Purchasing after Monday will mean your tickets will be at will-call pickup. Will-call box office will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday (June 14) through Thursday (June 16) at Coffee County Central High School.
Different from past years, anyone wishing to purchase tickets through the local discount can do so from their own devices. There is no need to come to the Thunder Radio studio. In fact, there are no tickets available at the actual station.
