This June 16-19, 2022, Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival will make its return to Manchester, TN for the first time since 2019. After COVID cancellations and weather hazards, Bonnaroovians will finally reunite for four days of positivity, music, arts, and so much more that makes this festival so special.
While the competitive lineup from all genres of music is a large part of the experience, there are countless other opportunities to get lost in the world of Bonnaroo. As we count down the days till the festival, check out these eight must do activities on the Farm this year.
1. Where In The Woods
Lost in the campgrounds of Bonnaroo, step into the stage among the woods for secret sets and headliners all weekend long.
This year’s Where In The Woods lineup features NGHTMRE, Dillion Francis, LP Giobbi, Jauz, Moore Kismet, VNSSA, and so many more incredible artists performing in the intimate woods of Bonnaroo.
Rumor has it that a Disco Ball UFO has landed in the woods, we’re not sure what that means but we’re so excited to find out.
2. Yoga ROO
Align your body, mind, and soul by participating in a Bonnaroo yoga session. Taking place each day throughout the weekend, there is no better way to relax and prepare for a night filled with dancing. You can find Bonnaroo yoga sessions at The Beyond and Zen Zone (Plaza 2).
3. BROO’ers Festival
Cool down with an ice-cold beer at Bonnaroo’s Broo’ers Festival! Located in the heart of Centeroo, kick back and enjoy 20+ breweries from across the U.S that will feature a variety of beers and ciders.
4. ROO Run 5K
Join the annual ROO run 5k race around the farm! Entry is $20 and goes toward the Bonnaroo Works Fund. Costumes are encouraged and prizes will be rewarded. This year’s ROO run is sponsored by Dunkin’ which means you can gear up with custom Dunkin’ merch and enjoy some chilled iced coffee and munchkins when you cross the finish line.
5. Planet ROO
Escape festival life and head to Planet ROO to learn about sustainability, wellness, and global consciousness. Check out workshops, dinners, yoga, meditations, dance parties, and so much more brought to you by a selection of non-profit organizations. This is the perfect place to relax and get educated on the importance of being green.
6. ROOm of Rythm
Previously known as the grove, come and relax in the new room of rhythm- a colorful world with tunes and art. This is the perfect spot to get some shade during the day, hang up a hammock, and take a nap.
7. Galatic Giddy Up
Bring your cowboy hat or space helmet to Plaza 5 for games, activities, and parties help bring the ROO community! Suprise B2B’s, headlining sets, and other activities like a Nashville Show Truck will be happening at the Galatic Giddy Up all weekend long.
8. Pride Parade
Come join a celebration of diversity, sexuality, and humanity in Bonnaroo’s annual Pride Parade. Happening on Saturday, June 18, the pride parade strides throughout the farm and all are encouraged to join. Wear whatever you please and dance along in this celebration of free sexuality.
