Bonnaroo single-day tickets now on sale
Still a few days left to get in on a great 2016 lineup (LCD Soundsystem headlining on Friday, Pearl Jam headlining on Saturday, plus Ellie Goulding, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Death Cab for Cutie, Haim, Misterwives, Chvrches, Chris Stapleton, Leon Bridges, Band of Horses, Lamb of God, and dozens more). Single-day options are fab if you don’t have the time or money to go for all four days, which would require not only the cost of the pass but the accommodation for three or four nights – not an easy thing to find at this late date unless you don’t mind driving 50 miles into and out of the farm, or have the funds to get a suite for a few thousand bucks at a swank hotel.
Purchase of these single-day tickets comes with a shuttle from Nashville. This is inconvenient for persons driving from the south or east (like, say, Atlanta), who would have to drive way past Manchester to get to the shuttle, only to then be driven back to Manchester. There doesn’t seem to be a way around this though, since one picks up the tickets at Will Call at Herschel Greer Stadium in Nashville. If you are coming from the other direction or flying in, then it is theoretically possible to pick up the ticket at the stadium and not take the shuttle and instead drive yourself. Check with Bonnaroo for the rules on this. They may have some kind of headcount or onboard ticket validation that will mess you up if not followed.
Please note it is also necessary to buy a separate parking pass if you drive your own car to the festival.
Single-day tickets with shuttle for Thursday and Sunday are $135.50; Friday and Saturday are $202.50. Both prices include applicable fees already. VIP options are also available. The value in VIP is mainly in the “VIP bathrooms,” which means they are slightly less gross than the regular serf bathrooms. SIGH. From horrible past experience, it is advised that anyone attending Bonnaroo or any festival to bring a flashlight and your own tissue and hand sanitizer towelettes. Those portapotties are PITCH BLACK DARK at night.
Full four-day tickets with shuttle are also available for $591.50. Other packages including hotel are also available, as are regular non-shuttle tickets.
