bonnaroo music & art festival is officially on the books for june 13-16, 2013 which marks the first time in years it will not overlap with the country music association festival held downtown. cma fest dates will be june 6-9, 2013.
even though bonnaroo is held in manchester, tennessee which is 65 miles outside the city, close to 100,000 people travel each year to attend the festival over four days. typically, area hotels are booked up alone from just cma but with bonnaroo on a different weekend now, the opportunity to maximize the benefits from both festivals is optimal. bonnaroo’s line-up will be announced in february.
