Thunder Radio WMSR in Manchester is excited to announce that we will be hold a second Bonnaroo ticket sale for Coffee County residents for the fast-approaching 2023 festival. Bonnaroo will be held June 15-18 in Manchester. 

Thunder Radio held a local ticket sale in conjunction with Bonnaroo in January. Due to overwhelming demand, a second sale will be held from May 1 through May 12 (or while supplies last). A very limited number of additional tickets are available. They are first come, first serve and are for Coffee County residents only.
