Bonnaroo Dates Announced

Published: 2005-12-22
Even though the Bonnaroo Music Festival has only been in existence since 2002 its received high praises for the four day festival and music jam fest.

Dates for this year's festival held annually at the same 700 acre site in Manchester, Tennessee have been announced. So from June 16 - 18 next year 80,000 people will gather in the town just six miles southeast of Nashville to partake in the Bonnaroo festival. This is 10,000 less than last years crowed because organizers wanted to make the event less crowded.

Though the festival initially focused on jam bands the eight stages at the fest have held an array of musical talents in the past five years including The Dave Matthews Band, The Dead, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Roots, Jack Johnson and Ben Harper to name but a few.

Though music is the main attraction there will be all sorts to do at the festival's 100 acre entertainment village including an arcade, comedy club, and cinema.

No ticket information has been posted for the festival yet and so far there are only two confirmed acts, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Nickel Creek.
